Chili with a sweet side? Bring it on. Blogger flyzipper (which, we assume, has nothing to do with food, but let's just stop there) turns up the heat in this vegetarian chili with jalapeños and hot banana peppers, but balances it with sweet potatoes, red bell peppers, and adzuki beans (as well as black beans). Adzuki are the mellow-flavored red beans used well in Asian foods, such as the sweet and sticky daifuku mochi (rice cakes stuffed with red-bean paste).
