We finally went skiing this weekend!
Skiing is about the only thing that makes winter bearable for me. I hate the cold, but I love the snow, love skiing, and love being out in fresh air for a whole day.
And when I come home after a long day of skiing, I love having a big bowl of hot and steamy chili. Is there anything better after being out in the cold all day?
I wanted to share this Sweet Potato Chili recipe I made for Randall Beans recently. This chili has bite sized sweet potato pieces and raisins, and both add a touch of sweetness to the whole dish, which is a perfect complement to the spice. The idea of adding raisins is something I got from Aldo’s mom – she always adds raisins to food that has ground beef, such as empanadas and pastelon de arroz. The sweetness of the raisins next to the savory flavor of meat is always a delicious combination.
I also added a touch of cinnamon to this chili for a bit of depth. But don’t worry, the cinnamon and raisins in the chili do not make it taste like a breakfast cinnamon raisin bagel. You barely notice the two ingredients in the dish as you are eating it, but they do add a layer of depth to the flavor and make everything so good.
You can find the recipe for the Sweet Potato Chili over at Randall Beans.
