Chipotle-kissed Red Beans and Sweet Potato Chili

No, I’m not done with the bowls but I did save some other posts to break them up a bit so it wasn’t bowl, bowl, bowl, bowl, bowl….

Slow cookers are awesome if you don’t know that already. You can turn dried beans into a big pile of mouth-watering bits to eat as is or freeze in batches to use in recipes. All without pot watching. Nothing better than getting home from work to find your kitchen already smells delicious.

This one is Chipotle-kissed Red Beans and Sweet Potato Chili from Robin Robertson’s Fresh From the Vegetarian Slow Cooker. Look at that color! If you follow the recipe it’s pretty mild, so punch up the hot stuff if you like to feel the burn. And there’s only a little bit of oil in the whole pot so it’s pretty much just a bowl of goodness. Not pictured: unhealthy bread or corn bread slathered with Earth Balance.




  1. What a beautiful chili! That's a recipe I've browsed through and passed over many times but seeing it above, I can't think of why.

    And you're so right. Slow cookers are magical. I need to use mine more.

      sometimes recipes strike you and sometimes they don't. one thing I didn't mention in the post is that this is a cheap recipe to make, especially during sweet potato season.

  2. So bright and colorful! Love the sweet potato chunks swiming around in the chili.
