Why I Love this Recipe

Chili on a cold day is just about the perfect dinner. Usually, when you think of chili you think about how it has to cook all day in order for the flavors to taste just right. Well, you’re not totally wrong but sometimes chili doesn’t have to take that long. This Chorizo Sweet Potato Black Bean Chili is ready in just 30 minutes and is packed full of spicy southwest flavor. For a quick burst of spicy flavor I threw in some taco seasoning and called it a day. So easy and so delicious.

Just remember to keep the sweet potato cubes 1 inch or they will take too long to cook. When then the sweet potatoes are just fork tender that’s when the chili is ready. You want them to hold their form and not get too mushy.
