Stage 5

  • 1 whole sweet potato, cleaned and halved
  • 1 1/2 tbsp cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup pinto beans, drained and rinsed
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Cooking spray

Preheat oven to 400F. Scrub clean and dry a small sweet potato. Cut potato in half and cut the ends off in order to stand the potato up in an oven safe dish, spray the skin of the potato with cooking spray. Bake for 30-40 minutes. Remove from oven and cool slightly. Scoop out the inside of the potato and place in a bowl, mash with Worcestershire, salt and pepper. Mix in most of the cheese and beans (trying to leave the beans whole). Add mixture back into the sweet potato skin, top with remaining cheese. Back for an additional 5-10 minutes.
