Mexican Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

by ADMIN on MARCH 27, 2013

I’m a huge fan of quick ‘n’ easy dinners… and this one is no exception!

You can bake the sweet potatoes first; or (if your lazy like me), simply poke holes in them and stick them in the microwave for about 8-10 minutes. Done.

One Potato Meal!
