Ingredients:

1 Tbsp. Olive Oil

1 Red Onion, Diced

2 Carrots, peeled and chopped

2 Celery Stalks, Chopped

3 Cloves Garlic, chopped

1 Orange (or Yellow) Pepper, seeded and diced

1 Jalapeño Pepper, seeded and diced

1 1/2 Tbsp. Cumin Powder

2 Tbsp. Chili Powder

1/2 tsp. Cinnamon

1 tsp. salt

1 (28-ounce) can whole tomatoes

2 cups Vegetable Broth

1 (15-ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed

1 (15-ounce) can kidney beans, drained and rinsed

2 sweet potates, peeled and cut in ⅓-inch dice

Directions:

Add olive oil to a 5 quart Dutch oven and warm on medium heat. Saute the red onion, carrots, celery, garlic, pepper, and Jalapeño until they begin to soften, about 5 minutes.

Push the vegetables to the sides and add in the cumin, chili powder, cinnamon, and salt. Toast the spices for about 1 minute, then deglaze the pan slowly pouring in the 2 cups of vegetable broth. Continue cooking for about 3 minutes.

Stir in the tomatoes (breaking them up with the back of the spoon), beans, and sweet potato. Bring the pot to a low boil, then reduce the heat to simmer and cover with the lid. Continue cooking on a low simmer for 20 minutes. Uncover and simmer for 10 minutes to thicken.
