From the Test Kitchen

When we think of chili, we usually think of red. In this recipe, we’re bidding goodbye to tomatoes (which aren’t in season) and serving up a hearty, “white” chili with bursts of color from bright sweet potatoes and rainbow Swiss chard. (In the cold-weather months, these two delicious vegetables are at their best.) Spiced with warming herbs and filled out with hearty cannellini beans that hold their shape when simmered, this dish may become your new fall favorite.

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Drain and rinse the cannellini beans. Peel and mince the garlic. Pick the cilantro leaves off the stems; discard the stems. Using a peeler, remove the yellow rind of the lemon, avoiding the white pith; mince the rind to get 2 teaspoons of zest. Quarter the lemon and remove the seeds. Small dice the poblano pepper. Peel and small dice the sweet potato. Peel and small dice the onion. Separate the chard leaves from the stems. Roughly chop the stems on an angle; chop the leaves into bite-sized pieces.
