  • 1 (28oz) can diced tomatoes

 Directions

  1.  In a large pot heat some oil over medium-high heat. Add the onions, garlic, carrots, celery, salt, pepper, chili powder, paprika, cumin and cayenne and sauté for a couple minutes. Add the tomato paste. Sauté for a several more minutes.

  2. Add the diced sweet potato, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, quinoa, vegetable broth, black beans, kidney beans, and corn. Mix together, then, bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook for 35 minutes, until the sweet potato is soft.
