If you feel like you’ve tried every taco that exists, we’ve got a new way for you to get your Tex-Mex fix. This twist on loaded potatoes gives you all the Southwestern flavors you love in an unexpected but totally delicious package. Ground pork and poblano pepper are simmered in a sauce with warm spices and chipotle chili, then spooned over sweet potato halves. Speaking of the spuds, the best part of prep might be that you can microwave them until tender, so forget long and slow oven-roasting—these puppies can be on the table in under half an hour.


Produced in a facility that processes milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, and soybean.

Prick sweet potatoes all over with a fork. Place on a plate. Microwave on high until tender, 8-12 minutes. (TIP: A fork should easily glide into the center of the potatoes. If not tender, continue to microwave in 1 minute increments.) Set aside to cool.
