Sweet Potato Spiced Chilli

40 min


One-bowl / one-pot

This spiced chilli is super hearty, comforting, filling and makes for the perfect weeknight meal. We always like to make a super huge batch as meal prep to then enjoy throughout the week. And try not to skip on the avocado, lime, or yogurt, as they really help to marry all the flavours together - yumm!
