Sweet Potato Chili

Since I love chili and I love sweet potatoes!  And since my traditional chili is not Whole30 compliant (beans).  I went in search for a new recipe.  And found this great one from tastesoflizzyt.com

I did make a few tweaks, based on what I know I like.  But not much, And it was good!  I cooked it in the crockpot.
