Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

with Pacific Foods Organic Refried Black Beans


4 Medium Sweet Potatoes, scrubbed clean

1 box Pacific Foods Organic Refried Black Beans

1 cup cherry tomatoes, chopped

½ cup Grated Cheddar Cheese

1 Avocado, sliced

3 Scallions, cleaned and thinly sliced

Handful fresh Cilantro leaves (optional)

Crema or Sour Cream for drizzling (optional)


Preheat the oven to 400˚F. Prick potatoes all over with a fork and set on a baking tray. Place on middle rack in oven and bake for about 45 minutes to 1 hour. You want the potatoes to be fork tender; cooking time will depend on size of potatoes.


Meanwhile, add beans to a small saucepan and warm over low heat, stirring occasionally so they don’t burn on the bottom.


When the sweet potatoes are done, set aside until they are cool enough to handle. Slice down the center lengthwise and open up slightly. Top each potato evenly with the warmed beans, cherry tomatoes, avocado slices, scallions and cilantro (if using).  Finish by drizzling with a bit of crema or sour cream, if desired. Enjoy!
