Super Food Chili
This Chili has evolved over time. At first it was just the basics : Beans, Tomatoes & a few veggies. But then my husband took me to Trilogy Sanctuary and I was blown away by their Vegan Chili!
I realized I wasn't even scratching the surface with how dope vegan chili could be! My husband also wanted to make sure he got credit for encouraging me to kick up the spice level to this recipe so, thank you Nicholas, I could not have done it without you:)

-4 Cloves Garlic, minced

-1 large Sweet Potato, diced
-1 Tblspn Smoked Paprika, or regular Paprika
