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.

"I loved this recipe! I added smoked paprika and a little extra ground chipotle. I also added cheddar cheese on top. I took it for lunch today on top of brown rice and it is very good! It was a little sweet, so next time, to combat the...

Very delicious

This recipe turned out really delicious. Must try!!

Easy to make, easy to find ingredients

I absolutely loved this dish, it was easy and quick to make. The flavors were fantastic. Next time I will double the recipe and freeze some...if it lasts. 5 Stars from me *****

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!

doubled recipe and added one can crushed fire roasted tomatoes. absolutely delicious.

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!
