This vegetarian chili is loaded with sweet potatoes, white beans, and tomatoes—and flavored with chipotle chile paste and Mexican spices. On the side, we’re making quesadillas with squeaky cheese curds and melty cheddar (aged underground at Vermont’s Jasper Hill Farm).

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and medium dice the onion. Peel and medium dice the sweet potatoes. Peel and roughly chop the garlic.

In a large pot, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the diced onion and sweet potatoes; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes, or until slightly softened.

Add the aromatics:
3 Add the aromatics:

Add the chopped garlic, sliced white bottoms of the scallions, and spice blend; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly softened and fragrant.

4 Finish the chili:

Add the chopped kale, beans, tomatoes, 2 1/2 cups of water, and as much of the chile paste as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be; season with salt and pepper. Increase the heat to high and cook, stirring occasionally, 23 to 25 minutes, or until the liquid is thickened to your desired consistency and the sweet potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork. Turn off the heat and season with salt and pepper to taste.

While the chili cooks, roughly chop the cheese curds and cheese pieces. Place the tortillas on a work surface. Top one half of each tortilla with the chopped cheeses; season with salt and pepper. Fold each tortilla in half over the filling.

6 Cook the quesadillas & serve your dish:

Once the chili has cooked about 15 minutes, in a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium until hot. Add the quesadillas and cook 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until the tortillas are golden brown and the cheese is melted. Transfer to a cutting board and immediately season with salt. Carefully cut into equal-sized wedges. Serve the finished chili with the cooked quesadillas on the side. Garnish the chili with the sliced green tops of the scallions. Enjoy!
