Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 2 cloves garlic * minced
  • 8 ounces tomato sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1-2 chipotle peppers * minced
  • 1 teaspoon adobo sauce (from canned chipotle peppers)
  • 1 can black beans * drained and rinsed
  • 4 cups sweet potato cubes * from 2 large sweet potatoes

CIlantro-Lime Avocado Smash

  • 1 avocado
  • 1/2 lime * juiced
  • 1/4 Cup cilantro leaves * minced
  • 1 teaspoon agave * or honey

Instructions

  • PREP: cut your sweet potatoes into bite-size cubes. Also, mince the garlic and chipotle peppers (removing the seeds will eliminate the spice factor, or add more for extra heat!). Drain and rinse the black beans.
  • In a large skillet over medium heat, add the ground beef and garlic. Cook until the beef is no longer pink. Drain the excess fat from the pan and add the mixture to your slow cooker.
  • Stir in the tomato sauce, chili powder, cumin, salt, chipotles, adobo sauce, black beans, and sweet potatoes. Place the lid on the slow cooker and set to low.
  • Cook for at least 6 hours.
  • Make the Cilantro-Lime Avocado Smash right before serving to avoid browning of the avocado. Simply mash the avocado, lime juice, cilantro, and agave (or honey) together in a bowl with a fork until well blended.
