Autumn is one of my favorite times of year. The weather has cooled off just enough that my outside chores don’t leave me feeling completely exhausted, but there is still enough sunshine to keep me from feeling the winter blues. It is also a great season for cooking because so many wonderful fruits and vegetables are ready to harvest.
This Hearty Sweet Potato Chili is a great way to warm up on a chilly autumn evening. I used fresh oregano and green peppers from my garden and onions, sweet potatoes and tomatoes from the local farmer’s market. The combination of sweet and savory really makes this chili unique. Add extra cayenne pepper if you like your chili to have a little kick.
