Total time
Serves: 4-6
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, cut in 1 inch chunks
  • 1 Tablespoon Mrs. Dash southwest chipotle seasoning (or your favorite chipotle blend)
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoons brown sugar, reserved
  • 1 can corn
  • 1 can black beans, rinsed & drained
  • ½ cup roasted red pepper, diced
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
  1. Add cut sweet potatoes, Mrs. Dash seasoning, and olive oil to a large zip-lock plastic bag. Shake to coat thoroughly. (or mix all ingredients in a large bowl)
  2. Heat a large frying pan or cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add potato mixture and cook stirring frequently. When potatoes just start to brown,(approx. 15 min.) add brown sugar (adding earlier will cause the potatoes to burn quickly) . Cook until golden brown and tender . Set aside to cool.
  3. In a large bowl combine corn, black beans, cilantro and cooled sweet potatoes. Mix thoroughly, you may wish to add a drizzle of olive oil if necessary.
Salad can be served room temperature, chilled or hot. Garnish with additional cilantro or a little dollop of sour cream.
