Loaded Vegetarian Sweet Potatoes

The filling in these bad boys is simply Portobello mushrooms cooked with yellow onions and a heady mix of Mexican-themed spices. It’s hearty and satisfying with a hint of heat and acidity, and the shrooms’ glorious flavor profile is slightly reminiscent of chorizo.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
step 2
Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment and spray it lightly with Nonstick Nonstick Cooking Spray (as needed).

Scrub your Sweet Potatoes (4) and pat them dry. Pierce each potato 2 or three times with a fork, and place them on the prepared baking sheet.
step 4
Roast for 50 minutes to 1 hour until the potatoes are very tender. Heads up, if you’re using bigger potatoes, they may take up to 1 hour and 15 minutes.
