Note: I only made the chili.
I had to make a few substitutions, fresh tomatoes for canned and increasing the broth.Mixed chili beans instead of kidney beans.
Taste great! I love sweet potatoes. I'll be enjoying this for my lunch shortly.
THANKS FOR SHARING it's a keeper. - 4/14/10
Very Very good. VERY satisfying. Makes a great lunch at work. The Avocado cream is a wonderful addition. (I love avocados) I made this with black beans (all I had on hand)...and thought about putting some corn in it. Perhaps next time. I also added 1/4 tsp ceyenne pepper and a pinch of pepper flacks - 12/4/12
I can't wait to try this! I love making spicy foods with sweet potatoes - sweet potato black bean burritos, sweet potatoes in ALL my chili recipes, spicy sweet potato fries, and on and on.
Even though I haven't made this recipe yet, I am giving it a five star rating for the idea and avocado cream. - 3/23/13
This dish was not bad, but could have been better. Two of my teens that were home were not too fussy about it-one said he didn't like it much and left all the sweet potato pieces on the plate, the other didn't touch it at all, once he tasted it. It wasn't worth the amount of work I put into doing it - 1/3/12
Made this for dinner last night while looking for a dish that was both hearty enough for my veggie bf and healthy enough for me - this was the perfect fit! Filling and yummy. I used lemon yogurt by accident, but the citrus plus avocado worked really well with the cream too. - 8/23/10
