Koch Mein Recipe: Baked sweet potatoes with chili con Carne

Do you know "Sing my song - the exchange concert"? Welcome to the edible version of the concept: "Cook my recipe – the exchange dish". Volker mampft devised it and thus opened doors with many of his colleagues: Yes, you take far too little time to browse beyond Facebook and Instagram announcers on other food blogs. There's such a food blogger campaign, where you get a bargaining partner and choose a recipe for cooking, but no great thing!

Koch Mein Recipe: Baked sweet potatoes with chili con Carne

Appearance AboutSee-Girls: Isabelle from Konstanz (hence the lake in the blog name) has been cooking on her blog for eight years both internationally and regionally. And in doing so, she deliberately keeps it uncomplicated – "if I can, you can do it," is her motto. Agrees! Your cooking and baking recipes are suitable for everyday use, well-described, and — beautifully photographed! I would have liked to have tried my hand at her version of the Swabian national dish Kässpätzle, but it is not for nothing that we are here at USA culinary. So there are baked sweet potatoes with chili con carne.

Baked sweet potato - with and without meat on top

Why did I choose this? Isabelle's super-appetizing photo wasn't innocent of it, but 1) I love sweet potatoes (see here) and 2) it's hardly more Native American than Chili con Carne. In my case, this has become chili sin carne, as I hardly eat meat anymore. In addition, I wanted to try this vegan replacement hack, which recently even appears at discount stores on the refrigerated shelf. It looks exactly like an industrial hack, smells (and tastes) like nothing, the texture is slightly softer than with "real" hack. Verdict: Can you do as well as you can (I would have had the vegetables in the chili), but for my meat-loving husband, the meatless dish looked somehow more "complete"

In any case, we found the result extremely tasty: creamy-sweet sweet potato, on top of it the spicy chili, which I tasted stronger than Isabell with neat chili and cumin.  The preparation was very uncomplicated: while the sweet potatoes roasted in the oven, I prepared the chili on the stove. After 40 minutes, everything joined together for a delicious dinner. Thanks for the great recipe, Isabelle!


2 medium sweet potatoes
275 g Vega-Hack
1 onion
1 can of chunky tomatoes (400 g content)
2 tbsp tomato paste
1 can of corn (140g drain weight)
1 can of kidney beans (240 g drain weight, I had a bean mix)
Chili powder, cumin, and oregano, to taste
Salt, pepper
50 g feta
some fresh parsley


  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees above/under heat. Wash the sweet potatoes, dry them, and halve them lengthways. Cutover cross and brush with a little olive oil. Place the sweet potatoes on tin and bake for about 35-40 minutes until cooked.
  2. Meanwhile, chop the onion and fry with the vega chop in a little oil crumbly. Top up with the tomatoes, stir in the tomato paste and add the vegetables. Season vigorously and simmer lightly for 30 minutes.
  3. When the sweet potatoes even come out of the oven, spoon the flesh out of the middle until an edge of about one centimeter remains standing. Add to the chili-sin-carne mixture. Mix well and then add one serving of chili to each hollowed-out sweet potato half.
  4. Sprinkle with parsley and feta.


The chili-sin-carne amount is a bit too big for two sweet potatoes - so you have more portion to eat pure! Or fill a third sweet potato.
