Stuffed sweet potatoes are the dinner option you've been looking for. They're filling and delicious and the options are endless.

Sweet potatoes are very nutritious; this hearty vegetable supports healthy skin and hair, lowers blood pressure, and has so many more health benefits. These health benefits are due to the iron, fiber, potassium, and vitamins A, C, and B6 in sweet potatoes. Luckily, they are just so easy to prepare and add to a meal.

Just wrap the ingredients for these stuffed sweet potatoes in aluminum foil, put them in the oven, and sit back while they're being made. Afterwards, I chose to top it off with some pico de gallo, but you can really choose any sauce or topping of your choice.
