  • Total Time: 17 mins


  • Cooking spray of choice
  • 1 lb sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into small 1/2 inch cubes (keep them small!)
  • 8 oz smoked turkey sausage, fully cooked (I buy link sausage), sliced
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp of cayenne (omit for less spice)
  • 1 15 oz can low sodium black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 12oz bag of frozen cauliflower rice, steamed in bag according to package
  • 1 cup medium or spicy salsa
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup broth of choice
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Sliced green onions, cheddar cheese, and sour cream for topping - optional


  1. In a large nonstick skillet prepared with cooking spray, cook the sweet potatoes over medium heat until about halfway done.
  2. Add the sausage and allow to heat through an extra 1-2 minutes, then add the onion powder, cayenne, black beans, steamed cauliflower rice, and salsa. Allow to cook for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add broth starting with 1/4 cup and adding more if you feel the mixture needs more moisture. Cook till broth is fully heated into the mixture, taste and adjust seasonings (salt, pepper, etc) as desired.
  4. Serve warm with toppings if using.
