Spicy Sweet Potato & Two-Bean Chili

When it's cold outside and I'm looking for something warm and comforting, vegetarian chili is one of my favorite things to make. It's simple to prepare, has minimal ingredients, and an abundance of flavor. In order to keep things interesting, I like to get creative with my chili and add some unexpected ingredients from time to time. This one has a ton of kick, but the sweet potatoes add the perfect balance to a bowl of bold flavors.
