Stepped Up Chili Night
Recipe by Jenna Kanuck, P.S. Flavor!™ Spice Girl
Celebrate National Chili Day all year long. Around here that’s a pretty big deal because we LOVE chili. Maybe you are competing in a chili cook off, maybe you just love chili, or perhaps you are simply looking for a hearty and easy weeknight dinner. Whether you consider yourself a novice in the kitchen or a chili connoisseur, this Sweet Potato and Black Bean Mocha Chili is sure to delight. Smokey and a little bit spicy, the P.S. Flavor!™ Mocha Chili complements the sweet potatoes nicely while delivering just the right amount of kick.
Sweet Potato and Black Bean Mocha Chili
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 yellow bell pepper, diced
1 medium yellow onion, diced
3 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
2 tablespoons P.S. Flavor!™ Mocha Chili
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 cans fire roasted diced tomatoes
3 1/2 cups water
1 1/2 tablespoons adobo sauce (add more for more heat) from a can of Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce
2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed
1 1/2 teaspoons P.S. Flavor!™ Creole Kitchen
Place a large pot or dutch oven on high heat; add olive oil and then the diced bell pepper and onion to the hot oil and sauté for about 7 minutes, until translucent. Next, add the sweet potato and P.S. Flavor™ Mocha Chili and continue sautéing for an additional 4-5 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté for 1 more minute.
Pour in the tomatoes with their juice and the water. Stir in 1 ½ (or more) tablespoons of the adobo sauce and bring the whole mixture to a boil. Let boil for 3-5 minutes and then turn the heat down to a simmer.
Stir in the black beans. Season with P.S. Flavor!™ Creole Kitchen. Allow mixture to simmer for an hour. Garnish with your favorite chili topping. We recommend sour cream or plain Greek yogurt (unless you want to prepare this as a vegan recipe), sliced avocado, pepitas, and cilantro.
