A Killer Veggie Chili

Bust out the slowcooker! I served this chili to a bunch of hungry baseball fans and it was a hit! It is hearty and healthy and most important, delicious.

Cooking Instructions

Combine the onion, bell pepper, garlic, chili powder, chipotle in adobo, cumin, cacao or cocoa, cinnamon, 1 teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon black pepper.
Add the tomatoes, beans, sweet potato, and 1 cup water.
