Prep and roast the sweet potato fries
- Scrub or peel the sweet potatoes. Trim the ends and cut the potatoes in half lengthwise, then cut each half lengthwise into ½-inch-wide wedges.
While the sweet potatoes roast, prepare the chili.
Cook the chili
- Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1½ teaspoons.
- If using, finely chop the chipotle chile.
- Rinse the black beans.
Add the black beans, tomatoes, and ⅓ cup water and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, 3 to 5 minutes.
While the chili simmers, prepare the lime yogurt and jicama sticks.
Make the lime yogurt; prep the jicama sticks
- Juice the lime; the juice will be divided between the yogurt and the jicama sticks.
- Using a sharp knife or a peeler, remove the peel from the jicama; cut the white flesh into ½-inch-thick sticks.
In a medium bowl, combine the jicama sticks, remaining lime juice, and 1 teaspoon oil and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Prep the remaining ingredients; finish the fries
- Coarsely chop the cilantro.
- Trim the root ends from 2 scallions; thinly slice the scallions for garnish; save the remaining scallion for another use.
- Press the garlic (if you have a press).
- Rinse the black beans.
- Juice the lime.
- Toss the jicama sticks with the lime juice.
- Stir the cilantro into the chili.
