When I first assembled this Harvest Chipotle Chili recipe, I thought it may taste hella weird. It was inspired by a recipe in Midwest Living and I’ll be honest with you; the idea of sweet potatoes in chili was both intriguing and somewhat off-putting to me. I decided to try it nonetheless and the result was pleasantly surprising. Not only did the sweetness of the potatoes work well with the smoky flavour of the chipotle spice, but the concoction was damn delicious as a whole as well. If you’re a fan of sweet and savory combined, you should definitely give this recipe a try.

Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 ½ lbs. ground beef
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 3 orange sweet peppers, chopped
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1 tbsp. chipotle spice
- 1 tsp. cumin
- 1 ½ cups sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 inch pieces
- 2 cups of white kidney beans, rinsed
- ½ cup edamame (I used frozen)
- 2 cans diced tomatoes
- 1 can beer
- 2 cups beef broth
- 2 medium Granny Smith apples, peeled and coarsely chopped
Here’s what you’ll do:
- In a large pan, cook ground beef and onions over medium heat until meat has browned. Drain the fat.
- In a large cooking pot, combine beef, onions, sweet peppers, garlic and chipotle. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Add sweet potatoes, beans, edamame, tomatoes, beer, beef broth and apples. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 30 minutes. If you have an extra beer kicking around, now is the time to crack it open and have one while you wait.
- Serve and enjoy!
