This week I wanted sweet potato chili. I have to find other alternatives to the fax meat, not only because it is processed and I am trying my best to eat less and less processed foods. But also because my cousin does not like the faux meats. This is the easiest most delicious chili I make. I mean I make a proper chili with meat and the frozen chili brick, but as far as being vegan this is the best.
I used smaller sweet potatoes that I peeled and chopped into semi large chunks. Sweet potatoes are a pain to cut. This particular batch had about 8 small potatoes.
I prefer, at the moment to use canned beans, eventually I will move to cooking my own, but one step at a time. So in this chili I like to add light red kidney beans, navy beans, and black beans.
I also add corn and diced tomatoes. I am a fan of Rotel most of the time, it adds a nice spice and I always keep those on deck. I also used a tomato paste to thicken it up a little.
Seasoning wise, I just grabbed what I think would be good. I don't measure anything and go by sight. In this I used some chili powder, a house seasoning, and a garlic and herb seasoning. I don't really do salt, so I try to use whatever is in the house seasoning and I always buy at least one can of something with salt. Otherwise I mostly look for lower sodium or no salt cans of food.
Enjoy the preparations of the chili and then I like to top mine off with Tofutti, avocado and eat it with tortilla chips. Which I can eat every day. I love chips and salsa.
