Sweet Potato Chili


Sweet Potato Chili
Author: The Allergy Free Family
2 lbs grass-fed beef
1 large yellow onion – diced
4 cups navy beans*
3 1/2 cups tomato sauce or puree
2 cups chicken broth
3 cloves of garlic – minced 
2 tsp of salt (adjust to taste)
1/2 cup fresh chopped cilantro
3 cups sweet potatoes – finely diced 
This makes 16 cups, so cut recipe in half for a smaller batch.


Brown beef in a large stock pot.  Add all of the remaining ingredients except for the cilantro.  Cook on a low simmer for around 20 minutes until the sweet potatoes are tender.  Add the chopped cilantro and simmer another 5 minutes.  Serve with your favorite toppings!


Canned navy beans can be used or sprouted navy beans. Just make sure to cook the sprouted beans first. Using sprouted beans help reduce the anti-nutrients like phytic acid and lectins that legumes naturally carry. Here’s a great article explaining why it’s important to sprout beans first.
