Baked sweet potatoes stuffed in Mexican style with corn and mozzarella

As a snack or as a base for those who are fans of vegetables and cheeses, but it goes great with a slice of meat for those who want extra protein.

The sweet potato started to be quite appreciated among Romanians, once for the special taste it has, but also for the countless ways in which it can be cooked!

This time I chose to combine it with corn, beans and mozzarella with slightly Mexican nuances, not the other way around, but the others for which I prepared them do not eat as spicy as me.

Stay tuned for the list of ingredients and how to prepare it and you will get an excellent dish!

Ingredient:

  • 3-4 medium sweet potatoes (1-1.2 kg)
  • 50 g of Philadelphia cream cheese
  • 50 ml of olive oil
  • 200 g canned corn well drained
  • 200 g canned red beans well drained
  • 1-2 cloves of finely chopped garlic
  • 1 red hot pepper (preferably)
  • 100 g mozzarella
  • 1/2 bunch parsley
  • 2 green onions
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Method of preparation:

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

Wash and cut the sweet potatoes in half lengthwise. We put them in a tray lined with baking paper and cover them with a foil or a lid, then leave them in the oven for 40-45 minutes or until they soften well. After baking, let them cool.

Heat a pan in which we put the olive oil, corn and sauté until well browned over medium heat.

Reduce the temperature and add the finely chopped garlic and sliced ​​pepper, continue to cook for another minute, then add the beans and turn off the heat.

Remove the pulp from the sweet potatoes so that a thin layer of potatoes remains on the skin. Put the potato core in a bowl next to the cream cheese and mix well.

Add the corn composition with beans, finely chopped parsley, sliced ​​onion, half the amount of diced mozzarella, salt and pepper if needed.

Fill the potato peels with the filling obtained, sprinkle the rest of the mozzarella over the filling and put it back in the oven for another 8-10 minutes or until the mozzarella browns slightly.

Simple, tasty and filling, and if we take out the cream cheese and mozzarella, they can also be eaten by vegans or fasters. But I don't hold you back, I wish you good work and good appetite!
