Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups (1/2-inch) cubed peeled sweet potato
  • 3/4 cup low-salt chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3/4 cup fresh corn kernels (about 2 ears)
  • 3/4 cup drained canned black beans, partially mashed
  • 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

  • 1/2 cup bottled salsa
  • 4 teaspoons chopped fresh cilantro (optional)

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Combine sweet potato and broth in a large nonstick skillet. Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat; cover and cook 7 minutes or until tender. Add onion and garlic; cook 2 minutes. Add corn, black beans, bell pepper, cilantro, and lime juice; simmer, uncovered, 6 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Combine sweet potato mixture and refried beans in a medium bowl.
