Ingredients

  • 1 sweet potato medium sized, scrubbed clean
  • 1/4 cup salsa
  • 1/2 cup black beans rinsed and drained

  • Using a fork, prick the potato about 5 times hitting different areas of the potato. 
  • Place potato on microwave safe plate and microwave for 4 minutes, turning the potato over half way through.
  • Potato is done when soft to touch and is easily pierced with a fork. Cook in one minute increments until done. The length of time will vary based upon the size of the potato. 
  • Make a slit in the top of the sweet potato and gently push the ends of the potato towards the middle to make an opening in the top.
  • Using a fork, gently fluff the inside of the potato.
  • Mix salsa into the fluffed sweet potato flesh.
  • Layer beans, cheese and guacamole on top. Enjoy!

Notes

Add 4 minutes to the initial cook time for an additional potato.
