Posted on November 23, 2016, in Healthy Recipes


1 tablespoon onion powder

1 teaspoon garlic powder

2 tablespoons chili powder

4 teaspoons ground cumin

½ teaspoon ground chipotle chili powder (optional, adds a spicy kick)

¼ teaspoon salt

1 tablespoons olive oil

3 medium size sweet potatoes, peeled and diced

2 ½ cups water or chicken stock

2 (15 ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained

2 (15 ounce) cans fire roasted diced tomatoes (or regular diced tomatoes)

2 tablespoons honey


  1. In a small bowl mix together all the spices (first 6 ingredients). Set aside.
  2. In a large dutch oven or soup pot heat the olive oil on medium. Add sweet potatoes and spice mixture. Cook until spices are fragrant, about 3-4 minutes.
  3. Add water or chicken stock, black beans, diced tomatoes, and honey. Bring to a boil then simmer for 40 – 50 minutes or until sweet potatoes are soft.
  4. Serve hot. This can be garnished with light sour cream or plain greek yogurt and a little shredded cheese.

If using a crockpot, follow steps 1 and 2 and then place all ingredients into crock pot.  Cook on high for about 4-5 hours or until sweet potatoes are soft.
