Chipotle Sweet Potato Chili with Black Beans is perfect for a quick weeknight dinner and is dairy-free, gluten-free and vegan! Spicy, delicious and filling!
If you are as obsessed with sweet potatoes as I am, you are going to love this chili!! Who needs meat when you have heart chunks of potato and tasty black beans? Plus, that fire-roasted smoky tomato base with just the right amount of chipotle kick? You are going to love this Chipotle Sweet Potato Chili as a quick weeknight dinner and it’s even great for a Sunday football watching kind of day!
I just got a new dutch oven, and to be honest, I’m kind of obsessed! You may be seeing a lot of recipes to come from this gorgeous pan. If you’re slightly obsessed with the idea of a Le Creuset pan but just don’t want to shell out the bucks, may I recommend a much less expensive but still just as amazing option, a Lodge Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven!
Things you can make in a dutch oven (otherwise known as the things I’ve made so far):
- All kinds of chili (obviously!)
And so much more! Let me know if you want me to share more of my creations here using my dutch oven, or be sure to follow me on Instagram for my behind the scenes recipe creation.
I feel like this chili is one of those that’s perfect for making up a big batch and eating it all week. It seems to get even better the longer it sits because the flavors really just meld together. And since I know I have several Weight Watcher friends following along, I just calculated the points on the new Freestyle Smart Points program and it’s only 2 per serving! I’m thinking lunch prep!!
