Dinner will be ready in a flash! These are so tasty and wonderfully healthy. High in protein and low in fat. You can also use black beans or cannelini beans. I found this recipe on the internet and altered it to my liking.

I had a sweet potato hanging around for a while and was looking for something to do with it. I actually found this recipe on Allrecipe web site but wanted to rate it so I came here. This was really excellent, such a wonderful blend of flavours. I microwaved the sweet potato for 4 min, made things go pretty quick. The only changes I made were to add some finely minced jalapeno peppers and I had no kidney beans so I subbed canned black beans. I left the bean/onion mixture a bit rough as I like the texture of the beans. Oh, and I forgot to add the water to the bean mixture but I don't think it took anything away from the recipe.
