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.

Delicious! Better than I could have hoped. The sweetness of the yams goes perfectly with the chili powder in the beans. I mashed my yams with a little bit of milk and nutmeg to make them taste more yammy, and I had black beans in the freezer this week instead of kidney. I also backed off a bit on the chili powder so the flavor could stand out from the heat. Oh I want to go down and get another one out of the fridge right now! Thanks so much for a winner.

Next time, I'll use more spices. It tasted like a bean burrito to me. I'd like to have more of a sweet potato taste but not sure how. Wasn't hot so I'll try baking them longer next time. I put the leftovers in the freezer and am hoping that they turn out as good as the originals. I didn't use picante sauce but will try on the ones in the freezer.
