There’s a reason why sweet and spicy pair so well and these stuffed sweet potatoes are here to prove it!
Ingredients
  • 4 large sweet potatoes
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) vegetable oil
  • ¼ tsp (1.25 mL) salt
  • ¼ cup (60 mL) ranch dressing
  • ¼ cup (60 mL) sour cream
  • 2 cups (500 mL) cooked shredded chicken
  • ½ cup (125 mL) BBQ sauce
  • 1 cup (250 mL) shredded Monterrey Jack Cheddar
  • ¼ cup (60 mL) chopped chives
  • ¼ cup (60 mL) sliced jalapenos
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Scrub the potatoes to remove all dirt and then rinse and dry thoroughly. Poke several holes into each potato with a fork and then place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Rub the potatoes with oil and generously sprinkle each potato with salt. Bake in the oven for one hour or until tender.
  2. In a small bowl whisk together ranch dressing and sour cream, set aside for later use.
  3. Ten minutes before the potatoes are finished baking, in a medium-sized saucepan mix together cooked shredded chicken and BBQ sauce. Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes or until warmed through.
  4. When the potatoes are finished, remove from the oven and slice each one down the center and fluff with a fork. Top each potato evenly with the barbecue chicken, cheddar, jalapenos and chives. Drizzle with the ranch-sour cream.
