We had sweet potatoes to use and because of the weather I wanted a warm bowl of chili. We added the sweet potato and used black beans, red onion, lime juice and cinnamon to steer away from traditional chili flavors. Add more tomatoes or make it vegetarian! This dish is so easily adjusted to suit your taste buds. The measurments are not exact. I just tend to throw ingredients in and feel out the balance.
