  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 1/2 cup black beans rinsed and drained
  • 2 scallions thinly sliced
  • 1/2 tsp chipotle chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 cup pepper jack cheese shredded
  • 1/2 avocado diced
  • cilantro


  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Poke holes all over the sweet potato with a fork. Bake directly on the oven rack for about 45 minutes or until soft. 

  2. Cut a slit in the potato and carefully scoop out the flesh, reserving the skin. In a small bowl mash sweet potato. Stir in black beans, scallions, chili powder, and cumin until well combined. Scoop the mixture back into the potato skin and top with shredded pepper jack cheese. 

  3. Place the potato on a baking sheet coated in foil. Put the potato back in the oven for 5 minutes, or until cheese melts. 

  4. Top with diced avocado and cilantro. Serve.
