Ingredients
  1. 4 medium sized sweet potatoes
  2. 1/2 cup fat free Greek yogurt (or light sour cream)
  3. 1 tsp taco seasoning
  4. 1 tsp olive or canola oil
  5. 1 red bell pepper, diced
  6. 1/2 red onion, diced
  7. 1 tsp chili powder
  8. 1/2 tsp paprika or smoked paprika
  9. 1/2 tsp cumin
  10. a pinch of salt
  11. 1-1/3 cups canned black beans, rinsed and drained
  12. 1/2 cup mild or spicy salsa
  13. 1/2 cup reduced fat Mexican cheese blend
  14. 1/4 cup chopped scallions or cilantro
Instructions
  1. Poke holes in the potato with a fork, cook on your microwave’s potato setting until potatoes are soft and cooked through (about 8-10 minutes on high for 4 potatoes). If you don't have a microwave, bake about 45 minutes at 400°F.
  2. Combine yogurt and taco seasoning in a small bowl, mix well.
  3. Heat oil in a medium pot over medium heat. Add peppers, onions, chili powder, paprika, cumin and salt; cook until the onions have caramelized slightly, about 5 minutes. Add black beans, stir to combine and heat through (about another 5 minutes).
  4. Slice the potato lengthwise down the middle or as I did in the photo, use a fork to pierce the top in an oval shape, then remove the top of each potato. Top with 2 tbsp shredded cheese, 1/3 cup of black bean mixture, 2 tbsp Greek yogurt mixture and 2 tbsp salsa of salsa. Enjoy!
