I really wanted to like this recipe, but it just didn't come together like I wanted it to. It's really more of a 3.5 as written, but it has potential. First of all, I used black beans as recommended by other users. I also subbed in chicken broth for the water. Next time I will save myself a WHOLE lot of trouble, and just buy refried black beans. I second guessed using mustard & soy sauce in the beans, and now totally wish I hadn't. In my opinion it threw the flavor off. Second, I added cumin, chili powder, butter, brown sugar, & cinnamon to the sweet potatoes before mashing them. Third, next time I will probably use a Mexican cheese & not cheddar. Like I said, great base for a recipe but way too many tweaks to give this four or five stars.
