Instructions
  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, sauté the onion in 1 tbsp olive oil for 2-3 minutes or until the onions start to turn translucent.
  2. Push onions over to one side of the skillet and add the ground chicken, breaking it up into crumbles as it cooks.
  3. Once chicken is almost fully cooked and no pink remains, add a pinch of salt and mix chicken and onions together. Add the red bell pepper, jalapeno, garlic, chili powder, cumin and smoked paprika and sauté until the garlic and spices are fragrant, about 2 minutes.
  4. Then pour in the black beans, sweet potato and chicken broth. Stir to combine, cover, and simmer over medium-low heat for about 5 minutes or until sweet potato is cooked through.
  5. Serve hot. Optional garnish ideas: queso fresco, scallions, pickled jalapenos, pickled red onion, greek yogurt, avocado, sour cream
