Pinterest Recipe

When it was time to go grocery shopping last week I went right to my food board on pinterest and picked out 5 recipes to create.  The first one I decided to try was the slow cooker sweet potato chili.  The recipe comes from the blog can you stay for dinner.  You can find the entire recipe along with ingredient's on her blog. 

The picture that won my taste buds over:

My before & after pictures:

Here's what I changed up instead of purchasing all of those spices I purchased a chili packet that I have used before for my traditional chili. Its $1.99 which saved a lot of $.   I used 1/2 of an medium onion and 1/2 a clove of garlic.  Only because the crock pot was full.  I would suggest adding more brown sugar for a sweeter taste.  The directions say on low in the crock pot for 10 hours.  Thats way too much time so I did 2 hours on high and then 2 hours on low, stirring often.  It turned out great!  I added shredded cheese on top with bread & butter and it was perfect!  Have you created a pinterest recipe lately?
