Number of Servings: 9


    1-1 1/2 coconut oil
    2 cups diced onion
    1 1/2 cups diced celery
    1/2 cup diced red or yellow peppers
    4-6 medium garlic cloves, minced
    1 tsp sea salt
    pepper, to taste
    2 tbsp mild chili powder
    1/2 tsp cinnamon
    1/8 tsp allspice
    2 1/2 - 3 tbsp cocoa powder
    2 cans diced tomatoes
    1 can rinsed & drained black beans
    1 can rinsed & drained kidney beans
    1 can rinsed & drain pinto beans
    1 can light coconut milk
    1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
    2 tsp chipotle hot sauce (I used Tobasco)
    1 cup frozen corn
    1- 1 1/2 tsp agave nectar
    1-2 fresh limes (for garnish)


In a large pot on medium heat, add oil, onion, celery, peppers, garlic, salt & pepper, chili powder, cinnamon, and allspice, stir to combine. Cover and cook for 7-9 minutes, stirring occasionally; reduce heat if onions start to burn. When onions start to soften, add cocoa and stir for 1-2 minutes, then add tomatoes, beans, coconut milk, and coconut, and stir to combine. Increase heat to bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in corn kernels and agave nectar, and cook another 5 minutes to heat through. Remove cover and let liquid reduce if desired. Season to taste with additional salt, pepper, and/or hot sauce. Serve with lime wedges and squeeze on generous amounts of juice.

Makes about 9 one-cup servings.

  • Very tasty. Nice blend of flavors. Was perfect with a dollop of sour cream (so much for vegan!). Took more than 5 minutes to prepare though! - 11/12/12
