Why is nobody using it?  Perhaps nobody likes to cook anymore?  Hoarding recipes and don't want to share?  You quit smoking now don't tell me you quit cooking too!!

 

Somebody post a good recipe for sweet potatoes.  Thank you.  Have a good day.  :)

Ingredients
8 small sweet potatoes
coconut oil
3 avocados, peeled and pitted
1 large tomato, diced
½ cup diced red onion
½ jalapeño, diced
1 lime, juiced
¼ cup chopped cilantro
sea salt and pepper, to taste
1 cup cooked black beans
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Instructions
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Rub each sweet potato with coconut oil and place in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until fork tender.
While the sweet potatoes are cooking, in a bowl, make the guacamole. Start by mashing the avocado and then add the tomato, onion, jalapeño, lime juice, and cilantro. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
When the sweet potatoes are done, take them out of the oven. Cut each one in half and scoop out half of the filling. Set the filling aside.
Sprinkle some of the black beans and cheese on each sweet potato half and place back in the oven to melt the cheese, 3-4 minutes.
When melted, take out of the oven and top with a scoop of guacamole. Enjoy!
Serves 8-10

Sweet Potato Chili

 

Ingredients

2 c. fresh red peppers or frozen stir-fry pepper blend

1 t. minced garlic

1-2 t. ginger root

1 t. cumin seeds

1-2 T. oil

3 c peeled, cubed sweet potatoes (1/2 inch thick)

1 can (14 ½ oz) reduced sodium diced tomatoes, undrained

2 cans (15 oz) black beans, rinsed and drained

1-2 chipotle chilies in adobo sauce, chopped

1 c water or vegetable broth

2-3 t chili powder

½-1 t ground cumin

Salt to taste

 

Saute peppers, garlic, ginger and cumin seeds in oil in a large saucepan until tender, about 5 mins.  Add remaining ingredients, except salt and heat to boiling.  Reduce heat and simmer, covered, until potatoes are tender, about 15 mins.  Season to taste with salt.

Makes 6 servings (about 1 cup each)  ** Chipotle chilies are dried, smoked jalapeno chilies.  They are often canned in adobo sauce, which is made with ground chilies and spices.  They add a distinctive smoky flavor to this robust chili; taste before adding a second chili, as they can vary in heat.
