This looks right up my alley! Definitely making if we get sweet potatoes from our csa
This looks awesome! I love how simple ad satisfying everything you make looks. My boyfriend and I ADORE Chipotle, but going there once a day sounds a little expensive so this would be a great at-home alternative.
Aww, thanks Lauren! And this is definitely a good substitute for Chipotle. :)
I may or may not have just smelled my screen for lime juice. Just kidding (kinda). Am I alone?
This looks delicious, Cassie! Putting this on my *must make* list ASAP!!
How awesome would it be if there was such a thing as scratch-and-sniff websites? I would be ALL OVER THAT. Sign me up.
Only if nothing smells like the black Mr. Sketch marker. If we can promise not to reproduce that scent, then this is brilliant.
Hahaha! I wonder if it’s an all or nothing kind of thing. Like, if you go to the landfill website if it’ll be required to smell like garbage. Maybe then I don’t want it. :P
Holy Cow- making these TONIGHT!
Enjoy! Yum! :)
I love how easy this looks! And healthy!
Mmmmm! This is perfect for me right now. Been looking for just the right black bean recipe to break myself of a newly developed but intense Chipotle habit.
This looks perfect! I decided to give up beef, poultry and pork for Lent, so I have been scouring the internet for awesome meatless meals (this totally fits the bill). I will definitely be making this later this week!
I made this for supper tonight and it is AWESOME! I love that it is not only delicious, but really filling as well. I can’t wait to eat leftovers all week! :)
I just wanted to say that I made this on Monday (along with some cilantro lime rice) and it was so delicious, simple and filling. I’ve been eating the leftovers all week and already can’t wait to make it again! Thanks!
I came across this recipe today looking up recipes for clean eating on pinterest. I like to prep my meals and I’m always looking up new clean recipes. Let me just say that I am SO thrilled that I came across your blog! Oohh myyy goooodnessss!! I made this today and it was soo delicious! I’m a huge sweet potato lover, so this totally satisfied my taste buds. And it really is filling! I made the cilantro lime rice to go with it and that tasted great too! Thank you for sharing! I will definitely be using more of your recipes in the future! :)
Made this for dinner last night. It blew me away. The seasonings and sweet potatoes made the dish. I was hesitant on adding sour cream, but to my surprise, it enhanced the flavors even more for me.
It’s a rarity when I can find a new recipe and like it so much to put it on the regular rotation. Thank you!
I made this tonight for some of our friends who just became new parents! It’s a great “baby-meal” because it keeps well and it’s freakin’ delicious! Thanks for an awesome recipe!
I just made this tonight. We subbed millet for the rice (it’s not as weird as it sounds) and topped with lime juice, salsa, an avocado and sour cream. It was amazing. Made 5 large servings – so, our little family has a leftover meal for tomorrow! :) The only change I made was to add a little more oil to the spice mix for the veggies so it coated them better, but left everything else as-is. Thank you for the fantastic flavor combination. This recipe went right onto our keepers/repeaters list.

This looks insanely delicious! Your photos are so gorgeous too :)
Love this healthy bowl and can’t wait to try it for lunch!
Oh wow these look amazing! Perfect healthy winter dinner!
Growing up my mother always made basic, bland dishes- which is all I know now. I’ve been trying to branch out of my cooking comfort zone and try new things, and gave this a go.
OM NOM! I made this tonight and it was so incredibly delicious! I’ve never worked with peppers, black beans, or garlic bulbs before but it was simple to prepare. Thanks for sharing this recipe, it’s one of my new favorites now.
I love roasted vegetables and could eat them every day. You addition of lime to the spices is an excellent idea – I’ll definitely try it. Though I prefer white rice to brown, I’m good with grains and beans, so maybe I’ll use farro or barley with this.
Ohh all the flavours. It was delicious and so filling. Yum, yum, yum!
This recipe is SO delicious, I have literally made it almost every week since about June when I found it! The black beans/roasted veggies are also super yummy when put on scrambled “Southwestern” breakfast!!! Thank you for this amazing recipe!!!
Curious if anyone has ever tried to freeze this dish? I’d LOVE to try it as it seems everyone is raving about it but with a hubby gone away working all week I’d have a heck of a lot of food For one person. I know I could probably cut it in half but I like cooking big and freezing single servings for busy nights that I don’t have time to cook. Thanks!
I have been making these regularly since 2011. They’re tasty and easy.
A friend of mine brought this in for lunch at work today. It looked delicious…All I ate was one diced sweet potato and the flavors were so intense I could not wait to get the recipe! Will be making this soon.
