    I don't have a slow cooker, so I altered the recipe for the stovetop. I boiled the sweet potatoes and carrots for 15-20 minutes, with just enough water to cover the vegetables. Then I added the rest of the ingredients and let it cook on low for an hour. It turned out great! - 7/16/12

    This was a wonderful surprise! I did a shortcut: Roasted slices of yams (w/olive oil & paprika), then poured Amy's Spicy BlackBean Chili on top. It was delicious! - 4/11/09

    I liked this a lot, but thought it needed another 15 oz can of diced tomatoes and added a small can of mild green chilies diced and some diced jalapeno peppers to give it a bit more spice. - 10/16/07

  • This chili is delicious. The sweet potatoes are a good addition. Instead of 4 cans of black beans. I used 2 cans of black beans, one can of red beans, and one can of chili bean mixture. I also added about 2 tablespoons of chopped jalapenos. It added some heat without overpowering the flavors. - 7/6/11
