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.

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!
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
Easy & delicious!

To save time, I just threw all the ingredients in the slow cooker on low and left it for eight hours. The potato was a little too soft (my fault) but this was so tasty! Even my husband, who likes meat with every meal, requested this one again.

This was wonderful.

My husband and I loved this. I made it according to the recipe with the exception of using beef broth rather than water. I may have used a bit more chipotle pepper than called for as we like it spicy. I garnished our bowls with diced avocado, which complemented the flavors beautifully.

made enough for two large bowls
