1/2 pound lean ground beef

1/2 cup diced onion

1 cup sliced carrots

1 cup sliced celery

1 can (15.5 oz.) reduced sodium dark red kidney beans, drained and rinsed

3 cups (1/2 inch) diced, peeled sweet potato

2 cans (14.5 oz. each) no salt added diced tomatoes, undrained

3 cups water

1 Tbsp. chili powder

1 tsp. ground cumin

1 tsp. dried oregano leaves

Pepper to taste


In a small skillet, over medium heat, brown the ground beef, stirring to break up pieces, until browned. Using a colander, drain fat and rinse beef with warm water.

In a Dutch oven, or large soup pot, place cooked beef, onions, carrots, celery, beans, sweet potato, undrained diced tomatoes, chili powder, cumin, oregano, pepper, and water. Mix to combine. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 30 to 45 minutes or until sweet potatoes are tender. Stir occasionally. Mixture will thicken. If too thick, add more water to desired consistency.
