Want a healthy easy and fresh way to make chili? Try this slow cooker version featuring Black Beans and Sweet Potatoes. Let this chili simmer and marinate all day long. The aroma wafting from your kitchen will drive your family crazy! You can even start your cooker the night before on low. The longer it cooks, the thicker it gets. I didn’t drain the beans before I added them and felt it was a bit to watery. Next time I will drain them. Let me know what you find when you make this chili. We topped our servings with some grated cheddar cheese and a dollop of sour cream. Enjoy!
