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...

Absolutely Delicious

Really really good! Easy and quick to make, and the leftovers saved really well! A bit too much lime for my taste, but no complaints, will definitely make this a routine for meatless Mondays. If you're not a wimp like me, you'll probably want it a bit spicier, the sweet potato really calms it down, but for you other mild food eaters, its the perfect chili!

Easy, cheap, tasty, quick
Good and Healthy

My husband and I thought this was really good. I only added half an onion (because I don't like onions but can't deny they add good flavor) and the canned tomatoes I used had green pepper and garlic with it. I didn't have chipotle so I just eyeballed some paprika. The sweetness from the sweet potato and spice from chili pepper worked wonderfully :) I'm debating on making this again only because I'm picky about dishes that have alot of onions in it..but I guess I can leave them out next time. Also, I had to drain it a little towards the end cause it had a little more liquid left than I wanted.

cheap, flavorful, super healthy
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!
