Baked sweet potatoes are a great healthy substitute for the normal baked potato. Chorizo instead of bacon gives it a real meaty kick and as much cheese as possible, please! I am making these cheese and chorizo baked sweet potatoes in for the Superbowl party, but thinking about them made me want one for lunch desperately!
I hope you like it:
