Savory black bean stuffed sweet potatoes topped with fresh lime juice, guacamole, cilantro and green onions. This recipe is meal-prep friendly, requires minimal effort, and is super delicious!


  • 4 sweet potatoes
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 can corn kernels
  • 1 bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup salsa (optional)


  • Lime juice (highly recommend)
  • Guacamole
  • Cilantro
  • Green onions
  • Vegan cheese


  1. Preheat oven to bake sweet potatoes (or air fry, see above for instructions). Drizzle olive oil on the sweet potato skins and use your hands or a brush to lightly coat them.
  2. Bake sweet potatoes for 40-60 minutes. Bake time will depend on the size of the sweet potato.
  3. Meanwhile, put a pan on medium heat. Add olive oil and sauté onions for 5 minutes. Add black beans, corn, and bell pepper. Season with garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper. Cook for another 5-7 minutes.
  4. Once sweet potatoes are tender enough to poke with a fork, let them cool off for a few minutes. Cut vertically down the middle and use a fork to fluff the inside of the sweet potato.
  5. Stuff with black bean/corn/bell pepper mix. Add fresh lime juice, guacamole, green onions, cilantro, and anything else your heart desires. Enjoy!


*Keeps well in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

*Make sure to make guacamole the day of.

*Add lime right before eating.
