If you’re here for the Mexican Stuffed Sweet Potatoes, read on!
Who doesn’t love a stuffed sweet potato?
They are fresh tasting, hearty and delicious! As a bonus they are naturally gluten-free and grain-free (just watch what they are stuffed with if eating out!).
These are stuffed with our favorite Mexican Veggie Black Bean Mix which we’ve been making for years and which works equally well on a sweet potato, quesadilla, burrito or taco!
The versatility of the mix makes if perfect for feeding a family with different tastes or preferences.
The Veggie Black Bean Mix simply 5 real, whole food ingredients + spices.
The 5 main ingredients are: carrots, bell peppers, mushrooms, squash, and black beans and in this option, we included sweet potatoes.
The Mexican Spice Blend is simply a mix of cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper. It’s not too spicy because that’s how my family prefers it but feel free to amp it up to taste!
The veggies and beans are sauteed and cooked up with the spice blend.
Then all you do is top the baked sweet potato with it… couldn’t be easier!
Also tastes great topped with avocado, guacamole or fresh cilantro.
We love this meal not only because it tastes great, but because the vegetable bean mix can be prepped ahead or fully made ahead and heated up when you’re ready to eat.
So, it is perfect for days when you’re out and about and come home hungry ,or for days when people are eating at different times.
This is easy, make-ahead meal is also a great gluten-free, grain-free way to enjoy Taco Tuesday!
And leftovers make a great lunch the next day!
Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
