Description

Healthy & hearty chili made with sweet potatoes, quinoa, black beans and smokey southwestern flavors. Can be ready in under 20 minutes, is vegan and gluten free.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon light flavor cooking oil (olive, avocado or canola oil works)
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 large sweet potatoes, cubed
  • 1.5 tablespoons of chili powder
  • 4 teaspoons of ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon of smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3.5 cups of water
  • 1 cup quinoa (uncooked)
  • 2 15oz cans of black beans, drained
  • 1 15oz can of fire-roasted tomatoes
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Garnishes: Sliced Avocado, sour cream or greek yogurt, cilantro or crushed tortilla chips

Instructions

  1. Turn instant pot to SAUTE setting and place garlic and diced onion in the pot. Once fragrant, add in sweet potatoes, spices and salt, stirring to combine.
  2. Pour water into pot and add quinoa and mix so that the quinoa isn’t sitting on top of the water.
  3. Close the instant pot lid, press the MANUAL button and set the time for 3 minutes. The instant pot will begin to build pressure. Make sure the dial on top is turned to SEALING.
  4. After the pressure builds and 3 minutes are up (the instant pot will beep) you can move the dial on top to VENTING. Allow the instant pot to fully release the pressure before opening the lid.
  5. Once the lid is open, stir and add in the remaining ingredients.

Stove top: Same order and steps but cooking times will vary.  Crockpot: Place all ingredients in crockpot and cook on high for 3-4 hours or low for 6-7 hours.
