Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 425°
  • Toss sweet potatoes with the olive oil, chili powder, cumin and paprika until evenly coated.
  • Bake the sweet potatoes for 20 minutes, or until fork tender.
  • While the sweet potatoes are roasting, add the black beans to a small saucepan over low heat to warm. Flavor with fresh lime juice, salt, pepper and cumin.
  • If choosing to prepare flavorful beans: While the sweet potatoes roast, heat 2 tablespoons oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the onions and 1/2 teaspoon salt, and sauté until soft and translucent, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the garlic and jalapeño, and sauté 2 minutes more. Fold in beans.
