Twice Baked Southwestern Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Tasty, healthy and guaranteed to please a crowd!

Ingredients
  • 3 whole medium-sized sweet potatoes , washed and scrubbed
  • ½ a red onion , thinly slice
  • 1 (10 ounce) bag Veggie Meal Starters Veggie Pulled Pork or 2 cups Morning Star Farms Meal Starters Grillers Crumbles
  • 1 small red bell pepper , sliced
  • 1 small orange/yellow bell pepper , sliced
  • 1 small green bell pepper , sliced
  • 1/2 cup canned black beans , rinsed and drained
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 cup shredded Mexican cheese (I used non-dairy) (or cheddar or mozzarella cheese)
  • 1 lime , juiced
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • Optional for serving: lime wedges , avocado slices, salsa and/or sour cream
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Arrange sweet potatoes on a baking tray that has been lined with foil. Pierce with a fork and roast for one hour in the oven, or until soft.
  2. While the sweet potatoes are cooking, spray a large skillet with cooking spray and add in onion and peppers. Cook for about 5 minutes over medium to high heat and until soft. Add in preferred Meal Starter, black beans and seasonings; continue cooking until all ingredients are completely coated in the seasonings.
  3. Remove the sweet potatoes from the oven; allow them to cool for about 5 minutes until they are just warm enough to handle; slice in half. Use a large spoon to remove the inside, leaving about 1/4 inch around the inside of the skin. Transfer inside to a medium-sized mixing bowl. Set the skins aside.
  4. Add the Meal Starter mixture and lime juice to the sweet potato in the bowl; stir until completely combined.
  5. Arrange the skins on the same baking pan, and stuff them with the Meal Starter sweet potato mixture. Sprinkle with cheese and bake at 425°F. for 15 minutes.
  6. Serve, topped with fresh cilantro, lime wedges, avocado pieces and salsa. Enjoy!
