Being chilly in the winter? No thanks.

Eating chili in the winter? Yes please!

I am always freezing so I love anything that will help keep me warm.  That includes turtleneck sweaters, wool socks, and crockpot chili.  Even though chili typically gets its heartiness from ground beef or turkey, the sweet potato in this recipe makes up for that.  Pair with some warm vegan cornbread and you will have the perfect winter meal.
