Spicy Black Bean Stuffed Sweet Potatoes with Avocado Lime Sauce

Spicy Black Bean Stuffed Sweet Potatoes with Avocado Lime Sauce

In June the evenings are still pretty cool, and what sounds good is a dinner idea that's served warm, but still has flavors that signal the impending arrival of summer. I think these Spicy Black Bean Stuffed Sweet Potatoes with Avocado Lime Sauce from Dishing Up the Dirt sound perfect for spring-into-summer dinners, and if it does happen to be getting too hot for the oven where you are just use my favorite summer trick and cook the sweet potatoes in a toaster oven. This recipe has so many of the flavors I love; sounds like a perfect Meatless Monday dish to me.

I had the wild idea of cutting up some string cheese and stirring in the last half hour of cooking, for bites of melted cheese throughout the dish, but skip the cheese if you want a dish that's vegan.   Read more >
