      Comfort food. A complete meal. I added 2 cloves garlic, dried oregano and parsley. Skipped the salt and used a fresh chili`s and rinsed the beans to lower the sodium. Topped with yogurt and lots of cilantro! This makes enough for 6 halves generously filled. Serving more like 6 sides or 3 as a meal. Thanks.

      Yummy!! We are sweet potato fanatics and love just about any recipe that uses them. This quick, easy, and very healthy recipe was no exception...we loved it! To save time, I pricked the skin of the sweet potatoes with a fork and cooked them in the microwave, on "high" for about 15 mins. I topped them with sour cream and lots of cilantro. Thank you for sharing this wonderful is definitely a keeper!
