Black Bean Sweet Potato Chili
2 onions, chopped (I use all organic)
5 cloves garlic, chopped
2-3 tablespoons olive oil
1 large lime (or 2 small), zest and juice (juice divided)
2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped into 1/2" cubes
2 tablespoons mixed spices (I use cumin, chile powder, cinnamon, and cocoa powder)
1/2-1 cup water, as needed
1 (28 ounce) can whole tomatoes, chopped
4 (15 ounce) cans black beans, rinsed
2 (4 ounce) cans diced green chiles
2 chipotle chiles (canned chipotle in adobo sauce), chopped
1 bunch cilantro, chopped leaves
1. Saute garlic and onions in olive oil on low-medium heat untill limp. Add lime zest, sweet potatoes, 1/2 lime juice, and spices and cook covered for 15 minutes (add a little water or olive oil if the mixture starts to stick to the bottom).
2. Add tomatoes, black beans, green chiles, chipotle chiles, and cilantro; cook until sweet potatoes are tender.
3. Add remaining lime juice and more spices to taste if necessary, and simmer covered for 10 minutes, adding more water if needed.
Serve with brown basmati rice and vegan sour cream!!!
