We're vegans so I tend to make a lot of chili-type dishes and this was probably my favorite. It was more sweet than spicy because of the sweet potatoes but that was what made it so great. I made this for a potluck that we were having at our home this past weekend but forgot to mention to our guests that it was in the crockpot in the kitchen so no one ate it. Turned out that that was a bonus because my family got to eat it all! I will definitely be making it again.
Sweet Potato & Black Bean Chili for Two
From EatingWell: 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.

Pretty good but not very exciting. Served it over yellow rice and it made twice as many servings as the recipe said. My only changes were to double it and to add a heaping teaspoon of smoked paprika. Changes I would make if I cooked it again would be to use much more chili powder (or crumbled dried chilies) and to use a yam instead of a sweet potato, which was pretty bland. Easy and filling though.
We made this dish for dinner tonight and served it over yellow rice as one of the reviewers suggested. It was delicious. My husband and I both loved it. We made it exactly as the recipe says excpet We used a can of diced tomatoes with green chilis, which gave it a bit of a kick. Put most of the Cilantro in during the cooking process. We served it as I said, over yellow rice , a dollop of reduced fat sour cream and garnished with fresh cilantro. We will defintely make this again. We doubled the recipe and my husband has already had some of the leftovers in a four tortilla rolled up with some fat free cheddar cheese. It is a keeper. Very , very Good and tasty. Enjoyed it very much!
I made this last night for dinner and it was delicious! i didn't have any chipotle pepper so i left that out and doubled the chili powder. I served it over yellow rice. I can't wait to have the leftovers for lunch!
I made this chili yesterday, and it was a hit! I was glad to find a new way to use sweet potatoes. I made the chili as instructed except I replaced water with vegetable broth. The subtle sweetness and heat complement each other so well. All ingredients are healthy, filling, and budget friendly. Looking forward to taking this with me to work this week!
