Paleo Sweet Potato and Plantain Chili

Sweet Potato and Plantain Chili: Jessi's Kitchen I haven’t had a good bowl of chili in a while and this Paleo Sweet Potato and Plantain Chili is giving me life. I decided that with the weather dropping so much this week that I really wanted to make some. Chili is just a classic and nostalgic soup to me.

My husband and I still can’t tolerate legumes very well so I wanted to make a hearty chili without them. I decided to use a combination of sweet potato and plantains in place of the beans and they were SO perfect. Exactly what I was craving.

I prefer to use plantains that are kind of in between the green and yellow. The yellow is a bit to sweet for my taste in this soup but feel free to use whatever flavor you prefer.

I enjoyed serving the soup with some fresh cilantro and goat cheese!

Enjoy!
