2 cups Black Beans, dry
2 cups Kidney Beans, dry
2 cups Pinto Beans, dry
2 lbs. Sweet Potatoes
2 – 6-oz. cans Tomato Paste
2 Onions, medium size

We prepare this sweet potato chili recipe in a 6-1/2 quart slow cooker (Crock-Pot). If you have a smaller slow cooker, or wish to make a smaller batch, cut the recipe in half.
This recipe will take about 8-12 hours of cooking time, so we begin cooking the beans the night before we wish to eat the chili, adding the other ingredients in the morning, and letting it cook on “low” until we are ready to eat.
Begin by turning the slow cooker on to “low” and pouring in 12 cups of cold filtered water.
Clean and wash the beans and add to the slow cooker (all the beans should be covered with water). Cover. Allow the beans to simmer over night.
In the morning, peel and wash the onions and sweet potatoes. Dice the onions, and cut the sweet potatoes into small cubes, not exceeding 3/8 inch (1 cm.) in any direction, and add to the pot of the slow cooker, and mix well.
Open the cans of tomato paste, and add to the slow cooker.
Add all the other ingredients, mix well, and cover.
Allow the sweet potato chili to simmer for 3-4 hours until the onions are semi-translucent, and the sweet potatoes are soft.
Mix well, serve with a large tossed salad, and enjoy!
The above vegan recipe is in keeping with God’s creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): ‘Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground– everything that has the breath of life in it– I give every green plant for food.” And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.’ (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live
