  • 1 tablespoon  canola oil
  • 1 1/2 cups  chopped white onion
  • 1 medium carrot, chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and diced
  • 3/4 pound  boneless center-cut pork loin, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1/4 teaspoon  salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon  chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon  cumin
  • 1 teaspoon  unsweetened dark-chocolate powder
  • 1 teaspoon  dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon  ground cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup  low-sodium vegetable stock
  • 1 14 ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, diced
  • 1 tablespoon  adobo sauce
  • 1 15 ounce can navy beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup  chopped fresh cilantro (plus more for serving, optional)
  • 4 tablespoons  nonfat Greek yogurt (optional)


1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium-low heat. Add the onion, carrot, celery, garlic and sweet potato; cook 8 to 10 minutes, until tender. Season the pork with the salt and black pepper; add the meat to pot and cook until browned, stirring frequently, about 5 minutes.

2. Mix in the chili powder, cumin, dark-chocolate powder, oregano and cinnamon; cook 2 minutes. Add the vegetable stock, tomatoes, chipotle pepper and adobo sauce; stir, then bring to boil. Reduce heat to low; cover pot and simmer, stirring occasionally, until pork is tender, about 1 hour. Stir in the navy beans and cilantro; cook until heated through, about 3 minutes. Serve the chili topped with more cilantro and a dollop of yogurt if desired.

Excellent recipe! I loved it, the first taste of sweet and ending with just a bit of spicy - It was wonderful. Great for cold winter nights!

I thought this recipe was just ok. It was definitely spicier than expected, but not as flavorful as I was hoping. I did forget carrots and I probably could have used a larger size sweet potato to help balance out the spice of the chipotle pepper. The greek yogurt unexpectedly added taste to this recipe.

I only rated this 3 out of 5 stars. It's not great and it's not horrible. It's just "OK." It's spicier than I expected (and I like spicy stuff) and the flavors are "odd." Not bad...just different. I had my first serving for lunch today. We'll see how I feel about it after eating it everyday for lunch this week.
