*I modified this recipe!
Loaded Baked Sweet Potato-Serves 2, or cut in half to serve 4 as a side dish
2 large sweet potatoes
1/2 cup plain Greek Yogurt (fat-free)
1 tsp. taco seasoning
1 tsp. olive oil
1/2 cup roasted red bell peppers (I used the jarred kind, found on the olive aisle!)
1/2 red onion, diced
1 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. cumin
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 small can green chilies
Toppings: (use amount you prefer!)
Verde salsa (green salsa)
1.) Bake sweet potatoes in your microwave.
2.) Heat oil in large saucepan. Add red bell peppers, onion, spices, black beans, and green chilies. Cook until heated through and onions begin to soften.
3.) Mix Greek Yogurt with taco seasoning and stir well!
4.) Assemble sweet potatoes. Cut open baked sweet potatoes and top with bean mixture. Then add cheese, green onions, Greek Yogurt topping, salsa, and a light sprinkle of sea salt on top.
