superfood chili {a recipe}

Thursday, March 6, 2014

To go with the snow this week I made a big pot of chili; nothing quite like a big bowl of deliciousness on a snowy evening.
I found the recipe on Pinch of Yum!  Jalepeno Sweet Potato Chicken Chili -- superfood heaven in a bowl.  The recipe was simple and because of my snow day I was able to let it simmer a long while, developing those flavors-- soup magic I suppose.

Sweet potatoes, black beans, garlic, tomatoes, jalepenos!  You really can't go wrong with all those wonderful & healthy ingredients.  I tweaked the recipe a bit: adding an extra sweet potato, not adding the ground flax meal{cause I didn't have any on hand}, chopped chicken instead of shredded and I used an extra jalepeno or two!  The spicier the better.

And I must say it is a new favorite.  I will definitely be making this again and again and again.
I am purposely not posting the recipe here because if you haven't been to Pinch of Yum yet, then you need to head over there ASAP.   Since I kinda consider myself a bit of foodie, this blog has become a new favorite.  So many great recipes! -- healthy ones & not, easy directions, and the photos!  Well they make me want to lick my computer screen, I'm not even kidding.  

I like to think of this pot of chili as my one last nod to winter and all the warm comforting dishes that are perfect during her time of the year.  But I'm over it.  I'm ready for salads, berries, burgers, iced coffee, corn on the cob & beer-brats on the charcoal grill!  Who's with me!?



  1. Looks delicious, I would change the recipe slightly by taking away the chicken and adding more sweet potato. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Oh this looks delicious. I really need to try and make soup soon.
