2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep the chili ingredients

  • Cut a small corner from the protein packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.
  • Peel and coarsely chop the onion; measure out ¼ cup [½ cup], finely chop, and set aside for garnish. 
  • Scrub or peel the sweet potato. Cut the potato into ½-inch pieces.


Cook the chili

In a large sauce pot over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add your protein, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring and breaking up the ground meat, until the protein is lightly browned but not yet cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the coarsely chopped onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the smoky chili spice blend and as much chipotle chile powder as you like and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. 

Add the sweet potato, tomato sauce, and 1 cup [2 cups] water and season with salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the sweet potato is tender, your protein is cooked through, and the chili has thickened, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. When the chili is almost done, prepare the salad.


Make the salad

  • Peel the cucumber, if desired; cut the cucumber into ½-inch pieces.
  • Coarsely chop the cilantro; set aside half for garnish.

In a large bowl, toss together the cucumber, 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil, half the cilantro, and as much sumac as you like. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the chili to individual bowls and garnish with the finely chopped onion and remaining cilantro. Serve the salad on the side.
