Life gets busy for me sometimes.  I work hard to create awesome recipes to share here at Savory Lotus.  Working from home doing something I love is my dream and my vision.   There is a lot that goes into running my own business. And I thank you all for your love and support.  That being said, my family needs to eat every day as well.  That’s when I bust out this super easy, deliciously hearty Paleo Sweet Potato Chili.

Beans and me are not friends.  I took me along time to finally say good bye to all beans and legumes as they just don’t agree with me.  My belly is much happier since we made the change.  I do, however, love me a nice bowl of warm chili.  No worries, because you will never miss the beans in this savory, lightly spiced bowl of yumminess.

So next time you need a healthy, nutrient-dense meal to put on the table, go ahead and make yourself a pot of this sweet potato chili.  I serve it with loads of avocado and cilantro over a bed of steamed greens.  You will LOVE it!

1/2 to 1 cup celery, diced

2 cups of your favorite red sauce OR crushed tomatoes

2 cups good quality homemade broth

1 and 1/2 tsp celtic sea salt (like this)

Directions:

  1. Combine all the spices and salt in a small bowl and set aside.

    YUM! Just made this to take to a family (sooo glad it turned out yummy) and made some for us too. Thanks for the great flavor filled recipe.

      I think that it would freeze OK. The sweet potatoes may be super soft when you defrost and reheat but it would still taste amazing! :)
