Ingredients
  

  • 2 large sweet potatoes
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • 8 oz. chorizo
  • 1 poblano pepper diced
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup green onions sliced
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • sour cream for topping

Instructions
 

  • Rub the sweet potatoes with olive oil, sprinkle with salt, and place directly on oven rack. Bake at 400° for 45 minutes to 1 hour until skins are crispy.
  • While sweet potatoes are baking, cook chorizo and poblano in a large skillet, draining excess fat. When poblanos are soft, add garlic and 1/4 cup green onions and saute for 1 minute, then remove from heat.
  • Use a fork to pierce a line across the top of each sweet potato, then squeeze the ends so the potatoes pop open.
  • Stir 1/2 cup cheddar into the chorizo mixture, then stuff equally between the potatoes. Top with remaining cheddar, green onions, and sour cream.
