Mexi Baked Sweet Potato

  • SERVES: 1
  • PREP: 10 minutes
  • TOTAL TIME: 1 hour 15 minutes

Baked potato bar has a whole new meaning.

The perfect blend of sweet and savory! This loaded Mexican sweet potato is a vibrant, flavorful meal-in-one: you’ve got the creaminess from the avocado, bite from the onions and scallions, and the juiciness of the tomatoes. It's super filling and technically "healthy" since it's all veggies, so eat as much as you want. If you’re looking to take this up a notch, crunch up some tortilla chips over the top - you really can’t go wrong!
