I absolutely love these sweet potatoes. I could eat them every single day. These stuffed sweet potatoes are great for family dinners. Usually I boil sweet potatoes, but baking them tastes so much better. It takes a bit longer, but it’s definitely worth the wait.

Black beans and peas make these stuffed sweet potatoes super filling. If you’re looking for ways to cut down on calories, you’re gonna love how filling these are!

One of the best things about these potatoes is the sauce. I made the most delicious avocado sauce that took just a few minutes to make. The sauce is made with 1 avocado, 1/3 cup Greek yogurt, the juice of 1 lime and 1/4 teaspoon salt. These sweet potatoes are comforting, perfectly cheesy, very filling and super healthy.

If you’re looking to make a special dinner for family, friends or yourself, these baked stuffed sweet potatoes are perfect.
