Southwestern Sweet Potatoes and Black Beans

Southwestern Sweet Potatoes and Black Beans created by Rita1652

This is my modified version of "Sweet Potatoes with Warm Black Bean Salad" (a recipe from Eatingwell.com). A great vegetarian dinner or side dish to grilled meats. I added a bit more spice to the original recipe and we love it.

  • Scrub and dry sweet potatoes.Prick each potato with a fork in several places. Wrap in foil and bake in a 375 degree oven for 50-60 minutes or until tender all the way through.

  • Remove potatoes from oven, unwrap and slice potatoes lengthwise, making several cuts. Then slice crosswise, making a cross-hatch pattern, opening up the potato. Spoon half of the bean mixture onto each potato.
  • Top each potato with a 1-2 tablespoons of sour cream and sprinkle with cilantro or chives, if desired.

    Really super, sweet potatoes and black beans go so well together, and all the others ingredients really enhanced them. I used fresh tomatoes and estimate that I added about double the canned chillies. I also reversed quantities for the cumin and coriander. Topped with the optionals of sour cream and lots of cilantro. It was so tasty.

    Comfort food. A complete meal. I added 2 cloves garlic, dried oregano and parsley. Skipped the salt and used a fresh chili`s and rinsed the beans to lower the sodium. Topped with yogurt and lots of cilantro! This makes enough for 6 halves generously filled. Serving more like 6 sides or 3 as a meal. Thanks.
