  1. 2 T. vegetable oil
  2. 1/2 cup diced onion
  3. 1/4 cup finely diced poblano chili (use hotter chilies if you prefer)
  4. 3 garlic cloves, minced
  5. 3 cups sweet potatoes cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  6. 1 t. ground cumin
  7. 1 t. New Mexico chili powder (or other chili powder)
  8. salt and pepper
  9. 1 lb can of black beans, drained and rinsed
  10. 6 corn tortilllas, cut into wedges
  11. 12 oz bottle of enchilada sauce (I used Trader Joe's)
  12. 1 cup or more grated cheddar
  13. Optional toppings: sour cream, avocado, cilantro, guacamole, salsa
  1. 1. Heat oil in 10 inch oven-proof skillet over medium low heat. I used a cast iron skillet. Add onions and chilies and saute until softened. Add garlic, sweet potatoes and spices and salt and pepper to taste. Stir well, cover and cook for 5 minutes. Add half of the enchilada sauce and 1/2 cup water. Stir, cover and cook for another 10 minutes, checking occasionally to make sure it doesn't burn or all the liquid doesn't evaporate.
  2. 2. Add black beans, 1/2 cup cheese, tortilla wedges and the remaining enchilada sauce. Stir well, turn heat to low, cover and cook another 5 minutes.
  3. 3. Preheat broiler to low.
  4. 4. Top with remaining cheese and put in the oven under the broiler for around 3 minutes, until bubbly.
  1. This can easily be gluten-free using a GF enchilada sauce and GF corn tortillas.
