Reviews for Black Bean, Chorizo & Sweet Potato Chili
"I wasn't sure how the sweet potatoes would be in this recipe, but it was very good. I used 1/2 lb chorizo and 1/2 lb ground beef, and omitted the jalapenos. We just don't like things really spicy. The flavors were excellent. It's a keeper!"
"This chili was awesome. It has a smoky, rich flavor. I added 2 Tbs. brown sugar and 3 kung pao peppers. Substituted 2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce for the jalapeno peppers. Flavors were excellent."
"OMG, this was such a big hit with my guest. I even made a 2nd batch for my vegetarian friends by substituting vegetarian bulk sausage for the chorizo and veg. stock in place of the beef stock."
