Sweet Potato Kale Chili


Have you ever felt so unmotivated to do anything, especially cook? That has definitely been me for quite some time. Which is unusual for me because I love to cook!!! Well, I have been feeling pretty un-inspired to cook let alone create anything new. A little over a month ago one of my fellow FMB contributors offered up some meals from one of those meal delivery services.  I was quite unsure of how this whole situation would go over because my husband is REALLY picky. Surprisingly enough it was a winner!

I’m not really sure why or how this quickly became such a winner of a recipe in my house. Generally, I am the only one who eats vegetables around here. My husband said that it was a hearty bowl of goodness and that I could definitely make it again! WHAT? WOW! 

I have recreated this recipe since because it was so well liked. The second time I made this I had some leftover ground elk, that I had seasoned with my taco seasoning, and I added it in to “beef” up the chili. It was a nice addition. The next time I make it I may even try spinach rather than the kale. 

Who here struggles with finding recipes that will please every palate in their home??
