Sweet Potato Chili

Good Morning! It's Secret Recipe Time! I'm so thankful for this club this month.  As you can see, it's the only thing keeping my blog going right now. But more on that later...

Right now let me introduce Judee from Gluten Free A-Z Blog! Judee has great recipes, and it was really hard to pick just one. Then, she posted this chili. The somewhat odd combinations of ingredients intrigued me. Especially since I could make it in my crockpot. An easy, but extremely flavorful dish? One that cooks without any supervision? I'll take it!

The only change I would make next time is to add 1-2 teas. Cayenne or Chili powder. This chili is on the sweet side.

Sweet Potato Chili

Adapted from Gluten Free A-Z

1 medium red pepper, seeded and chopped
1 28 ounce can of fire roasted tomatoes (find the fire-roasted, they are so good!)
16 oz black beans
16 oz kidney beans, drained
1 large sweet potato (I actually used 1 1/2), cubed
1-2 teas cayenne pepper
1 Tb ground cumin
2 teas unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teas ground cinnamon
Salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients in the crockpot and stir well.  Cook on low for 7-8 hours, or on high for 4 until potatoes are cooked through. Serve with a dollop of sour cream and cheese.



  1. It looks really lovely. Perfect for this time of year.

  2. Sounds great I made pumpkin chili once - I bet the flavor is similar.

  3. Glad you found a recipe you liked. I'm a crock pot lover too ..

  4. Oooh, I bet I'd love that, even as is (on the sweet side...) - the pictures look so appetizing. Great choice!

  5. This looks delicious. Hubby might not love this but I so would!!

  6. Yum! Three of my favorite fall things: sweet potatoes, chili, and my crock pot. :) Sounds delicious.

  7. I love making chili's and this version sounds fabulous. Love that little addition of cocoa.
