Ingredients

  • 4 medium sweet potatoes or yams (about 8oz each)
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, chopped (about 3/4 cup)
  • 1 (15oz) can S&W® Jalapeño Black Beans with Lime Juice (do not drain)
  • 1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 3 green onions, sliced

Directions

Scrub potatoes and pierce several places with a fork. Place on microwavable plate; microwave on high 10 minutes or until you can easily pierce them with a knife; set aside.
In a 12-inch skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Cook pepper 3 to 4 minutes, until tender; stir in beans. Reduce heat and simmer 5 to 8 minutes, until heated through and slightly thickened, stirring occasionally.
Split potatoes open and spoon ½ cup bean mixture evenly over each. Top each with 2 tablespoons cheese and green onions. Serve.

Serving Suggestion: This is a delicious vegetarian dish. Serve with your favorite toppings: cilantro, sour cream or Greek yogurt, and bacon crumbles (if vegetarian is not required).
