Ingredients

  • 2 cups cooked shredded chicken
  • 1 15 oz can black beans
  • 2-3 medium sweet potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion cut into large chunks
  • 3 cloves garlic peeled
  • 2-3 small tomatoes cut into large chunks
  • 1 jalapeno cut in 4th (Serrano or chipotle peppers can be used for extra spice)
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons taco seasoning optional
  • 1 cup shredded low-fat mozzarella cheese cheddar or pepperjack can also be used

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

  2. Spiralize sweet potatoes with the smallest noodle blade using your spiralizer ( this can also be done with a cheese grater); place sweet potatoes in a 9x13 casserole dish. This would also be a good time to prepare shredded chicken breast to cook if you don't already have cooked chicken on hand.

  3. Cook Spicy Salsa: Heat a medium heavy-duty pan to high heat. Add oil, onions and whole garlic. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until the onions are charred. Add tomatoes, jalapeno, and spices. Cook for another 2-3 minutes or until the tomatoes are soft. Transfer mixture to a blender (do not use food processor like I did) or use an immersion blender. Blend the mixture until it's chunky.

  4. Assemble: In a large bowl combine the salsa, shredded chicken, and black beans. Mix until fully combined. Pour mixture on the spiralized sweet potatoes and top with shredded cheese.

  5. Bake: bake for 35-40 minutes or until the cheese if fully melted and the sweet potato is soft to the touch. Serve Warm. Enjoy!
