This is hearty mix is a twist on a Taco Bowl that offers the opportunity for a sweet and spicy dinner. Get creative with Mexican and Latin flavors or try it vegetarian.
1 sweet potato cubed and roasted
¼ tsp. garlic powder
salt & pepper to taste
½ can of rinsed black beans
1 lb lean ground chicken (or beef or lamb)
1 can Hunts Fire Roasted Diced Garlic Tomatoes
1 large clove minced garlic
2 separate tbsp cilantro
¼ cup shredded cheese
plain Greek yogurt
roasted tomatillos, salsa, chimichurri, hot sauce
Preheat oven at 420°F
Cut the sweet potato into cubes. Spread them on a sheet pan, spray potatoes with cooking oil spray, sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Roast for 15 minutes. Exact roasting time will depend on cube size and your oven’s personality.
Sauté the ground chicken for about five minutes – until no longer pink- then add the can of Hunts Fire Roasted Tomatoes. Add the minced garlic and 1 TBSP of the cilantro. Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste. Your ground meat and tomato mixture is four servings so half should be packed away for another meal.
Build two bowls, share with a friend or create one for now and one for later. Each bowl will get half the potatoes and ¼ cup of rinsed off black beans. Top with ¼ of the meat mixture, split the shredded cheese. Feel free to add other yummy toppings and enjoy!
