Course: Dinner
Cook Time: 1 hour
Servings: 5


  • 1 Tbsp. canola oil or olive oil
  • 1 large onion (small diced)
  • 4 cups sweet potato, unpeeled (diced into 3/4-inch cubes)
  • 3-4 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 can chipotle pepper in adobo (chopped finely)
  • 1 Tbsp. ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp, black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. ground chili powder


  • Heat oil in a Dutch oven or a large pot. Sauté onion for a few minutes, then add sweet potato and garlic. Keep sautéing until the onions are translucent, about 8-10 minutes.
  • Add chipotle in adobo, cumin, chili powder, paprika and black pepper. Heat until the spices are very fragrant. Add tomatoes, beans and 1 cup vegetable broth.
  • When broth is bubbling, reduce to a simmer and cook for approximately 30-35 minutes, or until the sweet potatoes are tender. Season to taste with salt. Add remaining stock or water if needed to achieve desired consistency.
  • Allow chili to rest about 20 minutes so the flavors can meld.
  • To serve, top bowl with fresh avocado slices and green onions.



Try subbing butternut or acorn squash for sweet potato.
