Stuffed Sweet Potatoes Three Ways

Sweet or savory, we have got you covered. Stuffed to the brim, these variations will not disappoint.


Meaty Chicken

  • 1 medium cooked sweet potato
  • 3 tablespoons shredded chicken
  • 3 tablespoons cooked spinach
  • 2 tablespoons salsa
  • a dash of garlic powder & hot sauce

Savory Southwest (This recipe is vegan!)

  • 1 medium cooked sweet potato
  • 3 tablespoons black beans
  • 2 tablespoons corn
  • 1 tablespoon diced red or green pepper
  • a dash of chili powder & cumin

Sweet Banana (This recipe is vegan!)

  • 1 medium cooked sweet potato
  • 1 tablespoon nut butter
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 tablespoon sunflower seeds
  • a dash of cinnamon


  1. Slice open the middle of the cooked sweet potato to form a pocket for other ingredients. Fluff the sweet potato by scraping the inside of the potato with a fork.
  2. Layer on the desired toppings. Serve warm.


  • Kids love a toppings bar! Put out small bowls of toppings and let them make their own creations.
  • In addition to the toppings shown, try leftover chili; stir-fried or steamed vegetables; caramelized pineapple with ham; nonfat plain yogurt; sunflower seeds or other nuts; peas; sautéed apples; or even a poached egg.
  • Sweet potatoes are very versatile. Bake extra and use the leftovers for easy meal prep.
