    What an interesting recipe! I’ve never seen a chili recipe that contained sweet potato. Sounds wonderful, I’m going to have to try that (even if I don’t follow the rest of the recipe).

      It wasn’t sweet at all, either. It was an interesting chili and I liked it–just wish it had had more chipotle flavor.

    Ooh, this recipe looks good! I’m a huge fan of chili, too, even more so after I bought my first slow cooker years ago. I love adding chipotles in adobo sauce to my chili. The smoky flavor they add is just amazing and it adds just enough of a spicy kick without being overwhelming.

      Where do you find chipotles? I couldn’t find it anywhere!

      I love chili in a slow cooker. I’ve been on the search for the best slow cooker chili recipe for awhile now.

    Penzey’s spices (see website for mail order and locations list) sells excellent chipotle powder – not very hot, but it has a lovely rich smokiness. I use it in lots of ways, including in scrambled eggs with salsa, on roasted sweet potato, with any kind of barbecue, etc.

      Thank you for the tip! I will check it out. There’s actually a store near my office. I didn’t even think to try there.

    Looks amazing! I am a chili fan, although we only do vegetarian or sometimes chicken. I like savory sweet potatoes so I bet I would like this!

      I’ve never tried chili with chicken in it. Interesting idea!
