Feel free to cut sweet potatoes in half if very large or to cut down baking time. Bake, skin-side up on parchment-lined sheet pan.
This recipe is very adaptable. Feel free to add cooked black beans for protein. Just make sure the filling is flavorful- so if adding more ingredients, you may need more salt and spices. 😉
Feel free to sub other veggies for the ones listed.
After the sweet potatoes are stuffed, you can bake them just as they are, on the same sheet pan without the Mole Sauce if you prefer. Or refrigerate them for later, pulling them out and reheating as you need them. They should last 3-4 days in the fridge.
The Mole Sauce is not authentic or traditional– it is a quick “cheater” version, but with good flavor.
