Three-Bean Chipotle Chili with Cashew Sour Cream

• 8 chipotle chilies • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil • 2 tablespoons ground cumin • 1 teaspoon dried oregano • 1/4 cup tomato paste • 8 cloves garlic, minced • 2 medium onions (1 pound), small dice • 1 medium carrot (1/2 pound), large dice • 1 sweet potato (8 ounces), large dice • 2 poblano peppers (1/2 pound), large dice • 1 red pepper (1/2 pound), large dice

• 3 avocado leaves • 2 tablespoons sea salt • 10-ounce package frozen organic corn • 1 cup pinto beans, soaked overnight • 1 cup black beans, soaked overnight • 1 cup kidney beans, soaked overnight • 10 cups water or vegetable stock • 1 28-ounce can tomatoes, chopped • 6 limes (2 limes juiced, 4 cut into 12 wedges) • 1 ounce cilantro, stemmed and roughly chopped • 1/2 bunch scallions, thinly sliced

Preheat oven to 350° F. Bake chilies on sheet tray 10–12 minutes until fragrant and puffed. Remove seeds from chilies, and powder remainder in coffee grinder. Set aside 2 tablespoons chili powder. In 1-gallon pot, heat oil over medium flame. Add chili powder, cumin, oregano, tomato paste, and garlic. When ingredients start to sizzle, immediately add onions, carrot, sweet potato, poblanos, red pepper, avocado leaves, and salt. Sweat vegetables for 10–15 minutes covered, stirring occasionally. Add corn, beans, and water (or stock). Bring chili to boil, reduce to simmer, and cook covered for 1 hour or more, stirring occasionally until beans are tender. Add tomatoes, and cook until chili is thick. Add lime juice to taste. Garnish when serving with cilantro, scallions, and cashew sour cream (recipe to the left).
