Guess what's sweeter 'n a sweet pertater?
A Texi-Mexi stuffed sweet pertater!
You're already totally annoyed with me.
I loooooove sweet potatoes. I was eating them for like, hours and days and months in a row until my husband called me out. He thinks they're pretentious. Is that not the weirdest thing you've ever heard? He also doesn't like cheese, sooooo yeaaaaah.
Anyway, my favorite thing to do ever is to Tex-Mex food. Add some black beans, corn, Mexican spices, shredded cheddar and you've just diddly done Texi-Mexi'd!
You're annoyed again.
Grab a couple of sweet potatoes, corn, yogurt, onions, spices, some cheese, spinach, and black beans! And OH, not pictured, a red chile pepper and garlic. Yeah, oops.
Okay first, you'll bake your taters for close to an hour and 20 minutes. I started at an hour, and kept having to put them back in, so I say go for that long! While they cool, sauté up some onions, garlic, the pepper, and corn. Mmmmm.
Then you add some chile powder and ground cumin. Oh yeah.
Here are the sweet pertaters, cooked, being pierced with a fork. I'm not sure why I needed to show you this.
Then you'll add the baby spinach and get it all wilted like. Add some salt and pepper too. Jeah.
Then you'll scoop out the fleshy innards and put 'em in a big bowl. Don't ask about the 4th half. You . . . don't want to know.
To the innards, add the corn mixture and black beans, and half a cup of plain yogurt! Keep adding and mixing until it's good and smooth.
Then scoop it all back into the tater boats and top with a bunk ton of shredded cheddar cheese. See that cheeseless one in the back? Remember the husband I told you about? Uh huh.
Throw 'em back under the broiler so the cheese is melted, browned and bubbly.
Have meeeeeeeeeeeercy to the heavens and back again, Lawdy Louuuu.
I have seeeeeeeeeeen the light and it is briiiiiiiiighter than the aaaaaaaangels.
In other words, I'd advise you to make this.
