This is a hearty sweet potato hash side dish. I serve it with tacos, but it goes well with most meats.

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil, or more as needed

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, diced

  • 3 medium carrots, diced

  • 1 medium red bell pepper, diced

  • ½ medium sweet onion, diced

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1 cup canned black beans

  • 1 cup frozen corn, thawed

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon ground dried chipotle pepper

  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika

  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin


  1. Heat 4 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add sweet potatoes, carrots, bell pepper, and onion; cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 20 minutes. Add garlic and continue cooking until vegetables have accumulated browned bits on them, about 5 minutes more.

  2. Stir black beans, corn, cinnamon, chipotle pepper, paprika, and cumin into the skillet. Mix thoroughly and reduce heat to medium-low, adding another tablespoon olive oil if mixture is dry. Cook for another 5 minutes before serving.
