My recipe for Sweet potato chilli in the recipe book

Monday, February 13, 2017 asked me to provide a low budget recipe for their new cookbook. I created this sweet potato chilli dish which is not only cheap to make but delicious too! Take a look at the free online book- it looks amazing!


This is a wholesome and hearty vegetarian version of the traditional Chill Con Carne.  It is packed full of flavours and textures and is excellent value for money. This is one that all the family will enjoy.  I made it for my best friends Molly and Rachel and we loved it.  I will definitely be making it again!

You can find the VoucherBox free recipe book here.  Its well worth a look for some fabulous low budget recipes from 22 food and lifestyle bloggers.  I am very proud to be one of them.  Make sure to check it out.
