Slow Cooker Hearty Sweet Potato Chili


It’s finally Crocktober, which means it’s time to pull out your Crockpot™ and create some tasty recipes for fall! We, in particular, are so excited about the weather finally cooling down so we can make all the vegan soups and chilis! We love making chili because it’s not only perfect for cleaning out your pantry, it also takes minimal prep work and is so easy to pull together.

Lucky for us (and you!), The Crockpot MyTime™ Slow Cooker makes cooking even easier because it automatically adjusts its cooking cycle to meet your meal time. How much easier does it get than that?

All you need for this simple (but delicious) recipe is:



Sweet Potato


Garlic + spices

Serrano pepper (optional)

Cashew Cream + parsley for topping

So, what are you waiting for? Run (don’t walk!) to your nearest Target and pick up your Crockpot MyTime™ Slow Cooker today so you can get cooking!

    Made this for dinner tonight. Perfect for our 30 degree weather. I’m the only vegan in a house with 3 meat eating boys. My husband, who does not like sweet potatoes said he could not taste them and requested I keep this recipe to make again. Win Win.

    Delicious chili! I didn’t have a serrano pepper so I used a dried one I soaked in the stock and I scraped out the inside flesh to the chili.
