Earthy sweet potatoes add depth to this vegetarian chili. New Mexico chile powder is fruity and mild, so don't be scared off by the generous amount called for here. Feel free to swap in any other kind of chile powder you have on hand--just use less of it.

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oil in a medium pot over medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic, bell pepper, and sweet potatoes and cook, stirring, until vegetables soften, about 5 minutes. Add New Mexico and chipotle chile powders, cumin, and coriander and cook until spices are fragrant, about 10 seconds. Stir in beans and broth and partially cover. Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, until sweet potatoes are soft and chili is slightly thickened, about 15 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
