This is Sun Basket’s family-friendly, gluten-free spin on an indulgent classic. 

Ingredients

  • 3 sweet potatoes (about 1¾ pounds)
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil (divided)
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 or 3 cloves peeled fresh garlic
  • 1 chipotle chile in gluten-free adobo (these come in can and are easily found in most grocery stores)
  • 2 cups cooked black beans
  • 1 cup mirepoix ( 1/3 cup onions - 1/3 cup carrots - 1/3 cup celery)
  • Chili spice blend: 2 1/2 tablespon chili powder, 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander,1 teaspoon ground cumin, 3/4 teaspoon granulated garlic (mixed together)
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1 lime
  • ½ cup Greek yogurt
  • ½ pound jicama, peeled and cut into sticks
  • 6 or 7 sprigs fresh cilantro
  • 3 scallions
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese

Instructions

Prep and roast the sweet potato fries and prep jicama:

Heat the oven to 450ºF and place oven rack in center position

  • Peel jicama and cut into sticks, set aside. Scrub or peel the sweet potatoes. Trim the ends and cut the potatoes in half lengthwise, then cut each half lengthwise into ½-inch-wide wedges.

On a sheet pan, toss the sweet potato wedges with 2 tablespoons oil and season generously with salt and pepper. Spread in an even layer and roast, turning once halfway through cooking time, until tender and lightly browned, 25-30 minutes. While the sweet potatoes roast, prepare the chili.

Cook the chili

  • Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1½ teaspoons.
  • Finely chop the chipotle chile in adobo sauce.
  • Rinse the black beans.
  • dice carrots, onion and celery for mirapoix
  • Toss spices together to make chili spice blend

In a medium size sauce pot over medium-high heat, warm 2 tablespoons olive oil until hot but not smoking. Add the mirepoix (diced onions, carrots, celery), season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic, chili spice blend, and 1 chile in adobo (or less if you are sensitive to heat) and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the black beans, tomatoes, and ⅓ cup water and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, 3 to 5 minutes. While the chili simmers, prepare the lime yogurt and jicama sticks.

Make the lime yogurt; prep the jicama sticks

  •  Juice the lime; the juice will be divided between the yogurt and the jicama sticks.

In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt and half the lime juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper. In a medium bowl, combine the jicama sticks, remaining lime juice, and 1 teaspoon oil and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Prep the remaining ingredients; finish the fries

  • Coarsely chop the cilantro.
  • Trim the root ends from 2 scallions; thinly slice the scallions for garnish; save the remaining scallion for another use.

Stir the cilantro into the chili and season to taste with salt and pepper. In a medium ovenproof bowl or plate, spread the sweet potato fries, top with the chili, and sprinkle with the cheddar cheese. Warm in the oven until the cheese melts, 2 to 3 minutes.

Serve:

Garnish the chili cheese fries with the lime yogurt and scallions. Serve the jicama sticks on the side.

Kids can!

  • Press the garlic (if you have a press).
  • Rinse the black beans.
  • Juice the lime.
  • Toss the jicama sticks with the lime juice.
  • Stir the cilantro into the chili.
