Roast Sweet Potatoes Preheat the oven to 425°F. Toss sweet potatoes with olive oil, salt, and pepper on a baking sheet. Arrange in a single layer and roast for approximately 30 minutes, tossing halfway, until the sweet potatoes are tender.

Add the cumin and chili powder and cook for about 30 seconds. Add the black beans and water and stir. Cover and reduce heat to maintain a gentle simmer.
Mash Beans & Add Seasonings Remove the lid of the saucepan and mash at least half the beans with a fork. Add the lime juice, salt, and pepper, to taste.
