Briana's Chipotle Sweet Potato Chowda



As you may already know, I live in a big ol' house with lots of my friends. Lately we have been cooking a lot together and are constantly looking for recipes to feed a crowd. Last week my roommate of 4 years, Briana and I decided to cook some hearty dishes. Briana came up with this delicious, spicy and hearty chowder. This stick to your bones stew is vegan (without yogurt garnish) and satisfies all cravings for flavorful and nummy goodness. Stay tuned for my Root Vegetable Gratinée!
