  • Author: Kelsey

Ingredients

Scale
  • 3 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 4 cups of cooked, shredded chicken breast
  • ⅓ cup salsa
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle powder
  • Salt and pepper
  • ½ cup dry roasted cashews
  • 3 tablespoons hot water
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Line baking sheet with foil and add sweet potatoes to the pan.  
  • Pierce sweet potatoes about 4-6 times all over with a fork and bake them for 50-70 minutes or a fork can easily be pierced all the way through. (the time varies so much depending on the size of your sweet potato).
  • When the sweet potatoes are almost done, place a skillet over medium heat.
  • Once warm, add oil to the pan along with onion and garlic.
  • Saute for 3-4 minutes or until lightly browned.  Set aside.
  • Once sweet potatoes are cooked, slice them in half lengthwise and scoop out most of the flesh, leaving a small layer so it can maintain its shape.
  • In a large bowl combine sweet potato flesh, cooked onion and garlic, shredded chicken, salsa and chipotle powder.  
  • Mix thoroughly to combine, then season to taste with salt and pepper.  
  • Scoop mixture back into the sweet potato skins and place them back into the 400 degree oven for 10 minutes.
  • To make cashew lime crema, combine cashews, hot water and lime juice in a blender and blend on for about 3 minutes, or until smooth and creamy.  Season with salt to taste.
  • Drizzle crema on sweet potatoes and enjoy!
