Recipe by A Messy Cook
Here’s a spicy, fun vegetarian entrée. The chunky chili would be good over baked white potatoes too, or maybe brown rice or cornbread. Lots of variation possibilities! From Light & Tasty’s Feb/March 2006 issue. I have not made this yet, but it sure looks good.
- 8 medium sweet potatoes, washed and scrubbed
- 2 medium green peppers, chopped
- 2 medium onions, chopped
