Chefs, the long-awaited meeting of two comfort food greats—hearty chili and the loaded baked potato—is here at last. We're using sweet potatoes, whose natural sugars deepen in flavor when baked, mellowing the gentle heat of our chili. A blend of warming spices (including cumin, paprika, cayenne and more), cooked together with tomato paste, results in an intensely flavorful base for the vegetable chili, served right on top of the sweet potatoes. For crunchy and creamy finishes, we're garnishing it all with toasted tortilla strips and dollops of seasoned yogurt just before serving.

Vegetable Chili & Baked Sweet Potatoes with Crispy Tortilla Strips ingredients
Prepare & bake the sweet potatoes:
1 Prepare & bake the sweet potatoes:

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the sweet potatoes; halve lengthwise. Place the sweet potatoes on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to thoroughly coat. Arrange in a single, even layer, cut sides up. Bake 34 to 36 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven and set aside in a warm place.

2 Prepare the remaining ingredients:

While the sweet potatoes bake, wash and dry the remaining fresh produce. Stack the tortillas; cut in half, then into ½-inch-wide strips. Peel the carrots; thinly slice into rounds. Cut out and discard the stem, ribs and seeds of the pepper; medium dice. Peel and finely chop the garlic. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice, separating the white bottoms and green tops. Drain and rinse the beans. Grate the cheese.
