Prep time: 30 minutes

Cook time: 60 minutes

Servings: 6

Circulon Symmetry Chocolate 5.5-Quart Casserole

6  slices thick-cut smoked bacon, chopped

1 pound sweet potatoes, peeled and diced into 3/4-inch pieces

2  medium onions, chopped

1  jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped

5  garlic cloves, minced

2  tablespoons chili powder

2  teaspoons ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano









1/4 teaspoon ground chipotle pepper

2 cups chicken broth

1 can (14 1/2 ounces) no-salt-added fire-roasted diced tomatoes

1  can (15 ounces) no-salt-added black beans

1/2 cup quick-cooking barley

1/2  teaspoon salt

Heat casserole over medium heat. Add bacon and cook until browned and crisp, about 7-8 minutes. Using slotted spoon, transfer bacon to paper towel-covered plate.

Reduce bacon fat in casserole to 2 tablespoons and return to stove over medium-high heat. Add sweet potatoes, onions and jalapeno pepper; cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is slightly softened, about 5 minutes.

Add garlic and cook 1 minute. Stir in chili powder, cumin, oregano and ground chipotle; cook until fragrant, 15 seconds.

Pour in broth, tomatoes, beans and barley; reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until sweet potatoes are tender and barley is cooked through, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in bacon and salt; let stand 15 minutes before serving.
