I need a killer recipe for the chili cook off here at work!  I need something that your family and friends raved over, couldn't stop talking about.  I'm going up against beef and other chili's so it's got to be REALLY good!!

I haven't actually tried it yet, but this sounds amazing.  It's a black bean and sweet potato chili.

Do you want it a little sweet? Or do you want it spicy? Or savory? There are a couple different ways I can give you to put it together.

Also are you going vegan? Are you going to/wanting to use substitute meat?

No, I eat vegan a lot but since this is for the masses I'd rather be vegetarian.  No soy products if possible.  Thanks!
