Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large red onion, diced
  • 2 red peppers, diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tsp chipotle paste, plus 1 tbsp for the mash
  • 1 rounded tbsp tomato purée
  • ½ tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • ½ tbsp dried oregano
  • 250ml vegetable stock - use gluten-free stock, if required
  • 2 x 400g tins chopped tomatoes
  • 2 x 400g tins beans, rinsed and drained (we used black beans and red kidney beans)
  • 1 tbsp light brown sugar
  • 1.5kg sweet potatoes

Step by step

Get ahead
Prep to the end of step 4, cooling the filling and mash separately before assembling. Cover and chill up to 24 hours ahead, or freeze, then defrost before baking. Cook for an extra 15 minutes from chilled, or until piping hot throughout.
  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large saucepan or lidded casserole. Fry the red onion and peppers with a pinch of salt for 8-10 minutes until softened. Add the garlic, chipotle paste, tomato purée, spices and oregano and fry for a further 2 minutes until fragrant.
  2. Stir in the stock, chopped tomatoes and drained beans. Bring to the boil and simmer for 30 minutes or until thickened. Stir in the sugar and check the seasoning to taste. Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas 6.
  3. Meanwhile, peel the sweet potatoes and chop them into large chunks. Put in a saucepan and cover with cold salted water. Bring to the boil and cook for 16-18 minutes or until soft. Drain in a colander and leave to steam dry for 5 minutes. Return the sweet potatoes to the pan, mash until smooth and stir in the remaining tablespoon of oil and the extra chipotle paste. Season to taste.
  4. Spoon the bean chilli into a large rectangular ovenproof dish (about 28 x 20cm base) and leave to cool for at least 15 minutes before topping with the chipotle mash (or see ‘Get ahead’), taking it to the edges of the pie dish. Rough up the surface with a fork, to help get more crispy bits as it cooks.
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes until the top is golden and the sauce is bubbling up around the edges.
