Sweet Potato Quinoa Chili

I’ve kind of been stuck on new ideas for recipes to make.  I can’t ever seem to find a happy medium….either I have a billion ideas that I need to do RIGHT NOW or nothing.

So I asked some friends for suggestions. And healthy chili was one of those suggestions. It was perfect timing too. The weather has been pretty comfortable for the last few weeks in Texas but got really cold today. And this chili hit the spot!
