Stuffed Sweet Potatoes with Guacamole and Black Beans

Serves 4


  • Preheat the oven to 450°F. Cut potatoes in half lengthwise. Toss with 1 Tbsp. oil, ½ tsp. salt, ¼ tsp. cayenne, and ¼ tsp. cumin on a rimmed baking sheet. Arrange cut side up and roast until fork-tender, about 25 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, heat remaining 1 Tbsp. oil in a medium skillet over medium. Add onion and half of garlic and cook, stirring, until onion starts to release moisture and turns translucent, 2–3 minutes. Add beans, broth, ¼ tsp. salt, and remaining ¼ tsp. cayenne and ¼ tsp. cumin and cook until liquid is reduced and beans soften, about 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, mash avocado and remaining garlic in a medium bowl with a fork until smooth. Stir in 2 Tbsp. cilantro, 1 Tbsp. lime juice, and remaining ¼ tsp. salt.
  • Add spinach and remaining 1 Tbsp. lime juice to bean mixture. Continue to cook until spinach wilts, about 30 seconds.
  • Using the back of a spoon, gently push down in the center of potato halves to create a divot. Spoon bean mixture into potato halves, then top evenly with 2 Tbsp. avocado mixture, queso fresco, and remaining 1 Tbsp. cilantro. Serve with tortilla chips, if using, and remaining avocado dip alongside.
