Slow cooker Chili

My friend Jill came up with a deceptively complex chili, full of nuance and flavor, that suits infants, children, and grownups alike (wow). The sweet potato adds a special something. Her simple recipe, without measurements because you can make it to taste:

Cubed sweet potato
Dried beans (black or red)
Onion, minced
Tomatoes, chopped (or a can)
Cumin, powdered (optional)
Paprika (optional)
salt and pepper

Put everything in the slow cooker. Cover with water and then some. Cook on low overnight or high for 3 hours until thickened and soft.

I made this recently with (guess what?) corn and bell peppers and potatoes. Yum.
