Tasty and filling. I loved how easy this was to make as well. Instead of 1 Tbsp of chili powder, I used 1/2 Tbsp chili powder and 1/2 Tbsp cumin. The fresh cilantro is a must. I garnished with extra fresh cilantro and also some sour cream for serving. Thanx for a yummy meatless stew!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large saucepan heat olive oil. Add the onion, green pepper and garlic. Cook over medium heat until the vegetables begin to soften, about 4 minutes. Stir in the chili powder and cook 1 minute. Add 1 cup water and sweet potato. Cover and cook until potatoes can be pierced with a sharp knife, about 10 minutes.
  2. Add the stewed tomatoes and beans, breaking the tomatoes up into smaller chunks with the side of the spoon. Simmer the stew uncovered over medium-low heat until the potato is very tender, about 8 minutes. To thicken the sauce slightly, mash about a quarter of the beans against the side of the pan.
  3. Stir in cilantro and season with Tabasco and salt and pepper (if desired).
