We recently received the following comment on the Kaiser Permanente Facebook page from Sherry-Ann in Hawaii:
This past Thursday night, Kaiser Hospital on Oahu, Hawaii was serving SWEET POTATO CHILI for dinner. I was there because I needed to go to the after-hours care clinic. I just had to try some, along with their steamed vegetables... IT WAS DELICIOUS! I wish I could get the recipe.
Well, we tracked it down for Sherry-Ann and we're sharing it here. Thank you to the Food & Nutrition Services department at Kaiser Permanente Moanalua Medical Center for sharing your recipe!
