Sweet meets spicy in this Southwestern-inspired dish that might have you seeing how much yumminess can possibly be stuffed inside a sweet potato! Grab a decently big sweet potato, and fill it with black beans, chicken, and our zesty Reduced Fat Mexican Blend Shredded Cheese. You'll need four sweet potatoes to make enough for 8 hearty servings of this play on nachos. It works great for a group dinner, or if you're cooking for one, you'll have enough for the whole week! And the best part? It takes just thirty minutes to make!
