    I made this tonight for dinner, and it was a simple and tasty meal. I topped it with mango salsa and scallions, though I think I'll try it without for tomorrow's leftovers. Low fat sour cream may be nice on top too. - 5/18/08

    I love this! I do it all the time but I like to skip the cheese and to add Ground Cinnamon and Hemp oil, or Flaxseed oil, or Olive oil for the Omegas! Thanks for posting it here! :-) - 11/21/08

    I eat this combo all of time. Try using Trader Joe's precooked lentils, some onion and red bell pepper sauted in olive oil and a touch f honey and cinnamon (just a touch)...Awesome! - 5/31/09

    great way to get in protein and fiber -- and any beans will do! I plan to vary by topping asweets with red beans cooked with onions and peppers.
    Maybe another time I'll top with yoghurt and salsa . . . picante is my fav but I'll also try the mango salsa - 4/22/10

    This is a great lunch to make. Instead of cheese a use salsa for flavor and then add broccoli into the bean mix (or whatever vegetable I have on hand) to boost the nutrition even more. - 2/1/10

    The combination of cheese and sweet potatoes did not sound appealing in the least, but I gave it a go in desperation for something new. I was suprised that it was quite wonderful. I added some salsa on the 2nd half. Yum! - 12/29/09

    No! No! Not bad! I clicked the stars wrong and can't edit it. I meant to give it 4 stars. I added a can of diced tomatoes, teaspoon of cilantro, and cut up a cooked sweet potato before combining all into a cassarole - 10/4/11

    Are sweet potatoes and yams the same thing? Was wondering. This, by the way was very good. Filling. Another alternative per the Biggest Loser cookbook. cook potato, put laughing cow garlic and herb cheese in middle and serve. This way was much more of a meal. Yum - 12/28/10

    this was very good. Made it for myself at lunch, easy to make but maybe a little too dense and dry. Maybe adding more of the water from the beans or a little FF sour cream. Does this count as 2 vegetable servings? - 3/25/09

    Thanks for the recipe. I would not have thought of that combination. Will definitely try this as soon as I can get to the store but will slice the sweet potato on rounds and steam on top of the black beans as they heat. I like the texture better when steamed. Baking makes the potatoes mushy. - 3/23/09
