Menu Monday: Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Chili

We love our slow cooker so much this time of year. Life is so busy with theater, work, and school, so it’s nice to be able to chop something up and throw it in the crockpot, so it’s ready when you get home at night. This recipe is a tasty, easy, vegetarian chili that is really to eat.
