  • 1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, diced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons adobo sauce from the can of chipotles

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Place the chopped sweet potatoes on a baking sheet and toss with olive oil (or spray with olive oil spray. Season all over with tajin and toss well.
  • Roast for 20 to 25 minutes, until soft and slightly caramelized, tossing once during cook time.
  • While the sweet potatoes cook, get everything else ready! Make the chipotle ranch below (this can be made a day or two ahead of time), drain and rinse the black beans, cook the rice (or use minute rice). You can throw the black beans and rice in a bowl to start.
  • When the sweet potatoes are done, throw them in the bowls. Top with the avocado, corn and anything else you wish: salsa or a quick pico de gallo, the cotija cheese, pickled onions and the chipotle ranch. Serve with tortilla chips!
