Chili is one of the best parts of fall.  And pumpkin spice sweet potato chili encompasses all of my fall favorites!  A warm dish, pumpkin spices, sweet potatoes.  Really, what’s not to love!?!

The best part of this dish is that it is a one-potter! You heard me right people, only one dish to wash after making this awesome meal.  Serve it up with some cornbread, or yummy warm peasant bread, or just eat it as is.  You really can’t go wrong!
