Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 10 minutes
Servings 4 servings


  • 4 unpeeled sweet potatoes
  • 1 can black beans, drained
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced thinly
  • 1 cup shredded chicken
  • 1/4 cup chopped jalapeños
  • hot sauce
  • 1 cup shredded pepperjack cheese


  • Preheat your oven to 400ºF and pierce each sweet potato several times with a fork. Place the sweet potatoes on a baking sheet and bake until tender, about 45 minutes.
  • Once potatoes are tender, cut each potato in half and scoop out the potato, leaving an inch border around the entire potato. Place the potato flesh in a bowl and add in the black beans, salt, pepper, red onion, shredded chicken, and jalapeños. Add in hot sauce to taste.
  • Stuff the potato skins with the filling. Top with the cheese and place back into the oven to melt the cheese, about 5 minutes. Serve.


You can substitute cheddar for the pepper jack if you wish.
No need to cut fresh jalapeños for this recipe. Canned is fine.
