The thing with vegetarian meals is that the end result can be not very filling. These stuffed sweet potatoes are full of protein from the black beans, cheese, and healthy fats from avocados. The result? A filling vegetarian meal that doesn’t leave you looking in the fridge for a burger.

Cilantro

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Take sweet potatoes and stab holes into potatoes with a fork or knife. Wrap in foil and cook in oven for one hour, or until cooked through. 
2. Take cooked sweet potatoes and scrape out. Take 1/2 cup of sweet potato filling and mash in bowl. (Store remaining cooked sweet potato.)In a separate bowl mix black beans, corn, salsa, diced red pepper, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper with mashed sweet potato.
