METHOD

To begin, dice all your vegetables. Next, drizzle olive oil in a big pot and add in your bell peppers, poblano peppers, black beans, sweet potatoes, tomatoes and zucchini. Stir well and mix with your spices: salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika, chili flakes, cinnamon, cumin and cayenne. Let all those flavors come together and stir every 1-2 minutes for about 10 minutes.

Next, add in your nut milk and vegetable broth. Adjust with salt and pepper as needed. Let your chili simmer and absorb most of the liquid for about 30-40 minutes. Adjust to your preference more or less liquid depending on your desired consistency.

Top with your desired toppings; we used tortilla chips, radish, pickled red onions, cilantro, jalapeño, avocado, and vegan sour cream. Serve and enjoy!
