A recipe for my Mom's vegetarian Mayan polenta bake with layers of sweet potato, refried beans, polenta, red chile sauce and cheese. This comforting dish is creamy, sweet, spicy, and incredible!
To make the bake: In a separate medium bowl, add in polenta and a few tablespoons of water. Use your hands to mash the polenta and break it up again. Transfer to prepared pan and press into the bottom of the pan, creating a base for the bake.
Next spread half of the refried beans, slices of the sweet potato, onion/pepper mixture, half of the sauce and 1/2 cup of cheese. Then spread the remaining refried beans on top, the rest of the sweet potatoes, the other half of the sauce and remaining 1/2 cup of cheese.
