Feeling indulgent on a cleanse is not the norm, but trust me when I say that these stuffed sweet potatoes will feel like a cheat day without actually causing you to fall off the wagon.
The delicious combination of taco-inspired fillings makes these guys packed full of flavor, and the whole shebang couldn’t be easier. Just let the beans simmer on the stove while the sweet potatoes are cooking, then add toppings and dinner is served.
They key to a great baked sweet potato is giving it plenty of cook time. The longer you cook them, the more the natural sweetness seeps out of the potatoes (and into your mouth.) Since a long cook time doesn’t always lend itself to those after work hangry feels, I like to meal prep these taters on Sunday night, wrap them in foil in the fridge, then gently rewarm in the oven when it’s time to eat.

Pro tip: make this meal as spicy or mild as you like. My husband, who believes there’s no such thing as too much spice, loads up the beans with all the jalapeños and more cayenne pepper. For a milder approach, omit the ribs and seeds from the jalapeños and add a touch less cayenne.
