Maybe you think this is too much cheese for one potato? No such thing as too much cheese :) These are some great flavor combinations for this potato...makes a filling meal for one or two.

I prefer my sweet potatoes savory and this is a yummy way serve them. I loved the addition of the bell peppers and chicken. These are hearty enough for a meal, but could be cut into smaller pieces for an appetizer. And there's no such thing as too much cheese! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
