Number of Servings: 4


    2 tsp olive oil
    1 small onion, finely diced
    1 small sweet potato, peeled and diced
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1 tbsp chili powder
    2 tsp ground cumin
    1/4 tsp ground chipotle chili
    1/3 tsp salt, or to taste
    1 1/3 c. water
    1 15 oz. can black beans
    1 cup canned diced tomatoes
    2 tsp lime juice
    2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro


1. In large saucepan, cook onion and sweet potato until onion is slightly softened, about 4 minutes.

2. Add garlic and spices and stir for about 30 seconds.

3. Add water, simmer gently covered 10-12 minutes (until potato is slightly tender).

4. Add beans, tomatoes and lime juice; increase heat and return to full simmer; reduce heat slightly and simmer until slightly reduced, about 4 minutes.

5. Remove from heat and stir in cilantro.

Makes 4 c. in total. For me, that's 3-4 servings. For my very tall friend, it was only two. Nutritional information is figured at 4 servings.

(N.B. Cumin and chipotle not currently included in nutritional info.)
