Baked Sweet Potato Skins
These cheesy baked sweet potato skins are loaded with fat free black refried beans, salsa and cheddar cheese. Just a few ingredients but they taste SO good!
small sweet potatoes
(about 2 ¼ pounds*)
olive oil cooking spray
Freshly ground black pepper
fat free refried black beans
shredded reduced fat cheddar
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Adjust oven rack to center of oven.
Place whole sweet potatoes on a sheet pan covered in foil or parchment, poke each a few times with a fork. Bake until fork tender, 40-45 minutes.
Allow to cool for 10 minutes. Switch oven from bake to broil.
Meanwhile in a small bowl combine black beans with taco seasoning.
Cut sweet potatoes in half and carefully scoop out flesh with a metal spoon, leaving about ¼-inch of flesh intact.*
Place potatoes, skin side up back on the sheet pan, spray with olive oil, top with pinch salt and pepper, and broil for 2 to 3 minutes.
Remove skins from oven, turn over and fill each with black beans, 1 tbsp salsa and 1 tbsp cheese then return to oven to broil 2 minutes more.
Top with each skin with scallions and cilantro and eat right away.
* Weight of each skin after the potato is scooped out is about 1 1/2 ounces each.
