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

Wash produce before use


Start the chili

  • Peel and coarsely chop the onion. 
  • Scrub or peel the sweet potato. Cut the potato into ½-inch pieces. 

In a large sauce pot over medium heat, warm 2 to 3 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the onion and sweet potato, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is translucent and the potato starts to soften, 5 to 8 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the black beans.


Prep the beans; finish the chili

  • In a small bowl or cup, mix the vegetable broth concentrate with 1 cup [2 cups] warm water and stir to combine.
  • Rinse the black beans. 

To the pot with the onion and sweet potato, stir in the chili spice blend and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the black beans, tomatoes, vegetable broth, and ½ cup [1 cup] water and season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the chili thickens slightly and the onion and potato are tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.

When the chili is almost done, prepare the garnishes.


Prep the garnishes

  • Cut the avocado in half lengthwise. Remove the pit, scoop out the flesh, and cut the flesh into ¼-inch-thick slices. 
  • Coarsely chop the cilantro. 


Transfer the chili to individual bowls. Garnish with the avocado and cilantro and serve.
