Whole30 Smoky Sweet Potato Chili

Everything we do is to enhance your life in a positive way. When you make a qualifying purchase through the provided links, I may earn an affiliate commission from Amazon & other retailers.

This delicious & homey dish calls for Whole30 compatible tomato puree & crushed tomatoes. If you're new to Whole30 or not sure where to start, I highly recommend perusing the virtual aisles of Thrive Market. My husband and I have been using their membership-based service for some time now to support our efforts in eating foods that are diet-friendly & nutritious.

Also a must for this recipe? Smoked salt. Of course, the recipe works without it, but it does ADD tremendous flavor if you can swing it. Conveniently available on Amazon!

And here are some of my favorite bowls to serve up this fun dish in, available through Amazon. For a classic look, these white chili bowls with handles are great...and if you're feeling more festive, or want a little more room, try these ceramic pasta bowls.
