In my opinion,  Chili is an essential recipe during the winter.This hearty vegetarian chili includes sweet potato and black beans along with flavourful seasoning such as cumin, cinnamon and chili powder.  This chili is bursting with flavour and is my favorite chili recipe at the moment. This chili is the perfect healthy weeknight meal. You can even make it and take it with you for lunch,  I am sure you will make everyone jealous!
