  • 15oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • ½ cup vegetable broth

Prep your ingredients.

Quickly blanch sweet-potato cubes (1-2 minutes) in boiling water, drain and toss with cricket powder and garlic-salt. Set aside.

In a Dutch oven or heavy-bottom pot, sauté the onions and garlic in oil for one minute.

Stir in sweet potatoes, carrots, green chilies, and remaining spices.

Sauté until the onions have softened (about 5 minutes).

Reduce the heat to medium-low, add all remaining ingredients, and stir to combine.

Simmer chili, partially covered for 20 to 25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sweet potatoes are fork-tender.

Serve in bowls, add your favorite toppings, and enjoy.
