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!

    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! :)

    I’m on day 4 of my first Whole30 and I made this for dinner last night and LOVED it. I honestly think it’s the best chili I’ve ever made. I left out the celery and added zucchini, and carrots as well as a little tomato paste along with fire roasted diced tomatoes and lime juice. My husband, who is a chef, even said it was one of his favorites I’ve made. I’m having a hard time deciding if I want to eat the leftovers for breakfast today or lunch at work tomorrow. Thank you so much for this!

      I haven’t tried it but I bet it would be great in a slow cooker. I would brown the meat them add the rest. Let me know if you try it!

      Would love to hear how it goes. Presentation is everything. Make it yummy and make it pretty. Do a couple of test runs to get it just like you like it. :)
