These ingredients you probably have in your pantry or refrigerator except for the chipotle seasoning for this easy soup recipe.

First, we need to saute onion and peppers to soften them up. Saute for 5 minutes until tender. Add the olive oil to a medium heat pan (not smoking), then add the chopped onion and peppers.



Step 2: Transfer the cooked red onions and peppers to the slow cooker. Start the slow cooker on low.

Step 3: Now it is time to add the other ingredients. Add the chopped sweet potatoes pieces and cannellini canned beans. Make sure you rinsed the beans before adding them.

Step 4: Now it is time to add the chipotle seasoning, vegetable broth, parsley, basil, garlic, salt, and pepper to the slow cooker. It should almost cover all the vegetables. Stir with a wooden spoon.


Step 5: Cook the stew on low for 5-6 hours. Then, remove from heat for about 15 minutes and serve. It will be too hot to eat when you just turn off the heat.

Here is what the finished dish looks like. Yummy, right?

    Hi Sabrina. Sounds delicious. Could you recommend a substitute for the tomato sauce and chipotle seasoning? I can’t have either due to a medical condition…. But can’t wait to try this. Slow cooker meals are great!!!
