Chili is one of my favorite things this time of the year!  It is hearty, easy to make and I just make a batch and get several meals out of it! This Sweet Potato Lentil Chili is flavorful and delicious plus really healthy!  It is packed with fiber and protein thanks to the sweet potatoes and lentils so you can feel good about eating it!
