Sweet Potato & Kale Chili

Nothing warms you better than a large pot of chili on the stove. Try this version sans beans and full of hearty veggies, such as sweet potatoes and mushrooms. You add the greens at the end for an extra boost of nutrients. Kale is a great source of calcium, chlorophyll, iron, and vitamins A and C. This one-pot meal is easy to make on a busy weeknight.
