Clipped from a newspaper food section, but I don't remember which one anymore. The sweet potato topping caught my eye, and I thought it might be good to make. Posted here so I wouldn't lose the recipe.
In a large frying pan, heat oil (medium heat). Add onion and bell pepper and saute for 10 minutes. Add garlic and jalapeno, cook for 2 minutes. Increase the heat to medium-high and add the ground beef, cook for about 5 minutes.
Add tomato paste, chili powder, cumin, cinnamon, salt, and pepper. Cook for 2 minutes.
Stir in chopped tomatoes and simmer 15 minutes to reduce liquid.
Mix in corn, beans and cilantro.
Spoon mixture into a 9 x 9 ovenproof baking dish.
Put sweet potatoes in a pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil, turn heat down to simmer and cook 30 minutes. Drain, then mash with butter and milk.
