I have been craving black beans and salsa for over a week and so has my dad! Because my dad and bro are in town today I was thinking this is the perfect fast meal to prepare. Black beans are fantastic! They are so versatile pairing well with a lot of different food. And sweet potatoes, talk about power food 🙂
It’s easy and combines fresh salsa, a small sweet potato, black beans and diced avocado.
8 Roma tomatoes
3 green onion
small bunch of cilantro
about 1/2 Tbl chipotle and cumin
Dice the tomatoes, mince the peppers, I use scissors for the cilantro, finely chop the green onion and squeeze the lime. Mix well and let it sit while sweet potatoes bake (I used microwave but I prefer baking them in the oven or on the grill)
Rinse 1 can of black beans well, set aside.
Dice 1 avocado.
I placed about 1/2 cup of sweet potatoes in each of 3 bowls, 1/2 cup of black beans, 1 cup of salsa and 1/3 avocado. Enjoy! This bowl is bursting with flavor and nutrition and will last in your tummy 😉 This recipe is similar to a recipe from the Engine 2 diet, the E2 bowl uses a mango salsa with red pepper which is also nice if you’re looking for variation.
