We have beans every Monday night! (I wonder if my kids will ever eat beans again on a Monday after they leave home!) I love beans and I am always looking for new ways to use them in recipes. The combination of beans with sweet potatoes is really quite tasty. Give it a try and see what you think!
1 T canola oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
1 medium green pepper, chopped
Saute above ingredients until tender.
Add to vegetables and stir one minute:
1 T chili powder
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 t ground cumin
Add 1 tablespoon water and stir, scraping the pan to spread the chili powder and cumin throughout.
Stir in and cook until heated.
2 cups cooked and diced sweet potato
(I usually peel and dice the sweet potatoes then steam them until they still hold their form.)
2 cups cooked black beans or pinto beans (Canned beans would work fine too!)
1 cup frozen corn
juice from one lime
Serve in a flour tortilla with sour cream. (It is good just by itself too.)
