Sweet Potato Chicken Chili

I made this chili last week when Alabama was experiencing some strange below freezing weather. I went to the store and got ingredients for two different kinds of chili. I decided to make this one first and it was perfect after a long day of running, classes, and trying to stay warm!

Here's what you need:
1 medium red onion, chopped
1 TBSP chili powder
1 TBSP ground cumin
2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 28 oz can fire-roasted diced tomatoes
1 15.5 oz can black beans, rinsed
1 15.5 oz can kidney beans, rinsed
1 medium sweet potato, peeled and chopped into 1/2 inch pieces
2-3 chicken breasts

Here's what you do:
1. Combine the red onion, chili powder, ground cumin, cocoa powder, ground cinnamon, tomatoes, black beans, kidney beans, sweet potato, uncooked chicken, and 1 cup of water into a 4-6 oz slow cooker.
2. Cook on high heat for 4-5 hours or low heat for 7-8 hours. Cook until the sweet potatoes are tender. I cooked mine on low heat for around 7.5 hours and it was perfect!
Enjoy and stay warm!
