It's hard to feel guilty about devouring a loaded baked potato with pulled pork when it's a beta carotene-packed sweet potato topped with fiber-filled mango. Shave down prep time by using two cups of thawed Make-Ahead Oven-Roasted Pulled Pork!

Ingredients

Sweet Potatoes

4
large sweet potatoes (red-fleshed)
1/4
teaspoon salt

Mango Salsa

1
tablespoon packed brown sugar
1
tablespoon lime juice
1 1/2
teaspoons dark rum
2
teaspoons finely chopped gingerroot
1
tablespoon finely chopped seeded jalapeño chile
1/4
cup diced red onion
1
cup diced mango
2
tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

Toppings

2
cups oven-roasted pulled pork
1
tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2
teaspoons jerk seasoning
1/4
cup crumbled queso fresco cheese (1 oz)

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 400°F. Line rimmed cookie sheet with foil; spray with cooking spray. Place sweet potatoes on cookie sheet, and poke all over with fork. Bake 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes or until completely tender when pierced all the way through with knife. Cool about 10 minutes or until easy to handle.
  • 2 Meanwhile, in small bowl, stir together brown sugar, lime juice, rum and gingerroot until brown sugar dissolves. Add jalapeño chile, onion and mango; toss to coat. Stir in cilantro; cover and refrigerate.
  • 3 In medium microwavable bowl, mix pork, olive oil and jerk seasoning. Microwave uncovered on High 1 to 2 minutes or until steaming hot.
  • 4 Cut open sweet potatoes. Using fork, mash up the flesh of each potato in their jackets. Divide salt among potatoes, and stir in with fork. Divide pork mixture, salsa, then cheese among the 4 potatoes.
Tips  

Don’t fancy liquor in your salsa? No worries--even without the rum, this stuff is delish!

Rinse the raw onion in a strainer with cold water, and pat dry to take away some of that pungent red onion bite.
