Quinoa Sweet Potato Black Bean Chili is a chipotle seasoned, black bean chili made with sweet potatoes, quinoa, and sweet corn. It’s a carnivore-approved vegan chili with tons of flavor! It’s quick, easy, and perfect for busy weeknights.
Quinoa Sweet Potato Black Bean Chili
There’s a reason we’ve seen black beans and sweet potatoes go a little viral over the past few years.
Quite simply, they rock, especially in black bean chili.
If ever there were two ingredients meant to be together, it’s definitely those two!
It’s no surprise that this is one of my favorite, cold-weather, vegan chilis.
If you have a crockpot, this black bean chili only takes 60 minutes to slow cook, or 30 minutes on the stove.
The smaller you dice the sweet potatoes, the quicker they cook.
Do not slow cook this chili more than 1 hour because the sweet potatoes and quinoa disintegrate.
Quinoa doesn’t require much cooking time, which makes this recipe perfect for a busy, weeknight.
