1 tbl chile powder
salt and fresh ground pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Arrange potatoes in a single layer on a lightly oiled baking sheet, bake 20 min, turning once, until tender, then set aside.

Reduce the oven temp to 350. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and chile and cook, stirring until fragrant about 30 seconds. Ad dbeans tomatoes chili powder and salt and pepper to taste. Stir in the sweet potatoes and simmer for five minutes. Set aside.

Spread a thin layer of salsa over the bottom of a lightly oiled 9 x13 inch baking dish. Set aside.

Oooh, I'll have to make these. I've been all over Vegan Planet, and somehow these escaped my notice??? The World is on it's end!!!

I absolutely adore the combination of black beans & sweet potatoes. Moosewood has an incredible black bean & sweet potato burrito recipe. :mrgreen
