Classic Beef Chili

The Simple Art of EatingWell

This classic beef-and-bean chili gets a nutritional boost from shredded sweet potato. We call it a stealth vegetable because it melts into the chili so well that even picky eaters will gobble it up.

Amazing Chili!!

After the micture was done simmering, i took out all the excess liquids and made it into a gravie type deal by adding 1 tsp of flour ato 1/3 cup cold water then proceeding to add it to the sauce. It made the chili nice and thick. I also added celery for a bit of a crunch. And 2 lbs of meat instead of 1 lb

so rich and thick

I really liked this recipe, but I omitted the salt. I also used "no salt added" canned tomatoes instead of regular. I felt that the recipe was good without the salt and will make this again.

easy recipe, tastes good

We were a bit concerned about the sweet potato (in chili?!) - but it was really amazing. FYI - we used ground turkey instead of beef.

Quick and tasty. Kid friendly too!

Quick to make, everyone loved it, even my picky 5 and 3 year old kids. Grown ups were able to spice it up with some Chipotle hot sauce. Definitely a keeper.

Healthy, quick dinner that everyone will like.
quick comfort food

I made this pot of chili in less than an hour. The only thing that really took any time was grating the potato (I did it by hand) and chopping the onion. So if you have time to do that, you have time to make a healthy meal. The sweet potato does "disappear" into the chili so kids or picky adults would never even know it was there. Will make again!
