10+ Easy Stuffed Sweet Potatoes for Busy Weeknights
1. Black Bean Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
Black beans make a delicious, filling, and protein-packed stuffing for sweet potatoes. And this recipe is a fantastic vegetarian dinner or side dish.
All you need is a few simple ingredients, including black beans, avocados, and a zesty lime cream sauce.
Together with the potato, it all creates a delicious balance of flavors.
Better yet, if you make the sauce with cashews (the recipe is provided), this dish is totally vegan-friendly.
2. Southwest Stuffed Sweet Potatoes With Black Beans and Quinoa
Southwest flavors give these sweet potatoes a spicy twist.
Between the quinoa, black beans, and potatoes, this recipe is incredibly filling and chock-full of protein.
If you’re looking for an easy and healthy weeknight dinner, these stuffed sweet potatoes would be an ideal option.
Don’t forget to add the ooey-gooey cheese on top! It adds a pleasant salty note that helps to balance the spice.
3. Cheesy Italian Chicken and Spinach Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
Italian chicken and spinach fill these sweet potatoes with lovely flavor and melty cheese.
They’re easy to make and overflowing with crave-able flavors.
Marinara sauce makes this dish ultra comforting, while the chicken and spinach bring plenty of nutrients and color.
These sweet potatoes remind me of delicious chicken parm stuffed inside of a potato. Yum!
4. Loaded Baked Sweet Potato “Healthified”
I know these don’t look healthy, but I swear they’re much lighter than most recipes.
Filled with black beans, melted cheese, and salsa and topped with fat-free Greek yogurt, this skinny version of Mexican stuffed sweet potatoes is to die for.
I think the cheese is what really does it for me. You’ll use a reduced fat Mexican cheese blend, so it’s still tasty but way better for you.
Feel free to use low-fat mozzarella if you prefer.
Add some green onions on top for a little extra flavor, and you’re in for a terrific side dish or a yummy vegetarian meal.
5. Mediterranean Baked Sweet Potatoes
Mediterranean sweet potatoes are a fantastic meal for any plant-based diet or just for adding extra veggies to your day.
Cut the sweet potatoes in half for a quicker baking time. Then, add some savory roasted chickpeas and a flavorful garlic-herb sauce.
Top it all off with a salad of tomatoes and parsley, and this can be on the table in under 30 minutes.
And it’ll disappear off those plates just as fast.
6. Stuffed Sweet Potatoes With Chili
You’ve probably had chili cheese fries, and you’ve likely had a stuffed chili baked potato too.
But have you ever had a chili-stuffed sweet potato? Trust me, that added sweetness really brings out the savory flavors of the chili.
Let the cheese get super melty, and add a dollop of sour cream with some green onions.
This is a fabulous game-day recipe, or just for those chili leftovers.
7. Healthy Vegetarian Taco-Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
If you need a tortilla alternative on your next taco Tuesday, look no further!
I love these vegetarian taco-stuffed sweet potatoes, and I know you will too! They’re quick, easy, and full of beautiful ingredients.
Corn and beans, along with some spectacular seasonings, make a tasty filling. Though you can customize these however you like.
Tasty tip: If you want to keep them healthy, use Greek yogurt instead of sour cream.
8. BBQ Pulled Pork Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
If you thought adding chili to sweet potatoes was good, just wait until you get a taste of these.
Fluffy sweet potatoes with tangy and tender BBQ pulled pork are about as decadent as dinner can get!
And while it looks like a million bucks, if you buy ready-made pork (or use leftovers from your favorite pulled pork recipe), it couldn’t be simpler to whip up.
Kids and adults both love these flavor-bomb potatoes. And since there’s no bread bun involved, it’s gluten-free and low in carbs!
9. BBQ Ground Beef Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
Try this super straightforward stuffed sweet potato recipe when you don’t know what to make for dinner.
Just throw the sweet potatoes in the oven while you cook the ground pork.
Add some extras (onion, carrots, bell peppers, and a quick sauce), and dinner will be on the table in no time.
This homemade BBQ sauce is just as tasty as store-bought, but you can control the end result.
So, feel free to add brown sugar to make it sweet or chilies to add some heat.
10. Apple and Bacon Stuffed Sweet Potatoes With Pomegranate
Apple and bacon stuffed sweet potatoes are an insanely good mix of savory and sweet.
Bacon is one of those ingredients that works with everything. And in this case, it brings a salty, meaty kick to the crisp apples and tender sweet potatoes.
Serve this as a side to your next Sunday or Thanksgiving dinner. Or have it as a light lunch or snack.
Top it with some bright pomegranate seeds, and the dish is done.
11. Maple Pecan Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
I had to save the best for last. And no way could I skip dessert on a list of sweet potato recipes!
These would be so tasty as an alternative to the usual sweet potato casserole. And it’s way easier to put together too.
Maple syrup enhances the sweet flavors of the potato, and the pecans add a welcomed crunch.
If you’re looking for something that’s not covered in marshmallows but still crowd-pleasing, this is your new go-to.
