Easiest *6 ingredients* chili (ever) Vegan & GF


  • 1 medium onion
  • 3 medium sweet potatoes (4 cups)
  • 1, 16-ounce jar of salsa
  • 1, 15-ounce can of black beans
  • 2 cups vegetable stock 
  • 1 TBSP chili powder

Topping Ideas (optional):

  • Cilantro
  • Red onion
  • Avocado
  • Salt/pepper
  • Greek yogurt (vs. sour cream) *great for protein

IF you want to add more protein and are not vegan, use chicken broth/bone broth instead of vegetable broth, bone broth has a ton of protein (10g protein per serving)! You can add chicken or beef as well (25g of protein per 4oz). Adding in 0% Greek yogurt also adds protein!



  1. Dice up the onion. Wash and cut up the sweet potatoes into squares.
  2. In a large pot over medium heat, brown your onions in 1 TBSP oil (any kind). Cook on medium heat until soft.
  3. Add sweet potato and chili powder. Cook for 3 minutes. Then add salsa and vegetable stock.
  4. Bring mixture to a low boil on medium high heat. Then lower heat to medium-low and simmer.
  5. Add black beans, cover and cook for 30 more minutes (until sweet potatoes are tender and  soup is thick).

If you let the soup sit for a few hours or in the fridge overnight, the flavor "marinates" and pops much more vs. serving immediately.  When served, top with whatever your heart desires! Enjoy.
