‘What meat?’ Will ask even the biggest carnivores while eating this amazing dish. The smells and tastes will take you to fiesta. What I specially like about the recipe is that you can prepare everything in one bowl. And if you’ll have a help with cutting the veggies the preparation time will be even shorter.

For 6-8 people; Very simple; 60 minutes


4 tablespoons of olive or coconut oil
2 teaspoons of smoked red paprika
1 teaspoon of coriander powder
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
1 teaspoon of cumin powder
Chile powder (to you liking)
1 onion; chopped
1 sweet potato; peeled and cut to cubes
3 bell peppers (I suggest different colours); cleaned and cut to cubes
2 carrots; sliced
500 g cooked beans (2 cans)
280 g corn (1 can)
800 cubed tomatoes (2 cans)
6-10 sundried tomatoes in oil; cut to small pieces (*read the wise-ass corner on the bottom of the page)
4 cloves of garlic; minced

  1. In a bigger pot heat the oil and add all the spices. Stir and smell all the amazing smells.
  2. Add sweet potato and onion and cook for around 5 minutes. Add also the bell peppers and carrot and cook some more.
  3. Add beans, corn, cubed tomatoes and sundried tomatoes. Add around 2 dl of water and salt. Mix.
  4. Cover and let it cook for around 30 minutes.
  5. At the end of your cooking add the garlic. Serve with tortillas or rice.

Chilli sin carne is the best after it sits for a while after it was cooked so the flavours can connect.

*I know that sundried tomatoes aren’t the most common ingredient but they really add a special flavour to the dish.

My teaspoons of spices were a bit heaped – because I like well spiced dishes. You can adjust them to you liking.

Add some sour cream on top to make the dish even better!

I cooked some basmati rice as a side dish. Bread fits well also.
