This is an easy, hearty vegan dish that you can pull together from leftover rice, some basic pantry staples and a little fresh produce. Enjoy it as a side dish or add cheese, avocado and/or your favorite protein inside a flour tortilla and enjoy it as a burrito or quesadilla.
Heat the oil in a medium-sized stock pot, and sauté the onions, sweet potatoes and bell peppers over medium heat until soft, about 10 minutes. Add the garlic and spices, and sauté 2 minutes more until fragrant. Add the diced tomatoes, chopped chipotles, and black beans, simmer for 5 minutes.
Add the rice and heat throughout. Remove from the heat, stir in some fresh chopped cilantro (optional) and serve with lime wedges. Enjoy!
