Chorizo and Cheddar Baked Sweet Potato


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:
