1. Southern Sweet Potato Chowder

Sweet potatoes are easily one of the most delicious starches that you can get your hands on and combining them with a ton of other fresh ingredients surely makes great chowder that the whole family will love.

What You’ll Need:

  • One tablespoon of garlic (minced)

  2. Stir in the garlic, celery, and onion and then cook until all the ingredients are tender. You can then add in the flour and sage, constantly stirring for about two minutes.
  3. Now it’s time to add in the tomatoes, potatoes, and broth, as well as salt and pepper. Allow all the ingredients to come to a boil and then reduce the heat of the stovetop to low and simmer gently until the potatoes become tender.
  4. As the final step, add in the kale and then serve in bowls, topping the chowder off with bacon.

  3. You then add the chicken broth, red pepper, salt, cumin, oregano, chilies, and corn, bringing the mixture to a boil.

  • Salt and pepper (to taste)
  • One cup of green chilies


  1. Brown the ground beef, garlic, peppers, and onion together in your Dutch oven, either over an open flame or on medium to high heat. We recommend avoiding adding extra oil as the fat from the ground beef will act as your base.
  2. Once the ground beef is cooked thoroughly, add in the two cups of beef broth and then throw in the diced tomatoes as well as the tomato sauce.
  3. Continue stirring the mixture until all the ingredients are heated and then add in the uncooked rice, allowing the mixture to simmer until the rice is at the perfect texture.
