Mexican Stuffed Sweet PotatoesSunday, March 03, 2013
From our skinny table to yours...
Some of our favorite flavors... cilantro, lime, avocado, cumin... if you haven't noticed ;) Tonight we are indulging in Mexican stuffed sweet potatoes! This healthy dinner will pack many of our favorite things into a sweet and savory sweet potato! How does pulled chicken, black beans, cumin, roasted red peppers, caramelized onions, sweet corn, jalapeno and garlic sound stuffed in a sweet potato? Pretty delicious if you ask us! Join us tonight for a wonderfully healthy and hearty Sunday night meal :)
This one is super easy as well and doesn't require much clean up! We love to cook, but who loves to clean? Not us.... that's for sure! We start dinner off by roasting our sweet potatoes in the oven. Next we simply boil up our chicken, which is a little trick of ours to keep the calorie count at an all time low! In a saute pan caramelize up an onion with both jalapeno and garlic. Once the onions are sugary and brown toss your shredded chicken into the pan and flavor it up with lime juice, cumin, and cilantro. Next, toss in a can of reduced sodium black beans, sweet baby corn and roasted red peppers! You can roast your own or take a little help from the store tonight (as we did) and simply buy a jar at your local grocer. Simply take your sweet potatoes out of the oven, cut them in half and stuff, stuff, stuff away!
