I went with the Avocado Chorizo Sweet Potato Skins. I'm addicted to chorizo, so I tend to gravitate to those recipes.
I swapped the onion with half of a red bell pepper and two cloves of garlic (minced). I accidentally only bought 1 avocado instead of 2, so I kind of messed up there. But I kept the same amount of everything else. But I added the juice from the other half of the lime. ....So I guess I didn't keep everything else the same.... Oops. O:-)
The recipe said to scoop out the inside of the sweet potatoes, but didn't say what to do with them. I didn't want to throw it away -- it's too yummy! So I whipped them together with probably about 1/4 - 1/3 cup of honey (I eyeballed it then tasted to test) and lot of ground cinnamon. So we had mashed sweet potatoes as a side. I also threw together a couple of salads.
Two potato skins and the salad were actually enough for each of us to feel full (satisfied). So we had a few skins left over plus the mashed sweet potatoes. I had some of both for my lunch today and it was just as good. Wish I had brought seconds!
The skins appeared that they wouldn't be as satisfying as they really are. I thought they'd be more snacky hence why I did the mashed sweet potatoes and salads. Didn't need both. I was still full a couple hours later.
So this morning I looked up the nutritional value of sweet potatoes. I know that they are good for you for lots of reasons and they're a vegetable and kind of a grain. Didn't realize how much Vitamin A was in a sweet potato; I should have figured since it is orange in color. I'll take sweet potato-anything (fries, baked, etc) over its counterpart any day.
