After creating a thick and chunky chili recipe, I realized it would make a fun topping for sweet potatoes. The comforting dish is a great way to warm up cold nights. —Jill Nerbas of St. Albert, Alberta

"I made these not really expecting much of the recipe, but I wanted to try it because it seemed like an easy meal. I really liked the taste of this meal, but my family wasn't really impressed. It was fairly easy to make and you could easily substitute ingredients, for example, instead of the parsley, I substituted cilantro. I would eat this again, but I don't think my family would!"
