I got back to my Sunday routine of throwing something together in the crockpot, to be used for dinner that night and then lunches for the week. This time I made Sweet Potato Chili from my very favorite slow cooker blog. It took less than 15 minutes from the time I started chopping until the time I walked away from the kitchen to do more productive things. (Things like homework, and catching up on Gossip Girl, don’t judge!)
I pretty much followed the recipe, except that I used an extra can of diced tomatoes, and a small can of drained mushrooms. A few words about the orange juice: I don’t usually have any juice in the house, and generally prefer to eat whole fruit. However, I purchased a small carton of OJ for this recipe and it was totally worth it! The chili was spicy from the chili powder and paprika, and the sweetness of the orange juice offset this perfectly. Don’t all the pretty colors remind you of fall foliage? This was a great dish, and I am sure I will come back to this recipe on another Sunday soon.
