total time


1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

2 (12 ounce) sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces

1 medium yellow onion, diced

2 poblano peppers, diced

4 large cloves garlic, chopped

1 tablespoon chili powder

2 teaspoons ground cumin

4 cups unsalted vegetable broth

1 (10 ounce) can no-salt-added diced tomatoes with green chiles

1 (4 ounce) can diced green chiles

2 cups water, divided

1 cup uncooked white or multicolored quinoa

1 (15 ounce) can no-salt-added pinto beans, rinsed

½ teaspoon salt

Sliced jalapeño peppers, yogurt and cilantro for serving


Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add sweet potatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly softened and lightly charred, 6 to 7 minutes. Add onion and poblanos; cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly softened, about 3 minutes. Add garlic, chili powder and cumin; cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add broth, tomatoes, green chiles and 1 cup water. Cover, increase heat to high and bring to a boil.

Stir in quinoa, beans and salt. Reduce heat to medium, cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the quinoa is tender, about 15 minutes, adding the remaining 1 cup water during the last 3 minutes of cook time. Garnish with jalapeño slices, yogurt and cilantro, if desired.
