Twice-Baked Tex-Mex Sweet Potatoes

Baked sweet potatoes loaded with yummy Tex-Mex ingredients.

Ingredients

4
medium sweet potatoes
3
teaspoons Old El Paso™ taco seasoning mix
1/2
cup shredded cheddar cheese
1
(15-ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
2
tablespoons chopped cilantro
2
tablespoons chopped red onion
1
tablespoon olive oil
4
tablespoons fresh-squeezed lime juice
Salsa and sour cream (for topping)

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 400°F. Wash unpeeled potatoes thoroughly, dry and cover tightly with aluminum foil. Bake for about 50 minutes until tender.
  • 2 Cut sweet potatoes nearly in half (leaving the bottom part of the skin together) and, using a spoon, carefully scoop out the flesh into a medium-sized bowl. Mix sweet potato flesh with taco seasoning and cheddar cheese, then place back in the skins. Top with extra cheddar cheese, if desired, and bake for another 5 minutes or until cheese is melted and starting to brown.

Twice-Baked Tex-Mex Sweet Potatoes

As prepared by Girl Versus Dough,

When life gives you sweet potatoes, what do you do?


Make these Twice-Baked Tex-Mex Sweet Potatoes, that’s what.

I know life more often gives us lemons than it does sweet potatoes. But on the rare occasion that it does toss out taters, this is one way to take the fall vegetable from blasé to bah-blam! Yes, that’s what I said. Let’s keep up the enthusiasm, shall we? Here’s how it goes down:

Preparing sweet potatoes

First, bake (or microwave) your sweet potatoes until they’re nice and soft. Scoop out the insides and place them in a bowl.

Pouring Old El Paso taco seasoning into the bowl

Next, pour some zesty Old El Paso taco seasoning into the bowl, along with some tangy shredded cheddar cheese and mix it all together. You can also use a cheese blend like Mexican or taco cheeses, or toss in something with a kick, like pepper jack. Serious yumness.

Topping with cheddar cheese

For you cheese heads out there, top those hot taters with some extra cheddar cheese and stick them in the oven again until that cheese is ooey-gooey and golden brown.

Combining black beans, cilantro, red onion, olive oil and lime juice in a large bowl

In the meantime, whip together your toppings. In a large bowl, combine hearty and healthy black beans, some cilantro, crisp red onion, olive oil and lime juice. For those who like added spice to their life, feel free to throw in some chili powder or jalapenos.

Finished Twice-Baked Tex-Mex Sweet Potatoes on plate, close up

When the potatoes are done, top them with the black beans, a heaping helping of salsa and a dollop of cool sour cream. Then, devour. So now, when life gives you sweet potatoes, there’s no need to panic – you know just how to handle it.
