Saute garlic and onion, cook until the onion turns translucent, about 1-2 minutes. Add ground beef, chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper. Stir and cook until the beef is fully browned.
Add chopped sweet potato, diced tomato, and corn—season with salt and pepper.
Cover the pan with a lid and cook for approximately 15 minutes, or until the sweet potato is fork-tender, stirring occasionally.
Once the sweet potatoes are cooked, return the beef mixture to the pan and mix everything thoroughly.
Sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese on top, cover with the lid until the cheese melts.
Serve with salsa, fresh cilantro, or green onions. Add a drizzle of fresh lime for balanced flavor. Enjoy!
