Sweet Potato & Quinoa Chili with Cinnamon

A vegetarian chili that’s sure to warm you from head to toe. Sweet potatoes, quinoa, black beans and just the right amount of spice! Hearty enough as is, but if your meat-eater insists, adding ground turkey to this is yummy too. A thank you Kathleen for this recipe!
