Very good. I substituted broth for the coffee and added a little cinnamon.

Awesome recipe, I had already brown lean ground beef, onion and green pepper before I found this recipe. I added one extra small can of diced tomatoes, approximately 2 more tablespoons chili powder, one tbls cumin and honey. This is a great recipe whether you modify it or not!

This is so good! A great healthy chili for a cold night. Every time I make this for others I get requests for the recipe.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 31, 2013

WOW! This is so amazing! I haven't even put any in a bowl yet and I can't keep my hands off of it. We like really hot spice so I added a jalapeno and pre-roasted the sweet potato cubes in the oven with a chipotle rub, sea salt and cayenne.
