Southwest Twice Baked Sweet Potato

Dana Ramsey


We get some pretty nice size sweet potatoes in my area and my husband and I usually share one because they are so big. We love eating them and make them often. This recipe I created yesterday to go with the grilled pork chops he made. It was amazing and had some nice heat to it. You can adjust to suit your taste.
