NUTRITIOUS STUFFED SWEET POTATO SKINS!
These healthy sweet potato skins are one of my favorites and families I cook for favorites too. They are cheesy and loaded like nachos but instead of chips I used crispy sweet potato skins. I love a good stuffed potato especially sweet potatoes because they add a hint of sweetness and another layer of flavor plain potatoes don’t offer. Also another health boost who could pass that up! Kid friendly, easy to make and perfect for meal prep.
Made simply with sweet potatoes, protein rich black beans, grilled summer corn, mexican peppers, spices and topped with some gooey grass fed cheese. Think crisp on the outside with a flavor bomb of goodness on the inside.
Each potato skin makes a delicious vegetarian dinner, lunch on a busy day or even an afternoon snack. Whenever you eat them make sure you eat them quickly as everyone around you will want a bite LOL.
A quick tip on cooking the sweet potatoes. I like to bake the sweet potato whole, directly on the oven grates. Cooking the potatoes this way allows them to soften in the center, but also keeps the skins from getting soggy. Or if you don’t want to turn the oven on you can cook the potatoes on the bbq whichever you prefer.
