Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

  • Author: Chef Julie Harrington, RD

  • Category: lunch, dinner



1 large sweet potato
1 teaspoon chili powder
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1/2 cup black beans
2 (2.6 oz.) packets of Starkist Chicken Creations BOLD Buffalo Style
1/4 cup mozzarella cheese

For the Avocado Lime Sauce:
1/2 avocado
1/4 cup plain yogurt
1/2 lime, juiced
2 tablespoons cilantro
23 tablespoons water (more if needed)
salt and pepper, to taste.


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, cut the sweet potatoes in half lengthwise, and place both halves flat side down on the baking sheet. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes.

Once the sweet potato halves are finished cooking, remove from the oven. Let cool enough to be able to handle. Scoop out the inside of the sweet potato halves and place in a bowl. Add the chili powder and garlic powder; mix together. Fold in the black beans.

Scoop the mixture back into the sweet potato skins. Top each sweet potato with one packet of Starkist Chicken Creations BOLD Buffalo Style and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Place back in the oven for about 8-10 minutes or until heated through.

While sweet potatoes are cooking, combine avocado, yogurt, lime, cilantro, and water in a blender or a small food processor. Blend until smooth. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Remove sweet potatoes from the oven and drizzle with avocado sauce.
