Loaded Sweet Potatoes

Our recipe for Loaded Sweet Potatoes is as perfect for weeknight dinners as it is for casual entertaining. These loaded potatoes are super easy to make. The potatoes need to be cooked ahead of time, so if there's not enough time to oven bake, the microwave will do the trick. If you're entertaining, the potatoes and bean mixture can be made ahead of time and heated up just before serving. Cumin and chipotle offer a great savory flavor to contrast the sweetness of the potato. Black beans, corn and red pepper make a delicious and colorful topping.
