This recipe was shared with me by a dear friend, and as soon as we tasted it, it quickly became a favorite. There is just something so special about homemade recipes being shared among friends. Slightly different than traditional chili, this recipe is lighter and has more diverse flavors from the variety of vegetables and ingredients that give it a fresh but warm and cozy feel. The sweet potatoes provide this recipe with a sweet and savory component that is sure to become one of your favorites, too! We made this recipe with ground venison, but any red meat could be substituted.
