Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 large sweet potato, chopped into small pieces
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt & pepper
  • 12 ounces soy chorizo (I love Trader Joe’s!)
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • Bibb or gem lettuce

For the Creamy Avocado-Lime Sauce

  • 1 avocado
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup packed cilantro

Instructions

  1. Heat cast iron skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add chopped sweet potato and olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and cook for 7-10 minutes until potatoes starts to brown and begin to soften.
  2. Cover skillet and cook for 10 minutes until the potatoes are tender. Remove potatoes from skillet.
  3. Remove chorizo from casing and add to skillet, cooking until the temperature reaches 165 degrees F, about 8-10 minutes.
  4. While chorizo cooks, make the creamy avocado-lime sauce. Add all ingredients to a food processor and process until smooth. If the consistency is too thick, add a little more olive oil or lime juice.
  5. Add sweet potato and black beans into the skillet with the chorizo and cook until heated through.
  6. Serve the sweet chorizo mixture in bibb or gem lettuce topped with the creamy avocado-lime sauce!
