The temperature has plummeted again here, back down to the -30’s (-40’s with the windchill) so yesterday I put a nice pot of chilli on in the slow cooker in the morning before leaving for work. What a wonderful welcome when I got home, mouthwatering aroma of chilli cooking away.

A quick look around the fridge found a sweet potato and some other “fixins”……and so, the Chilli stuffed sweet potato was born.

I really must use the slow cooker more often. It is great to know supper is waiting for you when you get home. Chilli makes a great meal either served with fresh bread or, as here, with a baked sweet potato. I slathered on some Cauli Cheez sauce and topped it all off with sliced cherry tomato’s, green onions and jalapeno peppers, delish.

Serves 4

  • 4 medium sweet potato’s, peeled
  • 2 medium onions diced
  • 4 garlic cloves finely diced
  • 1 large can diced tomato’s (low sodium)
  • 1 large can red kidney beans
  • 1 small can tomato paste
  • 2 Tblspns chilli powder
  • 1/2 tspn red pepper flakes
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 batch Cauli Cheez sauce
  • 1 small jalapeno finely sliced (optional)
  • 2 green onions finely sliced
  • 1 cup cherry tomato’s halved

Peel then bake or microwave sweet potato’s until soft. If baking use 325 F oven for approx 40 mins. If using microwave follow manufacturers instructions for time (mine took approx 8 mins) Make sure you prick the potato’s thoroughly before cooking in the microwave to prevent them from exploding.

Remove potato’s and allow them to cool slightly before stuffing.

Combine onions, garlic, canned tomato’s, kidney beans, tomato paste, chilli powder, red pepper flakes and salt and pepper in slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 6 – 8 hours.

Prepare Cauli Cheeze sauce.

Scoop about an inch of flesh of the cooked sweet potato out of the middle and set aside for another use.  Pile cooked chilli into potato and pile up on top. Slather with Cauli Cheez sauce then top with sliced cherry tomato’s, green peppers and jalapeno peppers if using.

  1. This looks incredible! I’ve never heard of cauli cheeze sauce… initially I thought it was cashew cheeze or something nut based. I’m not a fan of cashew cheeze so I will definitely give the recipe a shot. Thanks for sharing.


  2. Looks amazing! I am using the last of my chili on my last sweet potato!
