This chili also features a unique ingredient: peanut butter. In fact, maybe we should rename this dish Peanut Butter Sweet Potato Bean Chili. It is inspired by authentic African soups like this delightful one from Nanaaba’s Kitchen. If you like creative recipes and love surprising your dinner guests, make this!

Peanut butter and sweet potato actually co-star in this sweet potato bean chili recipe. The rich peanut butter with its sweetness, pairs perfectly with the starchy potatoes and beans. As a result, the ingredients combine and flavors meld to deliver a creaminess that is addictive and so comforting to consume.

Sweet Potatoes

As always, you can always adjust the spiciness by changing up certain ingredients. In this case, it’s the jalapenos and curry paste bringing on the heat. Ask any of my closest cohorts and relatives what “the best soup ever” is. They will almost uniformly point to this one. While this sweet potato bean chili recipe not a state fair winner (yet =), it should be!

Peanut Butter S’more No Bake Cookies

These Peanut Butter S’more No Bake Cookies are a delight to eat and require just 6 ingredients. Plus, they take only a moment to make.

A 12-year-old kid created this recipe, which might be one of the reasons they’re so easy to make. In fact, this is all that goes into them: a peanut butter/corn syrup/sugar mixture, Golden Grahams cereal, white chocolate chips and marshmallows…so 6 ingredients, plus sprinkles.

Ingredients for Peanut Butter S'More No Bake Cookies

Ready in 5 Minutes

Time is on your side with whipping up these blue ribbon winning cookies. You simply melt and mix the peanut butter, corn syrup and sugar together, then stir in the cereal, marshmallows and white chocolate chips. The last of 3 easy steps: drop them onto wax paper. That brings me to my only tip with this recipe. Have your wax paper lined tray(s) ready so you can do all steps at once and quickly. I made 20 larger sized cookies, but you could easily do these in smaller or bite-size portions and get 30-40 cookies out of them.

You are going to love the texture of these Peanut Butter S’more No Bake Cookies. You get a chewy crunch with every bite. That’s what I like most about these perhaps. That and the “peanut buttery-ness” (which I don’t think is a word, but if the shoe fits.) So yeah, I confess. I couldn’t stop pulling off bits and popping it in my mouth before these had even cooled off at all. Enjoy my fellow peanut butter lovers!
