Spicy Cheesy Breakfast Skillet


1 tbsp olive oil

1/2 yellow onion, diced

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 tsp cumin

2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped

1/2 cup frozen roasted corn (or just regular frozen corn)

1 cup black beans, canned or homemade

1 jalapeno, seeded and diced

3/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (optional but very tasty!)

1/2 cup shredded monterey jack cheese

3 eggs

hot sauce for serving


Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the onion and saute for about six minutes until tender. Add garlic, jalapeno and frozen corn and continue to saute for another four minutes. Add cumin and toss well.

Add sweet potatoes and black beans, then reduce heat to low, cover skillet and let cook for about 20-25 minutes until sweet potatoes are tender. Check every five minutes or so to make sure the potatoes aren't sticking to the bottom of the pan. You can add a little water if mixture seems too dry.

Preheat broiler.

Add cayenne pepper and salt to sweet potato mixture then add cheese and stir over low heat until all the cheese has melted. Crack three eggs on top of mixture then transfer to the oven and broil on high for 3-5 minutes until eggs are cooked through.

Serve with hot sauce!
