Tyler and I have been down ALL week with a terrible nasty cold and I have not had it in me to cook at all. However, after a couple of days of various take out, I NEEDED something homemade. But easy to make.
This chili was perfect for my sick, tired body because it was warm and homemade and so easy. I pretty much threw everything in a pot and let it simmer until everything was soft. And that was it!
You will need:
- 1 medium sweet potato, peeled and diced
- 1/2 yellow onion, diced
- 1/2 C frozen corn
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 2 Tbls chili powder
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- Salt and pepper to flavor
- 1 1/2 C chicken broth
- 15 oz can black beans
- 8 oz tomato sauce
- 6 oz tomato paste
- 4 tsp lime juice
- *optional: crushed red pepper for spice
Stir everything into a large pot on stove top. Heat on medium-high heat, stirring occasionally until soup boils. Then cover and lower heat to medium-low. Let simmer for an hour, or until potatoes are soft, stirring occasionally so that the chili doesn’t burn to bottom of pan.
Serve with cheese, sour cream, avocado, chips, and/or cilantro and enjoy!
