Crockpot Sweet Potato & Black Bean Quinoa Chili

Posted on

Try this healthy, vegetarian quinoa chili with chunky sweet potatoes and hearty sweet potatoes. The best part? It’s made in a slower cooker, so it’s easy and mostly hands-off!

 

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  1. 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.
  2. Serve with diced avocado (or guac) and tortilla chips. It’s such a good combo!

Recipe Notes

For those looking to make this in a dutch oven, cut the liquid in half and cook it at 300ºF for two hours
