Sweet potato skins are my kind of “bar food.” They’re filled with flavorful ingredients such as onions, garlic and cheese, but they’re also packed with nutrition. (Sweet potatoes are one of the most nutritious vegetables around and black beans are loaded with protein and fiber.) These are a wonderful game-day snack, but they also make a satisfying vegetarian meal.
When I make these, I like to offer a whole lot of toppings – guacamole, salsa, sour cream, chopped cilantro and sliced green onions and olives – for people to load up their own plate as they like. You can leave out the cheese to make these vegan or offer the cheese as a topping for those who want it.
