Chicken Black Bean Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

We love recipes where you get to “stuff” something. They are just so much more fun to eat; for both kids and adults alike! Not only are recipes like this easy to make, but they are also a great way to sneak in extra nutrients.

Our Chicken Black Bean Bowl comes ready with tender chicken, high-fiber black beans and rice, and lots of Mexican flavors. Serving them atop a sweet potato helps amplify the nutrition by serving up vitamins such as A and C, which are essential in keeping our immune systems strong. And who doesn’t want a healthy immune system during the winter? Being sick is just no fun!

Sweet potatoes are also very cheap, so you can create this well-rounded meal for 2 for less than $3.00 per serving! You can prepare the potatoes in advance to make the meal come together even quicker, too! And let’s not forget about meal prep. You can very easily prepare this recipe in advance and pack it for lunch during the work or school day.

But, the topping combos don’t need to end with our Chicken Black Bean Bowl! You could also use our Steak Black Bean Bowl as we did in this recipe here. Or give your potatoes a breakfast twist by using one of our Breakfast Scramble Bowls. Brinner is one of our favorite things to serve up around here!

So, now the real question is, “Dinner or breakfast”? Which would you rather make this for?
