An Easy Recipe for Sweet Potatos and Black Beans

I made a great dinner last night!  It was easy and delicious.

Let me back up.  I was planning on making a sweet potato and black bean salad.  My daughter had sent me the recipe and it looked good.  But, with a multitude of email addresses, I couldn’t find the recipe!  So I Googled  “black bean and sweet potato recipe” and came up with this great one from Eating Well — Sweet Potatoes with Warm Black Bean Salad.




I adjusted the recipe a bit, as I didn’t have tomatoes and I didn’t want the sour cream.



This is what I did:

  • Microwave 1 sweet potato (about 5 min)
  • Mix 1/2  can of black beans with 4 oz of salsa , and heat on stove or in microwave
  • Slice sweet potato, press to make a well in the middle  and pour the bean and salsa mixture into the well.

I served it with some steamed kale for a colorful plate!


  1. This looks delightful. I do like sweet potatoes and black beens so I will be giving this a try.
