1 cup each


  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes (about 1 1/2 pounds), cut into sticks about 1/4 inch thick

  • ¼ teaspoon salt plus a pinch, divided

  • 2 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream

  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

  • 1 cup corn kernels, fresh or frozen

  • ½ cup shredded Cheddar cheese

  • cup black beans, rinsed

  • ½ cup cherry tomatoes, halved or quartered if large

  • 2 scallions, sliced

  • 1 avocado, chopped

  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro (Optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

  2. Heat oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add sweet potatoes and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until beginning to brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer the pan to the oven and bake until the sweet potatoes are soft, 15 to 20 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, combine sour cream, lime juice and the remaining pinch of salt in a small bowl.

  4. Top the sweet potatoes with corn, cheese and beans. Continue baking until the cheese is melted, about 5 minutes. Top with tomatoes, scallions and avocado. Drizzle with the sour cream mixture. Serve topped with cilantro (if using).

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
