Ingredients

  • 4 8 ounce sweet potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 16 ounce can baked beans with brown sugar, partially drained
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 whole scallions, diced (reserving some for garnish)
  • 10 ounce tube pork Chorizo
  • 1/2 cup sour cream

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. 
  • Pierce the potatoes 3-4 times with a fork; rub all over with the oil. Transfer to a baking sheet and bake for approximately 65 minutes, until tender. Let cool 10-15 minutes.
  • Slice the potatoes in half lengthwise; scoop out most of the flesh and transfer to a medium bowl. Add in the baked beans, cumin, chili powder, a sprinkle of salt and pepper, and most of the scallions. Mix to combine.
  • Divide mixture among the potato skins. Transfer back onto the baking sheet and then back into the oven for another 15 minutes.
  • In the meantime, heat a small skillet over medium. Add the chorizo and cook, stirring to break up the meat until browned and cooked through, about 8 minutes. Drain off the fat.
  • Top the potato skins with the cooked chorizo, sour cream, and reserved scallions. Serve and enjoy!
