Prep: 15 minutes
Total: 45 minutes
Serves: 4



3 tbsp Ava Jane’s Kitchen Avocado Oil

2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into medium chunks

1 onion, chopped

1 large carrot, chopped

2 garlic cloves, crushed

1 tbsp tomato paste

¾ cup water

1 red pepper, cut into chunks

2 x 400g cans chopped tomatoes

2 x 400g cans kidney beans, drained

3 tsp Ava Jane’s Kitchen Los Muertos Barbeque spice blend

1-2 tsp chili powder (depending on heat you desire)

Sliced avocado and cilantro for garnish and to serve

Optional: serve over rice.



Heat oven to 385ºF. Put the sweet potato chunks in a roasting tin and drizzle over 1½ tbsp oil. Roast for 20-25 minutes.

Heat the remaining oil in a large pan over a medium heat. Add the onion, carrot and red pepper. Cook for 8-10 mins, stirring occasionally until soft, then add in the garlic and cook for a minute more. Add chili powder and Los Muertos seasoning, along with the tomato paste, and stir for another minute.

Add the chopped tomatoes and 3/4 cup water. Bring to a boil and simmer for 20 minutes. If you’re making rice, start preparing it now in a separate pot.

Add the beans and cook for another 10 minutes before adding the roasted sweet potato.

Stir for 5 minutes, then season to taste and serve with lime wedges, avocado, rice, and cilantro.
