Ingredients

  • 1 medium red onion chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper chopped
  • 1 cup frozen corn optional
  • 4 garlic cloves chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • One 28-ounce can fire-roasted diced tomatoes
  • One 15.5-ounce can black beans drained and rinsed
  • One 15.5-ounce can kidney beans drained and rinsed

  • For garnish: sour cream, sliced scallions, shredded cheese or tortilla chips

Instructions

  • In a 4 to 6-quart slow cooker, combine the onion, bell pepper, frozen corn, garlic, chili powder, cumin, cocoa, cinnamon, salt and black pepper. Add the tomatoes (and their liquid), beans, sweet potato, and 1 cup water.
  • Cover and cook until the sweet potatoes are tender and the chili has thickened, on low for 7 to 8 hours or on high for 4 to 5 hours (this will shorten total recipe time).
