2 Tbs olive oil
1 yellow onion, diced
1 orange bell pepper, diced
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1 jalapeno, chopped
1 Tbs cumin
2 Tbs chili pepper
2 28 oz cans diced tomatoes
1 28 oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 chipotle chili pepper in adobo sauce, diced
1 bottle of dark beer like Guinness
2 large sweet potatoes, diced into 1" cubes
Heat oven to 400
Season sweet potatoes with a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper. Layer potatoes on a cookie sheet and roast for about 20 minutes or until just tender. Set aside when done.
Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat and saute onions for 4 minutes. Add garlic, jalapeno and bell pepper and saute for another few minutes. Add chipotle, cumin and chili pepper and saute until fragrant about 2 minutes.
Stir in tomatoes and beans and season with salt to taste. Turn heat to high and add beer. Once it comes to a boil, turn down to a simmer for 10 minutes.
Lower heat and season to taste. spoon chili into bowls and serve with garnish.
I like to make jalapeno cornbread to serve with the also!
