Crock-Pot Chipotle 4 Bean Veggie Chili with Sweet Potatoes

Nothing is better, in my opinion, on a cold day or night than a hearty bowl of chili! To make it even easier, I cook it in my Crock-Pot. This veggie chili is packed with beans, garlic, peppers, onions, and carrots but I added sweet potatoes, chipotle powder, and cinnamon to top it off! Hearty and delicious with a little sweet and a little spicy kick. Bonus: the aroma in your kitchen while this cooks is mouth-watering! It doesn't get any better than that, y'all!

Ingredients:

  • 15oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 15oz can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
  • 15oz can great northern beans, rinsed and drained
  • 15oz can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 14.5 oz cans tomato sauce
  • 1 14.5oz crushed tomatoes
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced
  • 1/2 red pepper or 4-5 sweet mini peppers, cored and diced
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 sweet potato, peeled and cubed
  • 3 cloves of garlic, pressed
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp chipotle chile powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • salt and pepper, to taste (about 1/2 to 1 tsp each)
Recommended toppings: sliced avocado, shredded cheese, diced onions, and sour cream.
Serve with a side of toasted buttered cheese bread.

Directions:

  1. Add all 4 cans of drained beans to a large Crock-Pot. 
  2. Top with all the chopped veggies.
  3. Finally add tomato sauce, crushed tomatoes, garlic, and spices.
  4. Mix well and cover.
  5. Cook for 8 hours on low.
 
Chop and dice or cube all veggies.
I use 4 different varieties of beans in this recipe. You can use which ever beans you like but I am a fan of these four! Make sure to rinse and drain before adding to the Crock-Pot.
4 types of beans are the base of this tasty veggie chili.
Top with all your chopped veggies.
I love the mix of savory, spicy, and sweet! Chipotle and Cinnamon give this chili a depth of flavor and unexpected aroma and mix of sweet and spice.
Add the tomato sauce, crushed tomato, garlic, and spices.

Mix, cover and cook on low for 8 hours.
Add toppings of your choice and serve with crusty cheese bread for dipping. Enjoy!
