Sweet Potato & Black Bean Chili

Tonight, the hubby requested sweet potato and black bean chili. It's becoming a Halloween tradition in our house and it really couldn't be more appropriately colored!

 Black and orange soup for Halloween?! What could be better??

I found this recipe here:

 This was one of the cookbooks I bought while doing my meat-free experiment earlier this year. It has some good recipes in it!

 Here's what you do:

Saute some onion, garlic and 2 diced sweet potatoes for a few minutes. Add a jar of mild (or hot) salsa and 2 cups of water.

Add 1-3 teaspoons of chili powder, depending on how spicy you like it.  Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until the potatoes are tender.

Add the black beans (either 2 cans, or in my case frozen).

Simmer until ready to eat. Add more chili powder if necessary!

Here in Ohio, trick or treating happens on the Thursday before Halloween so we just came inside after passing out candy for an hour and a half. It was COLD out there!! We had about 100 kids. Best costume was the wolf from Little Red Riding Hood who dressed as grandma.

Here's this year's pumpkins:

And the boys enjoying Halloween:
