7 Minute Southwestern Stuffed Sweet Potato

1 medium sweet potato

¾ cup pinto beans, cooked

2 roma tomatoes, cored, seeded, and diced

¼ tsp chili powder

2 Tbsp canned, diced green chilies

1 Tbsp nutritional yeast

1 Place the sweet potato in your microwave and select the "potato" setting. For a medium size sweet potato, I choose "serving size 2" to cook all the way through.

2 In a small bowl, combine the tomato, chili powder, green chilies, and nutritional yeast.

3 Stir in the pinto beans. If using canned beans, make sure to drain and rinse.

4 When the potato is done microwaving, carefully remove. It will be done when a knife easily slides in and out. Cut it in half lengthwise.

5 Use a large spoon to scoop out the potato flesh. Place in the bowl with the filling ingredients and mix together.

6 Restuff the sweet potatoes and enjoy!

Instead of microwaving, you can cook the sweet potato in a preheated oven at 400 degrees F. First prick the sweet potato all over with a fork and bake until tender, 45 to 50 minutes.
