Sweet Potato Chili

by Gavan on January 30, 2012

Superbowl Sunday’s coming up so a day of copious amounts of food and drink is probably on the cards. I’d imagine the last place you want to be during the game is actually in the kitchen cooking so here’s your meal ticket. You can’t beat the one pot meal. This’ll definitely do the trick.

If you still need a few ideas of what to cook here you go.

RECIPE:
Makes 4 bowls-ish

1 lg. red pepper – halved, seeds removed, large dice
1 white onion – diced
2 lg or 3 medium sweet potatoes – large dice
3 garlic cloves – minced
2 tbsp chilli powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 x 15 oz cans hominy – drained & rinsed
2 quarts (8 cups) vegetable broth
3 tbsp olive oil
S&P

DIRECTIONS:
Preheat large soup pot on medium heat. Drizzle olive oil. Add peppers, onions, garlic and saute for 5 minutes, stirring. Sprinkle in a tsp salt. Add spices and potatoes. Combine. Cook for another 3-4 minutes.

NOTE: You want to cook the spices a little before adding the broth to intensify their flavor.

Add broth. Bring to a boil and reduce to simmer. Partially cover with lid. Cook for 20 minutes. Add hominy and continue to simmer for another 30 mins.
Taste and season as necessary.

Garnish with avocado, fat-free Greek yogurt, fresh cilantro, even fresh lime zest would be awesome.

Happy days!

All recipes are made with the finest quality farmers’ market whole foods, natural and non-processed ingredients.
