Vegetarian Sweet Potato Rice & Bean Chili

This one pot comforting chili is made with riced sweet potato, beans, and all the comforting aromatics and seasonings of a classic chili. 

Vegetarian Sweet Potato Rice & Bean Chili

Riced sweet potato replaces rice in this rice and bean chili, offering more flavor, more nutrients, more color, and a cleaner way to enjoy chili!

Vegetarian Sweet Potato Rice & Bean Chili

We could always use a comforting bowl of something or meal, and this dish is exactly that. It’s hearty, it’s satisfying, it’s tasty, and it’s a fun way to use your Inspiralizer. I also love bean chilis, they’re an easy way to pack in loads of plant based protein and cook from your pantry at the same time!

If you wanted to make a meat version of this, omit the beans or omit just one can of the beans and add in your preferred ground meat – turkey, chicken, or beef.

If you’re not vegan and dairy-free, top this with some grated pepperjack cheeses or a Mexican cheese blend!

I love chili and especially love trying new recipes. I am adding this to my list! The sweet potato is such a great addition!
Thank you - I'm sure you'll love it!
I could so use some of this right, even though the weathermen keep telling me warmer days are coming, I'm still freezing my butt of and trying to get my hands on whatever soups I can find! This guy looks scrumptious.
I wish I had it today too! It's very comforting :)
Chili is seriously the gift that keeps on giving. I'd love having leftovers of this chili to greet me every night at dinner from now until summer!
Thank you! I can't get enough of chili either :)
