  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 medium sweet potato
  • 30 ounce black beans, canned
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin, ground
  • 3 cup chicken broth, low-sodium
  • 28 ounce diced tomatoes, canned
  • 1 medium orange
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper, ground
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 stalk green onion

Serve With

  • 6 slice bread, whole wheat
  • 2 tablespoon butter, unsalted
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 6 medium apple


  • Heat oil in a Dutch oven or a large saucepan over medium heat.
  • Dice onion and add to the saucepan; cook about 5 minutes until softened, stirring frequently.
  • Meanwhile, chop sweet potatoes into bite-size pieces, and drain and rinse the black beans. Set aside separately.
  • Add the chili powder and cumin to the onion, then add the broth and sweet potatoes; stir well to combine.
  • Bring the mixture to a gentle boil, then cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 15 minutes until the potatoes are almost tender.
  • Add undrained tomatoes and black beans; continue to simmer, uncovered, about 15 minutes more until the mixture is heated through and slightly thickened.
  • Zest the orange; stir 2 teaspoons zest into the chili, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • While chili is cooking, preheat oven to Broil.
  • Spread butter evenly onto each slice of bread, then sprinkle with garlic powder and place onto a baking sheet.
  • Place bread under the broiler for 1-2 minutes until golden brown. Watch closely so it does not burn!
  • Serve chili topped with green onions and sour cream as desired; serve toast and apple slices on the side.
