EatingWell Serves Two

A rich, dark and flavorful combination of our favorite Southwestern flavors. It also doesn't hurt that sweet potatoes and black beans both make the cut as superfoods. Serve with some warmed corn tortillas and Orange & Avocado Salad.

Very tasty!!

I am a single gal who is transitioning from a light meat eater (chicken, fish) to a vegetarian lifestyle, so this meat free chili for 2 was the perfect recipe for me. I love that it doesn't need meat to maintain that hearty, chili feel.

I stuck with the general idea of the recipe, but I didn't have several ingredients so I ended up tweaking it quite a bit. First, I didn't have chipotle powder. I did have a can 7.76 oz can of chipotle SAUCE (no peppers, just the sauce), of which I poured in about half. It has vinegar in it so I omitted the lime juice, but it was still a little on the tart side to I tossed a couple of dashes of sugar in. Also, the chipotle sauce has so much flavor I didn't use as much cumin. (I eyeballed it) I didn't have any cilantro either, so served it up by candlelight (romantic dinner with myself, haha) with a little bit of sliced green onion on top over some brown rice. Even with all the modifications, YUM. And even better, I had plenty of leftovers for lunch at work tomorrow.

Easy, cheap, and fast!

The kiddos loved it!

I personally would give this a 4*, (which is still great!), but since my 2 & 3 yr olds ate it so good it definitely must be upped to a 5*! I followed some reviewers & used beef broth instead of water & left the skin on the sw' pot's. I added a little extra minced garlic & diced tomatoes. Used "Mrs. Dash Southwest Chipotle" seasoning for the ground chipotle & kidney beans instead of black beans, (b/c that's what I had). It really is a good & very healthy recipe....nice change from basic chili. Will def' make it again.

The kids loved it & it's very healthy...."Superfood" chili!

Great chili- with a few tweaks

I read a lot of the reviews before I made this and used some of their changes. I left the skin on the sweet potato- it saved time and its good for you. I also used beef broth instead of water. Instead of dried chipotle, I got the chipotle chiles in adobe sauce- I diced up a couple of them (I like it spicy!) and used some of the sauce. I added 2 tbsp of tomato paste to thicken it. I also used one can of kidney beans instead of 2 cans of black beans (it's what I had in my pantry). I only used half of the cumin (I don't like that much cumin) and probably a little extra of chili powder. I omitted the lime juice because I didn't have any. I made cornbread to go with it and just had it for lunch- delicious! Good alternative to the chili I usually make. Will make again. :)

easy, healthy, filling
