Hey guys!

I can’t go through an entire fall season without sharing a new crock pot with y’all!  In fact, there are already close to 20 vegetarian slow cooker soup recipes on Running in a Skirt.  I shared a post highlighting them all the other week… here it is if you missed it!  Creating and sharing these soup recipes has felt like something I just do.  In fact, they have always been some of the most popular on my site.

The first one I posted was my Award Winning Vegetarian Chili.  It’s a tried and true family favorite that I make pretty regularly this time of year.  Since that chili has been so popular, I struggled with making another one.  Could it compete?

The answer is YES!  This Crock Pot Sweet Potato Black Bean Chili recipe is actually totally different from my first creation… yet just as good!

Why you’ll love this Crock Pot Sweet Potato Black Bean Chili recipe…

If you want a classic, bean-filled, vegetarian chili you can’t go wrong with my Award Winning Vegetarian Chili.

But if you want something a little DIFFERENT… this one is for YOU!

My Crock Pot Sweet Potato Black Bean Chili recipe is filled with hearty sweet potatoes, black beans and red bell pepper.  It not only has lots of color but lots of flavor.

The biggest surprise with this soup is the Mexican/ Southwest inspired flavors.  I used traditional chili powder but also a healthy dose of my Mexican/Taco Seasoning Blend.  You can use your favorite store-bought OR try my recipe here.  I make this and keep it in my pantry all the time.

To stay with the flavor theme I added cilantro and lime on top!  The fresh green gives this chili a POP you just can’t ignore.

As shown this chili is vegan but you could easily add sour cream/ plain greek yogurt and cheese if you’d like!
