  • 1 cup sweet potato, peeled and diced
  • 1 roma tomato, diced

  • 1 1/5 cup black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup shredded chicken (any leftover chicken that you have on hand works for this recipe or you can make some while you are prepping the ingredients for this recipe

How to make it

  1. Heat a pot on your stove top; when hot add olive oil (when you see some ripples) it’s time to add the carrots and the sweet potato. Coat in olive oil and then add the cumin.
  2. Once the cumin becomes fragrant, add the shredded chicken, black beans shallot, garlic, tomato and jalapeno. Let it sweat for 5 minutes.
  3. Add the stock, and let it simmer on low for 20 minutes. Add salt and pepper and the fresh cilantro.
