  • 1/2 white onion - finely chopped
  • 1 red bell peppers - rib and seeds removed, chopped
  • 1 28 oz. can of chopped organic canned tomatoes
  • 1 14 oz can of crushed organic canned tomatoes
  • 2 cups water

  • Chop onion and red bell pepper.
  • Place a large soup pot over medium heat. Spray with nonstick spray (coconut oil) and add onion and red bell pepper. Stir occasionally, allowing the onion to become translucent, about 5 minutes.

  • After about 5 minutes of cooking, add the chopped and diced canned tomatoes to the pot. Add the chili powder, cumin and paprika, stir and cover over medium heat.

  • Once the sweet potatoes are fork tender, the chili is ready to eat! The total cooking time is usually about 25 minutes.
