Quick Chili Lunch - Marcella

I have a huuuuge backlog of recipes to post; I'm trying to be good and prioritize work and studies while leaving some time for at least one hobby to reduce stress. Sadly, that one hobby is not doing yet more computer work like blogging...Actually that reminds me: for those of you who also do computer stuff all day, it feels really good (and according to Derek, prevents carpal tunnel), to hold a lightish barbell in your hands, resting your forearms along your thighs with your hands hanging over your knees, and curl your wrists back towards you. How many reps depends on how much weight you've chosen. Works with light barbells too.

Quick "Chili" Lunch
Chili is in quotes because it can just be beans - whatever's on hand

  • 1 sweet potato
  • can of red kidney beans
  • minced garlic
  • (optional) chopped onion
  • (optional) chopped bell pepper
  • avocado sliced
  • salsa
  • chili spices, like chili powder, cumin, turmeric, paprika - whatever you got
  1. In a small pot, saute the garlic and, if using onions and peppers. Add drained kidney beans and spices. The canned beans usually have some salt so it's not necessary to add any.
  2. Meanwhile, poke holes in the sweet potato and microwave for 6-8 minutes depending on size.
  3. Serve by simply cutting the sweet potato lengthwise and crosswise and opening it up a bit, spooning the beans over top, and garnishing with sliced avocados and salsa.
You won't miss the tortillas!
