  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1-2 garlic cloves, minced
  • Ad
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 1 medium sweet potato, peeled and diced
  • 1 (28 oz.) can diced tomatoes (I use herb)
  • 1 (15 oz.) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. coriander
  • 1 Tbsp. Chili Powder
  • salt and pepper, to taste


Fry onion, garlic, and green pepper with a little bit of oil in a large saucepan for about 3 minutes. Add chopped sweet potato and 1 cup of water; simmer until potatoes are cooked (5-6 minutes). Add the rest of the ingredients, stir, and cook on med-low heat for about 15-20 minutes.

If you like it spicy, add some Tabasco sauce. I use a Korean chili sauce or some red pepper flakes. Serve with bread rolls.
