Ingredients: 4 small sweet potatoes1 can (15 oz) black beans, rinsed and dried3/4 cup cornHoney-Lime Dressing:2 limes, juicedzest of 1 lime2 tablespoons of honey1 tablespoon of oil1/4 teaspoon salt1/4 teaspoon pepper
Preheat oven to 400 F. Wash and dry the sweet potatoes. Add 1/2 cup of water to a medium sized baking dish. Place the potatoes in the dish and bake for 40-50 minutes. While the potatoes are baking, start to prepare your dressing. Mix together lime juice, zest, honey, oil, salt and pepper.
When sweet potatoes are done, allow them to cool for 10 minutes. Then cut them in half lengthwise Scoop out the insides and cut it into little chunks.
In a medium bowl, add potato chunks, beans and corn. Mix thoroughly. Then toss with the honey-lime dressing. Fill the sweet potato skins with the mixture. You’ll have leftover potato mixture so eat that on the side and enjoy!
Is it weird that I also love how colorful they are?
