Hello friends!

Soup season is here! As the weather begins to cool, I always crave soup and this chicken chili with sweet potato is a favorite forever. I’m not a big fan of ground beef, so traditional chili isn’t my favorite, but I love this twist because it incorporates some of my favorites. I also love it because, like many soups, it gets better as it settles down, so making a big batch on Sunday and eating it for lunch or dinner throughout the week works well. If you’re not a fan of red chili, try my white chicken chili!
