- Place tin foil on rack in the oven then add potatoes. Bake 35 – 40 minutes or until fork tender turning once after 20 minutes.
- I like to add tin foil under the wire rack and place the potatoes right on the rack. This will make a little mess on the rack.

- Stir in the garlic clove for 1 minute then add the tomatoes and beans; bring to a boil.

- Stir in corn and simmer for 5 more minutes.
- Cut sweet potatoes in half and distribute chili vegetables evenly.
