Sweet Potato Black Bean Chilli

Author: Kathy Smart, RHN | August 21, 2018

The secret ingredient in this chili? It is cacao powder. There is a subtle bass note in this recipe with a hint of earthiness and unique flavour. It’s genius really!

Sweet Potato Black Bean Chilli



  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large red onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon each of chili powder, ground cumin, and Organika Maca + Cacao powder
  • 1 tablespoon fresh garlic, peeled and chopped
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • 3 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 16-ounce jar salsa (I prefer the hot)
  • 1 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 4 teaspoons of Organika bone broth mixed with 4 cups of water


  • Place the olive oil and diced onion in a pot and saute. Add the sweet potato and all of the spices and cook for about 5 minutes.
  • Next, add in the rest of the ingredients and bring to a boil over medium heat and then lower to a simmer and cook for about 30 minutes.
  • Serve the chili with fresh cilantro, avocado, a squeeze of fresh lime and tortilla chips.
