Sweet Potato & Black Bean Chili

January/February 2011

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (625 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.

Awful

Why do so many people like this? No one in my family liked this. Mixing sweet potatoes with sour diced tomatoes just did not cut it with my family. I thought this was just awful. The recipe i used called for orange zest which just added to the already disgusting taste. And we LOVE chile and we LOVE sweet potatoes. BUT we did not love this combination,

This recipe doesn't call for

This recipe doesn't call for orange zest. Your review is misleading.

I used two canned chipotle peppers instead of the ground chipotle. The flavor really complemented the sweet potato. Served over bulgur wheat, this was a tasty and satisfying supper.

First time I made this dish, I followed the recipe as written and found it to be good, but a bit mushy, due to all of the black beans. It was good, but I just didn't love the texture. Second time, I replaced the black beans with cans of organic mixed beans (black, kidney, and pinto) and found it to be much better.

Use Winter Squash Instead

Black beans and Sweet T's can go together fine enough, elsewhere, but not in chili. Tried this recipe as written, but had to change to using winter squash after the first time - preferably something less stringy than pumpkin (think butternut squash.....yum!). Just not sweet potatoes. Thanks for the recipe, though. The spices are spot on! Great with rice and salsa spooned on top, or with tomalita and a touch of queso fresco and/or FF sour cream, or even with corn bread. Add pickled jalapenos to coleslaw, and you've got yourself a feast! Yum!

Seasonings are Spot on!

Just because you don't like

Just because you don't like sweet potatoes doesn't mean everyone doesn't! It was great with the sweet potatoes.
