Mexican Stuffed Sweet Potatoes (vegan, oil-free)

Mexican Stuffed Sweet Potatoes….OMG! 

My new favorite 10 minute dinner is officially Mexican stuffed sweet potatoes. These are filling, hearty, delicious, and filled with flavor! I know you will fall in love with this meal idea just as much as I have. 

If you are a newbie to a plant-based diet who doesn’t want a recipe that is too complicated..this is perfect for you! If you’re a plant-based veteran, I promise you’ll love this too. 

For mine, I stuffed my potato with black beans, vegan cashew sour cream, salsa, and guacamole.

✔️100% yummy 

Simple Ingredients

All you need to make the Mexican stuffed sweet potatoes are a few simple, budget friendly ingredients. What are you favorite ingredients to include in your Mexican/taco night?! I would love to know – tell me in the comments! 

I like to buy everything organic if possible, I personally love to shop at Trader Joe’s (check out my vegan Trader Joe’s haul here)! 

Sweet Potato Benefits

  • high in Vitamin A 
  • high in Vitamin C 
  • high in fiber 
  • balances hormones naturally
  • balances blood sugar 
  • supports heart health
  • supports eye health 
  • aids in digestion 
  • promotes weight loss 

I couldn’t believe how yummy this turned out to be. I am used to putting all of my Mexican ingredients into a taco shell, tortilla or into a burrito bowl but never thought to put them in a potato. 

You can use any kind of potato you like but I chose to use a vitamin A rich sweet potato.

Vegan Cashew Sour Cream

Everything I added to the Mexican stuffed sweet potatoes was amazing but I have to say, the vegan cashew sour cream was truly the all-star. You need to try making this sour is vegan, WFPB, sugar-free and oil-free and is made without any gluten. 

I definitely missed a potato or Mexican food with sour cream after I went vegan and this sour cream recipe does the trick for sure! In addition, I would rather have this sour cream any day over dairy sour cream. It’s healthier and cruelty-free…win-win in my humble opinion.

Are you drooling yet?!

If you are hosting a dinner or need to impress guests with a phenomenal vegan meal…you can 100% serve this and win over everyone in the room! 

I have made this for vegans and non-vegans and everyone always gobbles these Mexican stuffed sweet potatoes in no time. 

Also, you could make a Mexican potato bar and have your guests choose which toppings they want to add into their potato – this makes it fun and interactive – even the kids love this!
