Sweet Potato Chili With Gansett Porter

Beer, chili, football …these are a few of our favorite things. Not all chili needs meat. Sweet potatoes are deliciously in season right now and with the holidays and football Sundays upon us we thought we’d share an excellent recipe from the archives. This one calls for Gansett porter in it as well. Just in time to warm you up. Enjoy this one tonight. It only takes about an hour with prep and you’ll need just one pot.


2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large yellow onion, chopped
2 poblano peppers, cored and chopped
2 jalapeño peppers, diced
2 medium sweet potatoes, diced
3 large garlic cloves, minced (about 2 tablespoons)
