IMG_7303

1 pound (heaping 2 cups chopped) sweet potatoes
3 Tbs olive oil, separated
1 red bell pepper (or color of choice)
1 cup white rice (Jasmine)
1 can diced tomatoes
2 cans black beans, drain & rinsed
1 cup frozen corn
3 cloves minced garlic
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp chili powder
2 cup vegetable or chicken broth
2 Tbs lime or lemon juice (optional)
Optional Toppings: tortilla chips,shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream, salsa, chopped cilantro, chopped tomato, avocado or guacamole

Instructions:

  1. Peel the sweet potato and chop into small pieces.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat,¬†combine two tablespoons olive oil with all of the sweet potatoes. If you don’t like any amount of crunch to your sweet peppers, add them after the sweet potatoes have been cooking for about 6-8 minutes.
  3. Saute the sweet potatoes for 8-10 minutes or until pretty tender. Add in remaining tablespoon of olive oil and the rice.
  4. Cook, stirring constantly for 2-3 minutes at medium heat.
  5. Add in the diced tomatoes, black beans, corn, minced garlic, cumin, chili powder, and vegetable or chicken broth (add peppers if not been added already). Give everything a really good stir, bring to a boil, and then reduce the heat to a little bit above low, but not quite to medium heat.
  6. Cover the skillet with a lid and allow to simmer for 10-15 minutes or until all the liquid is drained and the rice is cooked through.
  7. Remove the lid and stir in the lime juice. Serve with optional toppings & enjoy!
