Sweet Potato & Black Bean Chili for Two

EatingWell Serves Two

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (150 votes)

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.

We really enjoyed this - it was super easy without all the veggies to cut that some other non-meat chili recipes call for and the flavors were great. Of course, I realized I was out of cumin at the 11th hour, so just used some extra chili powder. Sprinkled some sour cream and lowfat cheddar on top and served with cornbread and oven-roasted potatoes. I resisted the urge to add some frozen corn or carrots. Made a decent meal for two, but would likely double it if I made it again.

My husband and I totally loved this recipe. It was super easy to make and delicious. I didn't have any chipotle chili so I left it out and it still tasted great - although next time I will definitely add that heat.

I liked this dish. It was lacking a certain flavor though...I added some brown sugar and that helped, but I think next time in addition to a dash of brown sugar I may use beef broth rather than water and/or chili ready diced tomatoes rather than plain. I thought it was a hearty, filling meal - and a good, new way to eat sweet potatoes.

I have not made this yet, but am eager to. I plan to use chicken stock in place of water, as I don't eat tomatoes and know it is going to need some added flavor. Seems pretty versatile: could be eaten alone, a healthy breakfast, wrapped in a corn tortilla. Two great superfoods, can not really beat that!!!

This was very tasty and a great vegetarian alternative to meat chili. I did substitute vegetable broth for the water. I will definately make this again.
