Even though the weather would have you think it is still summer, we are already weeks into fall and on our merry way to winter. Despite the heat, I'm in full blown "soup mode" and am looking for any excuse to whip some up. To convince myself it is really fall, I made a sweet potato stew packed full of autumn flavor.

With juicy pieces of beef steak and tender sweet potato, this hearty soup is sure to fill you up. A hint of chili for heat and undertones of cinnamon spice really can convince you there is a brisk chill outside.

The longer you let this soup stew, the more developed and delicious the flavors. I recommend at least four hours in the slow cooker, but I've been known to make this stew and leave it roasting overnight, resulting in beef that practically melts in your mouth.
