Sweet Potato Black Bean Chili


Sweet Potato Black Bean Chili

– 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and diced

-1 small sweet onion, small diced

-1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced

-1 can organic black beans, rinsed and drained

-1 14 oz can organic fire roasted diced tomatoes, drained

-1.5 C organic veggie broth

-3 garlic cloves, minced

-1 T chili powder

-1 t cumin

-1 t paprika

-pinch cayenne

-1/2 t sea salt

-1 lime (for splash of juice at the end)

Combine all ingredients into a slow cooker (except the lime), sprayed with nonstick spray.


Cook on low for 6-8 hours.


If you’d like to add meat –I did this for the pilot-, bake an organic chicken breast seasoned with sea salt, pepper, and chili powder, dice and put into his bowl.

Add chili and FEAST 😀

    Wooo! This is one of my all-time favorite recipes and maybe one of the only reasons I enjoy cold weather. Making it for the bazillionth time right now. I added quinoa today and can’t wait for it to be ready!

    Could I put this in a insta pot pressure cooker? What setting would I use? Soup?
