Sweet Potato Black Bean Chili

Author Notes: This recipe is a modified version of a recipe I was given for something easy, cheap, and vegetarian that I could make in my dorm kitchen. It's really great served with rice, you can throw in any vegetables sitting around the kitchen, and it certainly doesn't break my student budget!Jocief
