Sweet Potato+Quinoa+Black Bean Chili
We came across an amazing recipe and wanted to share if with you. Really nice for these short days and cold evenings. A simple recipe that calls for you to throw the ingredients in a crock pot and put it on low for 4-6 hours. This recipe is vegetarian, but I think putting some meat in would be great and tasty.
Let us know what you think, enjoy!
3 cups diced sweet potato (about 1 large)
1 cup diced red onion (about 1 medium)
1 cup diced bell peppers (about 1 large)
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 (15 oz) can organic black beans
1 (28 oz) can of fire roasted tomatoes
3 – 4 cups vegetable broth
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1/2 cup uncooked quinoa
1 – 1 1/2 tablespoons chili powder
2 teaspoons cumin
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon coriander
1/2 teaspoon cayenne (more or less to taste)
Salt & pepper to taste
Add all ingredients into a crock pot (starting with just 3 cups of broth). Turn on high and cook for 4 hours, turn down to low and continue to cook until ready to serve. If too thick, stir in another ½ – 1 cup of water.
Serve with diced avocado (or guac) and tortilla chips. It’s such a good combo!
