Delicious, healthy, and nutritious. I will make these again!
Very good meatless recipe but is fab when spiced up a bit more. I doubled the corn, used 2 cups of sweet potatoes, and added LOTS of cilantro. I tripled the chili pwd and added cumin, garlic pwd. cayenne, and anything else I thought would taste good! I used a mixture of sharp cheddar and pepper jack cheeses, and just mixed everything together, except cheese, to simplify. Served it with avocado, sour cream, and salsa. Yum! Will absolutely make again.
Tried this for dinner tonight, really good! I also went the lazy route, once the potatoes were softish, I poured the water off and added black beans and corn, garlic, chili, and onion powder to the same pot, then just mushed it all together. Spread on whole wheat tortilla and added spinach and cheese, and voila, dinner! Nice basic recipe that you could add lots of interesting things to, definitely a keeper. Thanks!
Found this online for my mom, who's a less than average cook. Easy to make, quick, and yummy. Gave it to an 8, 10, and 12 year old, they loved it (Very picky eaters). Only tweak would be to double the amount of spices in the sweet potatoes.
so, these are perfect. great alternative to a meat quesadilla; the sweet / savor combo is wonderful as a side dish for a meal. I
Took this to a barbeque with salsa and guac on the side, even cold they went over well. all gone!
Everyone loved it and asked me for the recipe. The recipe is best served the next day when the ingredients merge. I didn't have chipolte peppers and jalapeno so I substituted 1 crushed dried red hot pepper and 1 dried jalapeno I grew in my garden last summer (removed seeds), a shake of pizza peppers and half a thinly sliced fresh poblano pepper. It was splendid!
Loved this recipe. I thought it wasn't spicy enough, so I added half a jalapeño, and some cayenne pepper, and extra chili powder, and mixed the corn and beans into the sweet potato. I used less salt; it isn't needed if it's spicy enough. Topped it with guacamole and salsa. Very tasty.
We love sweet potatoes and these came out great. I used more cheese because we love cheese just as much!
