I bought some plantains and didn't know what to do with them, so I came up with this. Great for a quick lunch.

This is my favorite easy meal! I prepare dried black beans and freeze them in cup portions for meals like this. If I am in a pinch I use canned beans, rinsed VERY well to cut back on sodium. I bake the sweet potatoes the night before or else I wrap them in a damp paper towel and microwave them about 3 minutes per each medium potato. You can also use frozen chopped onions to save time or else chop the onions beforehand and store in the fridge.

You may need more or less salt and pepper depending on your preference.

If you exclude the rice, this also makes an excellent empanada filling.
