Instant Pot Sweet Potato Chicken Chili

They say that sweet potatoes have everything you need in them. And they’re probably the single most versatile vegetable that I know. I didn’t like them much when I was young; that is, unless they were covered in butter and sugar – or baked inside a pie. But things have changed these days. This Instant Pot sweet potato chicken chili is an amazing twist on a timeless classic. The hint of sweetness from the potatoes pairs perfectly with the traditional chili spices. Easy to make and perfect for a weeknight dinner. And plenty for leftovers for lunch.
