  • 2 tablespoons Fustini’s Cilantro and Onion olive oil
  • tablespoon chili powder of choice

  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika 
  • 4 large garlic cloves, grated
  • 1 small onion, diced

Hint

Adapted from NYT Cooking


Directions

Step 1. 

In a 12 inch skillet over medium heat, heat both olive oils and sauté onion and pepper until translucent, stirring often, about 8 minutes.  Add grated garlic, sauté for about 30 seconds until fragrant.


Step 2. 

In a 6- to an 8-quart slow cooker, combine sautéed vegetables, sweet potatoes, black beans, tomatoes, orange juice, garlic cloves, and dried spices. Stir in 2 teaspoons salt, a generous amount of pepper and 2 cups chicken stock.  Cook on low until the sweet potatoes are tender, about 8 hours. The chili holds well on the warm setting.  Just before serving, stir in the cilantro and let it warm through, about 5 minutes. Taste and add more salt and pepper if necessary. Top with sour cream, guacamole, green onion, and cilantro leaves.  Serve.




Customer Reviews

  1. Tasty, but confusing directions/missing ingredients

    The soup was tasty, but the directions were a little confusing. The ingredients should be listed in order of use. In Step 1, it does not mention using any oils for sautéing the onion and pepper. Additionally the 2 Tablespoons of Chipotle oil and 2 Tablespoons Cilantro and Onion oil (ingredients list) are never used in the directions.
