Sweet Potato Chili Casserole Recipe
Check out the Ingredients:
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 15oz. can black beans, rinsed and drained
- 1 large yellow onion, diced
- 3 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1 cup red bell pepper, diced
- 2 tablespoons chili powder
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- 1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes
- 1 cup low sodium beef broth
- 2 cups sweet potatoes (peeled, diced into 1” pieces)
- 1 cup shredded Monterey jack and cheddar cheese
- salt and pepper to taste
Pre-heat the oven to 400oF.
Cook the ground beef in an equal layer in a 12-inch cast-iron pan over medium-high heat until browned. Excess grease should be drained, leaving roughly a tablespoon. Combine the onions, garlic, bell pepper, sweet potato, and seasonings in a mixing bowl. Cook, stirring regularly, for 3-5 minutes, or until the veggies soften. Bring the tomatoes, black beans, and beef broth to a boil.
Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the sweet potatoes are cooked, in a cast iron pan on the middle rack of the oven. Broil the shredded cheese until it is melted and bubbling, about 2-3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste; serve right away and enjoy!
