  • ¾ cup tomato sauce
    Pasta and Rice
  • 1 cup chopped yellow onion

Steps

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Poke holes in sweet potatoes with a fork then place on foil-lined baking sheet. Roast potatoes in the oven for 40-50 minutes or until you can poke a fork or knife into the middle of the potato.
  • While the sweet potatoes are roasting, prepare the chili by heating oil over medium-high heat.
  • Add in onion, bell pepper and garlic; cook until onions softens about 6-8 minutes. Next mix in chili powder, oregano, cumin and chipotle chili powder or cayenne; stir for 1 minute.
  • Mix in beans and tomato sauce. Bring chili to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until sweet potatoes are done cooking and chili thickens. Taste and season again with salt and pepper or additional spices.
  • Once sweet potatoes are done, split them open.
  • Place about 1/3-1/2 cup of chili in each potato then sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of cheese. (You will most likely have extra chili leftover which you can serve on the side.) If youd like you can place them back in the oven for 5 minutes to help the cheese melt a bit. Sometimes I stir the cheese in with the black beans before I stuff the sweet potatoes - this ensures that the cheese gets ooey-gooey. Top potatoes with cilantro, avocado and greek yogurt or sour cream, if desired.
  • Serves 4.
