A Chili Recipe with Plenty of Potassium

Potassium Recipe

The two main types of ingredients that contain potassium are potatoes and beans. So what can you make with both? Chili of course. I have below a recipe for a two bean and sweet potato chili that has a whopping 511mg of potassium per serving. That helps you get to the amount you need for the day pretty quickly. It also tastes great too! Let me know in the comments below if you made it an how it turned out!
