Baked Sweet Potato with Warm Black Bean Salad

Recipe Ingredients for Southwestern Sweet Potato

4 medium raw Sweet Potato
15 oz Black Beans
2 medium whole (2-3/5" dia) Tomatoes, Red, Ripe
1 tbsp Olive Oil
1 tsp unpacked Sugars, Brown
1 serving Ground Cumin
0.25 cup Parsley
8 tbsp Sour Cream

Recipe Directions for Southwestern Sweet Potato

  1. Prick sweet potatoes with a fork in several places. Microwave on High until tender all the way to the center, 12 to 15 minutes. (Alternatively, place in a baking dish and bake at 425 degrees F until tender all the way to the center, about 1 hour.)

  2. Meanwhile, in a medium microwaveable bowl, combine beans, tomatoes, oil, cumin, coriander and salt; microwave on High until just heated through, 2 to 3 minutes. (Alternatively, heat in a small saucepan over medium heat.)

  3. When just cool enough to handle, slash each sweet potato lengthwise, press open to make a well in the center and spoon the bean mixture into the well. Top each with a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkle of cilantro.
