How to make sweet potato black bean burrito bowls
- Preheat the oven to 400F.
- Cook cilantro lime rice. Combine 1 cup basmati rice and 2 cups water with 1 teaspoon of olive oil, and 1 teaspoon of salt in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil and cover. Simmer for 20 minutes, until water evaporates then turn off the heat and let sit. Once cooled, add some olive oil, garlic, lime juice, chopped cilantro, and toss until completely mixed. Set aside.
- As the rice is cooking, wash and peel the potatoes, then dice into small cubes.
- Place them into a bowl and add smoked paprika, cumin, garlic powder, salt and olive oil. Stir everything well. Arrange onto a baking sheet and put in the oven for 20 minutes.
- Add canned black beans to a small pot and bring to a simmer and cover with a lid. Make sure to check often and stir occasionally. When it's done cooking, drain the liquid and set aside.
- If you are making homemade pico, guac, corn salsa, and sour cream, now is the time to prep them and then place in the fridge.
- When the sweet potatoes are done, remove from the oven and set aside.
- Arrange all the fillings in a bowl and garnish with lime wedges. Serve with a side of tortilla chips and enjoy!
Tips For Success
- I love making all the sides homemade but if you're short on time, store bought will do. Opt for any high quality, limited ingredient, organic brand you can find.
- Add some chili powder to the sweet potatoes seasoning for an added kick.
- When baking the sweet potatoes, flip halfway to ensure they are evenly cooked through.
- You can use your air fryer instead of the oven if you have one. I find that they make the sweet potatoes a little more crispy. Make sure to preheat before using at 400 F and then air fry for about 10 minutes. Toss the basket midway.
- Store leftovers in separate air tight containers in the fridge for 3-5 days.
