Put the water, beans, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, corn, onion, bell pepper, chili powder, garlic, salt, optional pepper, optional paprika, and optional cayenne in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Decrease the heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sweet potato is soft, about 20 minutes. Serve with the avocado and lime juice on the side.
