In our house we stock sweet potatoes like onions, garlic and cheese. So basically, we’re never without a few on hand. I use them for fries, sautés, mashes… you name it! I’m particularly obsessed with stuffing them. Especially when it involves corn, black beans, salsa and cheese (just a handful of my favorite ingredients!) which is exactly what I’m doing today!

These Southwestern Loaded Sweet Potatoes are going to be a staple this year, I can tell. And they feel like the PERFECT way to kick off the official start of fall!

Southwestern Loaded Sweet Potatoes

Ingredients

  • 4 Orange Sweet Potatoes
  • Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste
  • 1 cup frozen charred corn
  • 1 cup cooked black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/3 cup salsa (What’s Gaby Cooking Salsa is preferred 🙂 )
  • 1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese, plus extra for sprinkling
  • 3 tablespoons chopped chives
  • 3 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • Optional Garnishes:

  • Finely chopped red onion
  • Cilantro
  • Chives
  • Pico de Gallo
  • Salsa
  • Guacamole
  • Sour Cream

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Using a knife or a fork, carefully poke holes all over the sweet potatoes. Place the sweet potatoes onto a baking sheet and transfer to the heated oven. Bake for 50-60 minutes until fork tender.
  3. Remove the sweet potatoes from the oven and slice them open. Scoop out a bit of the inside to make room for the stuffing.
  4. Season the interior with salt and pepper and set aside.
  5. In a medium bowl, combine the corn, black beans, cheese, salsa, red onions, chives and cilantro and toss to combine.
  6. Using a spoon, stuff each sweet potato with equal parts of the mixture until majorly overflowing. Add extra cheese on top.
  7. Transfer the stuffed sweet potatoes back into the oven and let bake for another 10 minutes to melt the cheese.
  8. Remove the sweet potatoes from the oven and sprinkle with optional garnishes. Serve immediately.
