Slow cooker chicken and sweet potato chili

This recipe has become a favorite of mine recently. I love the spices in this dish, so fragrant and flavorful! It’s not all that pretty, but it is spicy and delicious!  Don’t let the long ingredient list intimidate you, it’s mainly spices. This is a really easy recipe. Let the slow cooker do the work for you while you’re at work and come home to a ready dinner. That’s what I like to do.
