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

Wash produce before use


Prep the vegetables

  • Peel and finely chop enough shallots to measure ¼ cup [½ cup].
  • Scrub or peel the sweet potato; cut the potato into ½-inch pieces.
  • Remove the stem, ribs, and seeds from the bell pepper; cut the pepper into ½-inch pieces.


Prep your protein

  • Ground meat (including plant based): Cut a small corner from the ground meat packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.
  • Tofu: Pat the tofu dry with paper towels; crumble or cut into ½-inch pieces.


Start cooking your protein

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 if using, until the protein is lightly browned but not yet cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate.


Cook the chili

In the same pot used for your protein, add the shallots and sweet potato, season with salt and pepper, and cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables start to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the chili spice blend and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. 

Add your protein, bell pepper, tomato sauce, and 2 cups [3 cups] water. Season with salt and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until your protein is cooked through, the vegetables are tender, and the chili has thickened, 15 to 18 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. When the chili is almost done, prepare the cabbage slaw.


Make the cabbage slaw

  • Cut away any core from the cabbage; thinly slice the cabbage.
  • Coarsely chop the cilantro; set aside half for garnish.

In a large bowl, toss together the cabbage, 2 teaspoons [4 tsp] oil, half the apple cider vinegar, and half the cilantro. Season to taste with salt and pepper and more vinegar, if desired.


Transfer the chili to individual bowls. Garnish with the remaining cilantro and as much cabbage slaw as you like. Serve any remaining slaw on the side.
