6 sweet potatoes
1 medium zucchini
1 large onion
2 bell peppers
2 avocados (or guacamole)
1 (15-oz) can black beans (or 1¾ cups cooked black beans)
8 oz meatless chorizo or meatless meat crumbles (optional)
1-2 cloves garlic (or use 1-2 Tbsp minced garlic)
1 Tbsp cumin
1 tsp chili powder
½ tsp cayenne
Black pepper, to taste
6 Tbsp salsa, divided
Fresh cilantro, optional
How to make it
Preheat oven to 375°. While the oven is warming up, scrub the sweet potatoes well with water until clean. (I like to use a veggie brush and a little vinegar.)
Place the sweet potatoes on a baking sheet, and put them in the oven. Allow them to bake for about 40 minutes, or until soft.
While the potatoes are roasting, wash the veggies. Dice the zucchini, onions, peppers, and tomato.
First sauté the garlic and onions until the onions are translucent. Then add the peppers and zucchini. Continue to sauté until the veggies are cooked to desired texture. Add in the spices, and mix until veggies are coated.
If using canned beans, strain off the liquid and rinse. Then add the beans to the skillet.
If using the meatless chorizo, add this into the skillet too. If it’s not already crumbled, crumble it with your spatula while it is cooking. (I do this by slicing it with the spatula until it’s the size that I want.)
Once the veggie mix and the sweet potatoes are finished. Slice the potatoes open with a knife. Mash the inside of the potato to make sure it is cooked thoroughly. Then load the potatoes with the veggie mix. Top with diced tomatoes, fresh cilantro, avocado/guacamole, and salsa.
