Chili, Mild Vegan

Submitted by: SMBRYCE1

Introduction

This smelled so good while it was cooking that we didn't want to wait any longer and ate it for lunch rather than dinner. Be sure to stir the chili occasionally while it's cooking. If you want to cook this a bit faster, slice the sweet potato and bake as fries instead of putting them in the chili, or cook for 5 minutes in the microwave on high, then chop and add to chili This smelled so good while it was cooking that we didn't want to wait any longer and ate it for lunch rather than dinner.
