Nacho-Style Twice-Baked Sweet Potatoes

Recipe Courtesy of Clean Eating Mag

There’s something so good about a cheesy stuffed potato. Here, we’ve used sweet potatoes for a nutrient boost. Serve with lime wedges for squeezing over top.


  • 4 sweet potatoes, cut in half lengthwise
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp sea salt and ground black pepper, divided
  • ⅓ cup full-fat sour cream
  • 1 lime, juiced leftover black bean patties (from Black Bean Burgers with Smoky Garlic Mayo), broken into bite-size pieces
  • 1½ cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese, divided
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1 large plum tomato, seeded and diced pickled or fresh jalapeño chile pepper, thinly sliced, to taste


1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment. Brush cut sides of potatoes with oil; sprinkle with ¼ tsp each salt and pepper. Arrange potatoes, cut sides down, on sheet. Bake until tender, 45 to 55 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine sour cream, lime juice and remaining ¼ tsp each salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate until serving.

3. Set potatoes aside until cool enough to handle. Using a spoon, scoop potato flesh into a medium bowl, leaving a ¼-inch-thick layer inside skins. Return shells to pan. Add bean patty pieces, 1 cup cheese and onions to bowl; stir to combine.

4. Spoon bean mixture back into potato shells. Bake until filling is hot in center, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining ½ cup cheese, tomato and jalapeño. Bake until cheese is melted, 2 minutes more. Serve with sour cream mixture.
