Beef and Sweet Potato Crockpot Chili

Beef and Sweet Potato Crockpot Chili

You’ll find this Beef and Sweet Potato Crockpot Chili recipe super easy to make and super easy to eat! I think my husband and I finished the whole pot in a matter of 2 days. It is delicious and comforting, perfect for those colder days when all we want to do is get cozy at home and catch up on some Netflix TV shows. It’s also perfect for days like the Super Bowl…and since that day is coming up here real soon, this recipe is here just in the nick of time!

You can make this chili recipe in advance, and just keep it warm in your crockpot for when your family or friends are over to watch the game. A good idea is to place bowls and spoons next to it, so that everyone can just help themselves to a cup whenever they feel like having a nice little bowl of soup. Also, putting condiments next to the chili will bring some fun and creative freedom to your guests; you can place hot sauce, a small bowl of cilantro, a small bowl of cheese (if your guests eat cheese) or a small bowl of avocado slices next to it for them to add what they like. These little additions will make this recipe extra good and extra fun.

Because this chili recipe excludes beans, you don’t have to worry about eating just one bowl! It will not bring discomfort or bloating, so eat away.

My husband likes to top it off with crushed sweet potato chips to add a little crunch. If you’re anything like him, and like a little crunch with every bite, you may want to try his trick. Happy cooking!
