Is that measurement for the chili powder a typo? I cut way back and it was still too overpowering. Otherwise, this is a good combination of ingredients and makes a nice one-dish meal.
Black Bean and Sweet Potato Chili

Probably my favorite meatless chili to date-- an interesting combination of flavors with a nice little spicy kick! I made a half recipe, since there were just the two of us... halved everything except the tomatoes (used a whole can). We enjoyed it served over brown rice, and then added some frozen corn to left-overs for a little bit of sweet crunch to compliment the black beans.

I made this recipe pretty much as written - the only real change was throwing in a handful of corn towards the end, as another reviewer suggested. Oh, and don't be afraid of trying fire-roasted tomatoes instead of the plain ol' regular diceys. They were yummy. Served over cilantro'd rice with cheese and green onions = hearty, flavorful, and delicious! Who knew sweet potatoes could be so melt-in-your-mouth tasty? Can't wait for my leftovers tomorrow.

I have made this recipe many times in the past year. It's always a favorite, and wins over the meatless chili skeptics. My only change is to substitute two cans of Rotel for the diced tomatoes and jalapenos. We eat it like traditional chili, with shredded cheese and a dollop of sour cream. Delicious!

This is a great go-to recipe that makes a huge batch so there are lots of leftovers, which is perfect because it's even better the next day. I love that it's vegetarian and super healthy, and I make it all the time. However, I agree with a previous reviewer that the recipe as written is way too spicy. I use one jalapeno only and 1 tablespoon of chili powder, and serve with cornmeal muffins.
