Ingredients
  • 6 organic sweet potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil (I recommend Chosen Foods Spray)
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 15-ounce container Better Bean's Roasted Chipotle Red Beans (see notes if you can't find these beans at your store)
  • 3/4 cup shredded organic Mexican-blend cheese (cheddar, Monterey Jack, colby)
  • 2 cups organic pico de gallo (can buy pre-made or make your own with tomatoes, onions, jalapenos and cilantro)
  • 1 large avocado, diced
  • 2 limes, juiced
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425F. Cut sweet potatoes in half, longways. Drizzle with oil and season with salt and pepper. Arrange on a baking sheet, flat side down. Bake for 30 minutes.
  2. Once the sweet potatoes have cooled enough to handle, scoop out flesh with a spoon and add to a large glass bowl. Make sure you leave all of the skin and a little bit of the potato flesh so the skins are sturdy enough.
  3. Add the chipotle beans to the sweet potato flesh and mash to combine. Scoop the mixture back into the sweet potato skins and top each skin with 1 tablespoon of shredded cheese.
  4. Bake for another 10 minutes, broiling for the last 2 minutes to get the cheese super melty.
  5. Top generously with pico de gallo, avocado and drizzle with plenty of lime juice. Serve and enjoy!
Recipe Notes

Better Bean's Roasted Chipotle Bean Dip is made with Red Beans, Water, Onion, Tomatillo, Apple Cider Vinegar, Olive Oil, Organic Jalapeno Pepper, Lime Juice, Chipotle Pepper, Sea Salt, Garlic. If you can't find Better Bean at your grocery story (it's sold at Whole Foods, Fresh Market, Instacart, Amazon Fresh and many natural food stores), you can simply make your own. Combine 2 cups of red beans with as much onion, tomatillo, jalapeno, chipotle peppers, lime juice, and salt as you like. Simmer until beans are soft and then mash or pulse in your food processor until smooth. This obviously isn't a strict recipe, rather a spiced bean dip that just has to taste good to you! Don't overthink it ;)
