Black beans and Sweet T's can go together fine enough, elsewhere, but not in chili. Tried this recipe as written, but had to change to using winter squash after the first time - preferably something less stringy than pumpkin (think butternut squash.....yum!). Just not sweet potatoes. Thanks for the recipe, though. The spices are spot on! Great with rice and salsa spooned on top, or with tomalita and a touch of queso fresco and/or FF sour cream, or even with corn bread. Add pickled jalapenos to coleslaw, and you've got yourself a feast! Yum!
Sweet Potato & Black Bean Chili
From EatingWell: January/February 2011
Make a double batch of this quick vegetarian chili, full of black beans and sweet potatoes, and eat it for lunch the next day or freeze the extras for another night. We love the smoky heat from the ground chipotle, but omit it if you prefer a mild chili. Serve with tortilla chips or cornbread and coleslaw.

I make this frequently & it has been a hit for the teacher's lounge. I usually put more sweet potatoes in, and top it with avocado chunks which are a nice compliment to the heat. Depending on the ingredients you use, this can be gluten-free and vegan which is great when feeding a crowd. No one can resist a 2nd or 3rd bowl! :)
Tryied to Followed recipie, except couldn't find Ground chipolte, so used a canned chipolte in adobo sauce. Super spicy, but thought it needed a little sweet, so I added 1/2 cup ketchup. Might sound gross, but it turned out just right, sweet and spicy! Oh, left out the salt as well.
I nuked the sweet potatoes to speed things up; 6-8 minutes. I subbed broth for water. Added 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp cocoa powder, 1/3 c brown sugar, 4-oz green chilis. More cumin, less chili powder.
Love Love this dish with make it again and again
