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 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!


What a great recipe! I've made this on a couple of occasions, and it continues to be a hit.


Delicious and very easy! I used a whole chipotle pepper in some adobo sauce and it added a bit of smokiness and heat.
