Steps

  • This is a lovely alternative to traditional chilli con carne. It's packed with good stuff so is a great choice for veggies and meat eaters alike. I like to serve it with soured cream, guacamole and either rice or tortilla chips, but it's totally up to you.
  • Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/gas 6.
  • Peel the sweet potatoes and cut into bite-sized chunks. Sprinkle with a pinch each of cayenne, cumin, cinnamon, salt and pepper.
  • Drizzle with olive oil and toss to coat, then spread out on a baking tray and set aside.
  • Peel and roughly chop the onion. Halve, deseed and roughly chop the peppers. Peel and finely chop the garlic.
  • Pick the coriander leaves and put aside, then finely chop the stalks. Deseed and finely chop the chillies.
  • Place the sweet potatoes in the hot oven for 40 minutes, or until soft and golden.
  • Meanwhile, put a large pan over a medium-high heat and add a couple lugs of olive oil.
  • Add the onion, peppers and garlic and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Add the coriander stalks, chilli and spices and cook for another 5 to 10 minutes, or until softened, stirring every couple of minutes.
  • Drain the beans, then tip them into the pan with the tinned tomatoes. Stir well and bring to the boil, then reduce to a medium-low heat and leave to tick away for 25 to 30 minutes, or until thickened and reduced. Keep an eye on it, and add a splash of water if it gets a bit thick.
  • Stir the roasted sweet potato through your chilli with most of the coriander leaves. Taste and season with salt and pepper, if you think it needs it. 1
  • Scatter the remaining leaves over the top, and serve with some soured cream, guacamole and rice or tortilla chips.
