Sweet Potato Black Bean Chili

 Sweet Potatoes, Black Beans, and a traditional Chili flavor combine into a soup that will warm you from the inside out.

Chili Recipe

I am on a health journey, not to make any drastic changes that I can't keep up with forever, but to simply start making a turn to eating a more plants and whole grains diet with certain meats sparingly.  My meat & Potatoes loving husband is on board if I am willing to compromise on occasion for him.  To that end. I added Turkey Sausage to this version. He was quite skeptical before he tasted it, but he actually loved it! 

Chili Recipe

I will for sure make this version every few times we make chili!, actually I am thinking of making another batch and store in individual serving containers for the freezer . I work from home now, and lunches has been my biggest issue of healthier eating. I need it fast and don't want to hunt around. So if I have this soup ready to heat and eat ,I think I'll be more successful.

Let's get this Soup going!
