Author Notes: I typically serve this chili atop a bed of Fritos corn chips - or even better, in a bag of Fritos. Consumed countless "bags" of Fritos chili topped with shredded cheese and sour cream in my youth. Tonight's version replaced the corn chips with baked Yukon Gold wedges - and Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. —MVegetarian
- 2 tablespoons canola oil
- 1 sweet onion (1/4" dice)
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 pkg veggie ground chicken or ground round
- 1 can diced tomatoes (28 oz)
- 3 tablespoons tomato paste
- 1 can black beans (19 oz)
- 1 cup fresh corn kernels (or frozen)
- 1 tablespoon chili spice blend (follows)
- 1 chipotle pepper in adobo (minced)
- 2 teaspoons Mexican oregano
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1 mango (1/2" cube)
- 2 cups shredded medium cheddar & monterray jack cheese
- 1 cup Greek Yogurt (plain)
- 10-12 tablespoons Yukon Gold potatoes (cut in wedges)
- salt and pepper
- Preheat oven to 425°F. Wash and dry Yukon Gold potatoes (do not peel). Cut into wedges (eighths). Place in a large bowl - add olive oil - and season with salt and pepper. Place skin side down (wedge up) on a lined baking sheet and bake until golden and top edges are starting to get crispy.
- Heat canola in a Dutch oven and saute onions and garlic until translucent - 5-6 minutes. Add Veggie Chicken / Ground Round (I used Ives Ground Veggie Chicken) and continue to cook for an additional 5 minutes.
- Add remaining ingredients except mango and cheese. Mix well and simmer for 30 minutes - stirring regularly. Add mango and stir to combine.
- When potatoes are tender - place a pile in 8 individual bowls or plates. Top with 1 Cup of chili - 1/2 Cup of shredded cheese - and 2 Tbsp of yogurt...and...Enjoy!
