Sweet Potato & Black Bean Chili




  1. Heat oil in a large soup pot over medium-high heat.  Add sweet potato and onion--cook, stirring often until the onion begins to soften (about four minutes).
  2. Add garlic, chili powder, cumin, chipotle and salt. Cook, stirring constantly, for thirty seconds.  Add water and bring to a simmer.  Cover, reduce heat to maintain a gentle simmer and cook until the sweet potato is tender, about 10-12 minutes.
  3. Add beans, tomatoes and lime juice.  Increase heat to high and return to a simmer, stirring often.  Reduce heat and simmer until slightly reduced, about five minutes.  Remove from heat and stir in cilantro if desired.
