The warm healing spices of garlic, cumin, cinnamon, coriander, turmeric, and chili powder are the perfect combination as we descend into the final days of winter. The warmth of these spices will fill our homes and bodies as we get cozy with our big blankets, warm fires, and soft sweaters.
The star of this hearty winter dish are the sweet potatoes. The tender sweetness of the potatoes add a balance with the richness of the spices. The potatoes add quality protein and substantial quantities of vitamins A, B, and C, while the pungent spices stimulate the immune system and increases circulation.
Double the recipe if feeding a crowd, or save and meal prep for leftovers during the week. Leftover chili are delicious on tortilla chips garnished with fresh onion, olives, lettuce and guacamole. Leftovers can also be made into Shepherd's Pie or enchiladas.
