15 ounces black beans
1 can, rinsed

Heat oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and sauté until browned in spots, 3 to 5 minutes.

Stir in sweet potato and cook, stirring, until it starts to brown in spots, about 6 minutes. Add garlic, jalapeño, cumin and salt; sauté until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in water, or stock, and bring to a boil.

Reduce heat to simmer, scraping up any browned bits, and cook until liquid is absorbed and sweet potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes.
