Sweet Potato & Black Bean Chili

January/February 2011

Your rating: None Average: 4 (748 votes)

Make a double batch of this quick vegetarian chili, full of black beans and sweet potatoes, and eat it for lunch the next day or freeze the extras for another night. We love the smoky heat from the ground chipotle, but omit it if you prefer a mild chili. Serve with tortilla chips or cornbread and coleslaw.

Fabulous (with changes)

I nuked the sweet potatoes to speed things up; 6-8 minutes. I subbed broth for water. Added 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp cocoa powder, 1/3 c brown sugar, 4-oz green chilis. More cumin, less chili powder.

Gluten & dairy free!
Great Vegetarian dish my family loved it

Love Love this dish with make it again and again


I didn't have the chipotle chili pepper so i used red cayenne pepper instead and I still achieved that great heat I was hoping for. Excellent dish, will definitely make it again.

Great Veggie Entree

I was looking for a recipe that incorporated sweet potatoes and this is a winner. If you dont like spicy then I advise using a smaller amount of spices. I used one can black and once can Pinto beans and it was great. I substituted cayenne for chipotle and parsley for cilantro. Will def be making this again!

Fast, Easy Full of Vitamins!
Sweet & spicy, good & good-for-you chili

I substituted Fat Free Chicken broth for the water, halved the spices (as indicated above), used leftover maple roasted sweet potatoes from Thanksgiving....OMG, so delicious!

quick, easy & fabulous!
