Then, wrap the sweet potatoes individually, pour the chili into a container and cover, and store all in the refrigerator. To serve, reheat the chili over medium heat, cooking until the chili has warmed throughout and reheat the sweet potato in the oven until warmed throughout. Then serve as included in the recipe instructions.
Prepare the chili as directed. Allow to cool completely and store in freezer-safe containers for up to 3 months. To serve, thaw in the refrigerator overnight and then reheat over medium heat in a Dutch oven or large saucepan until heated throughout. Serve with sweet potatoes as included in the recipe instructions.
