Chili Stuffed Sweet Potato

February 14, 2012

I’m sure many of you will be dining out tonight in celebration of Valentine’s Day. Seeing as I’m flying out to Austin, TX at the crack of dawn tomorrow and I’ll likely work late tonight, my husband and I will probably order pizza and stuff our faces  while finishing up the second hour of Downton Abbey on the couch. (As a side note, season two is painfully cheesy, but I still can’t turn away!)

If you are like us- in need of something quick and easy for dinner tonight- this recipe should do the trick. It also makes leftover chili a tad more enticing.

Ingredients: (serves one to two)

1 large sweet potato

1 pot leftover chili (use any recipe you like or try this vegan coconut chili)

sour cream

cilantro, rinsed and chopped

Directions: First cook the sweet potato. I typically microwave mine until it’s soft.

Share with your valentine. Slice in half or serve with two forks.

A super simple dinner for two.
