Loaded "Garbage" Sweet Potato

I love sweet potatoes. You can prepare them sweet or savory. Simple or intricate. Regardless, they are loaded with vitamins which is why I regularly keep them in stock at home. I buy one or two at a time and they are usually eaten by the end of the week though they do last longer if stored properly. They're a great accompaniment to a meal with just some salt or brown sugar.

One evening when I was hungry, low on groceries, and didn't feel like cooking I remembered the sweet potatoes as I was scouring the kitchen for something to satisfy the hunger pangs. This is what I came up with...

Cooked it in the microwave for 3-4 minutes until it was fork tender and topped it with my few fridge findings:
  • Salsa
  • Greek yogurt
  • Green onion
I sprinkled on some chipotle powder as well for more flavor and kick.

Sometimes I like to stuff them with creamed spinach and something crunchy like pretzels or almonds...

Sweet potatoes are so versatile, you can stuff them or serve them with just about any leftovers you can find in your fridge.
