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.
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.

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!
As a college student and vegetarian, eating healthy is a challenge in that it can take a lot of time and/or money. I loved this recipe because it was really simple to prepare, relatively cheap, and still really good and filling! I used a yam instead of a sweet potato, lots of cumin, and added green onion to the beans and tomato mixture. It all came together really well. Next time I might try some plain yogurt instead of sour cream as suggested. This is definitely one of my new favorites!
This was a good meal for me and my wife -- quick prep time and ingredients that are readily available in our house. We had to ditch the cumin as the kids found the recipe as-is a bit too spicy. That said, this is something we'd do again, along with a protein-based entrée so we have more energy for play at the park!
