  • Summary

    A healthy, filling, vegan, and gluten free meal by way of a sweet potato. There's protein from the beans and cheese, and fiber in the corn, beans, avocado, and sweet potato keep you full and satisfied for hours. The rich creaminess of the avocado cream adds healthy fats and luscious creaminess to the hearty, texture-stuffed potato. Recipe is written for 1 sweet potato, but double, triple, quadruple, etc. the recipe as needed. Avocado crema portion of the recipe makes more than you'll need for 1 sweet potato, but I prefer to use 1 avocado and 1 lime rather than halving them. I use the extra as a guacamole-like dip with chips. If you're making 3-4+ sweet potatoes, you won't have any issue using it up right away.

    Ingredients

    • Sweet Potato and Filling 1 medium/large sweet potato heaping 1/2 cup corn and black bean salsa (I used Trader Joe's Cowboy Caviar Salsa, or use a similar chunky corn and bean salsa; or use about 1/4 cup cooked/canned black beans and 1/4 cup cooked frozen/canned corn) salt and pepper, optional and to taste heaping 1/4 cup shredded cheese blend (Mexican, Pepper Jack, Monterrey, vegan cheese, etc.) Avocado Crema 1 medium ripe Hass avocado, peeled and de-seeded, reserving a small portion for garnishing 1/4 cup sour cream (or vegan sour cream) 2 tablespoons lime juice (from about medium 1 lime) pinch salt, to taste water, if necessary cilantro, optional for garnishing
