Ingredients

  • 6 medium sweet potato
  • 1 cup quinoa, uncooked
  • 2 cup water
  • 3/4 medium bell pepper, red
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 clove garlic
  • 15 ounce black beans, canned
  • 3/4 cup corn, frozen
  • 1/4 cup cilantro
  • 2 teaspoon cumin, ground
  • 2 medium lime

Instructions

  • Wash sweet potatoes and poke with a fork. Bake in the oven at 400 degrees F for 40 minutes, or microwave for 5 minutes for first potato and 3 minutes for each additional potato.
  • When potatoes are cooked, slice in half and scoop out most of the potato, and save for another recipe. Leave a little in the skin.
  • Rinse quinoa well. Add 2 cups of water with quinoa and cook either on the stove top on medium for about 15 minutes, or in a rice cooker.
  • While quinoa cooks, dice pepper, onion, mince garlic and drain and rinse beans.
  • When quinoa is cooked, combine with remaining ingredients, juicing the limes and adding to the mixture.
  • Stuff potatoes with quinoa mixture.
  • Sprinkle with cheese if desired, and broil in the oven until cheese is melted and golden.  (1-2 minutes)
