Tell me if you’ve ever had this happen– you see a stranger, someone you’ve never seen before and then suddenly you notice this person all over the place? I’ve been feeling this way about sweet potatoes lately. Sweet potatoes and I used to be basically strangers. We’d have them with dinner a few times throughout the year at my mother in law’s house. Then, suddenly I saw them everywhere and they looked darn good. I decided to give sweet potatoes another chance, a real chance beyond ho-hum Thanksgiving treatment and it turns out I really misjudged them. Sweet-Potato-Sweet-Chili-Bowls-3

My new favorite way to eat sweet potatoes is in these sweet potato sweet chili bowls.  Lately I’ve been all over the “bowl” thing as you might have noticed since I just posted my Hoppin’ John bowl recipe last week. But judging from the responses I got from you guys, I think you’re loving them too and there are so many reasons for them to be loved.Sweet Potato-Sweet-Chili-Bowls-4

1) They are super quick and simple to make.

2) They incorporate lots of rice and veggies, which I love, that make them healthy and filling.

3) They are great for meal prepping and packing.

These sweet potato sweet chili bowls make a great vegetarian meal that even my meat loving boys enjoy and they are on the table in a flash.

Hahaha! I gotta say, I sure am glad I stumbled on here through FBC – What a fantastic segue! While sweet potatoes are not strangers to me – I do keep noticing this fella almost every where I go – don’t know if at all – but he pops up at Starbucks, the grocery store, the post office…crazy!
By the way, this sounds absolutely delicious – I thought I had a big enough breakfast that I could skip lunch but not after seeing these bowls!
