These Taco Stuffed Sweet Potatoes are what a healthy dinner should look like! There is nothing boring going on here – just lots of delicious flavors. We start out with cilantro lime rice and roasted sweet potatoes topped with a veggie/black bean/soyrizo combo. Finish it off with a delicious chipotle yogurt sauce, some avocado & pickled onions. This is healthy, high in protein & super tasty! Ready in 40 minutes and great for meal prep.

Step One: Roast the Sweet Potatoes

Roasting these sweet potatoes literally takes a couple of steps:

  • Clean them.
  • Cut them in half.
  • Coat them in oil & taco seasoning.
  • Place them cut side down on a baking sheet and roast for 30 minutes.

There is no need to flip the potatoes after they are in the oven. Just let the oven & oil do the work. They will come out with a crispy crust and a tender inside.

Step Two: Make the Topping

While the potatoes are roasting you can work on the topping. You will need:

  • avocado oil
  • red onion
  • bell pepper 
  • jalapeño
  • soyrizo
  • taco seasoning
  • black beans 
  • cilantro
  • lime juice

Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, bell pepper, jalapeño, soyrizo & taco seasoning. Cook down for 3 minutes, or until the veggies start to soften. Add the black beans and turn the heat to low. Right before serving add the lime juice & cilantro and stir.

Step Three: Extra Toppings

While not necessary, I do have some options for extra toppings. Some things I like to add to these bowls are:

  • pickled onions – use my recipe to make them at home!
  • avocado slices
  • lime wedges
  • chopped cilantro
  • chipotle yogurt sauce

The chipotle yogurt sauce is one of my faves – you get the creaminess without all of the calories. Just combine some non-dairy yogurt, chipotles in adobo & lime juice. Simple to make and adds the perfect amount of smokiness to these potatoes!

Step Four: Serve

I like to serve these Taco Stuffed Sweet Potatoes with cilantro lime rice. Just cook some rice and add cilantro & lime juice – it is pretty self explanatory 😂

Layer each bowl with the rice and top with 2 sweet potato halves. Spoon on some of the bean/soyrizo mixture and drizzle with chipotle yogurt sauce. Finish each bowl off with avocado slices, pickled onions, more cilantro & lime wedges.

These are also great for meal prepped lunches! Prep them on Sunday and eat them throughout the week!
