  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon of chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of smoked paprika

  • 1/2 cup of freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/4 cup of fresh cilantro, chopped

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Pierce the sweet potatoes several times with a fork and wrap in aluminum foil. Bake for 45-60 minutes or until tender.
  3. In a medium skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

  7. Fill the sweet potato skins with the mixture and place back on the baking sheet.
  8. Sprinkle shredded cheese over the top of each filled sweet potato.
  9. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
