We did not make our in the microwave. We baked the sweet potatoes in the oven. Also, I left out the sour cream and tomatoes (my husband's request). Moreover, it was a wonderful alternative to a meat based meal. Did not leave us hungry!
Black Bean-Smothered Sweet Potatoes
For a quick and satisfying last-minute supper, it's hard to beat a sweet potato zapped in the microwave. The fragrant filling of beans and tomato adds protein, making it a nutritionally complete entree. Be sure to eat the potato skin; it's full of fiber.

It was very delicious I did not have enough time to make it in the oven so I did it in the microwave..I will try again in the oven and im sure it will be even better
I made this tonight and it was delicious! I added a little onion and just a dash of cinnamon like someone else suggested. My son and I loved it. My husband however, didn't like it. He ate two of them because he was hungry, so he must have not disliked it THAT much. I should have known, this is a man that doesn't like sweet potatoes. I will definately make it again for my son and I.
Everything was wonderful, I don't know if I would make it again because I could have such a small portion. I loved the recipe itself but I am very dissapointed that is would be represented as healthy. I don't mean to sound so critical, but people turn to you to help them live and eat healthy - sorry guys - this ain't it. Does any one agree with me or am I just getting grumpy because of lack of carbohydrates!
This has become one of my favorite meals to make! It is easy, cheap, and nutritious-- what could be better? I use canned tomatoes, since they are actually better than fresh at this time of year. It's such a simple, wholesome meal after a long day at work, but sometimes I even eat it for breakfast!
