In fact, several of us have thought of striking out on our own with this idea, maybe selling these sweet taco-y taters from trucks, handing them out on every corner. We'd make a fortune, and we think you'll agree once you've eaten this treat down to the skin.

  1. 1

    Microwave the Sweet Potatoes

    Pierce sweet potatoes four to five times with a fork for ventilation.

    Microwave potatoes until easily pierced with knife tip, 10-12 minutes. (Microwaves vary in power; begin checking doneness every minute after 9 minutes.)

    Alternatively, bake potatoes on a foil-lined baking sheet in a 450 degree oven until easily pierced with a knife, 45-60 minutes.

    While potatoes cook, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Halve tortillas. Stack halves and cut into 1/4" strips.

    Peel and halve shallot. Cut into 1/4" dice.

    Drain black beans.

    Core tomato and cut into 1/4" dice.

    Stem jalapeño, seed, remove ribs, and cut into 1/4" dice. Be sure to wash hands, utensils, and cutting board after working with jalapeño.

    Mince cilantro (no need to stem).

  3. 3

    Fry the Tortilla Strips

    Line a plate with a paper towel.

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 3 Tbsp. olive oil and tortilla strips to hot pan. Stir constantly until crispy, 2-4 minutes.

    Remove to towel-lined plate.

    Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  4. 4

    Cook the Beans

    Return pan used to fry tortilla strips to medium-high heat.

    Add shallot to hot pan. Stir occasionally until softened, 3 minutes.

    Add beans and 1/2 cup water. Stir occasionally until water has evaporated, 3-5 minutes.

    Season with 1/4 tsp. salt.

    Remove from burner.

  5. 5

    Finish the Sweet Potatoes

    Cut sweet potatoes lengthwise 3/4 of the way through, leaving 1/4 bottom of potato intact.

    Place on prepared baking sheet. Season with taco seasoning and a pinch of salt and pepper, and top with half the cheese (reserve remaining for garnish).

    Roast until cheese is melted, 3-5 minutes.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, garnishing with tomato, tortilla strips, jalapeño, cilantro, remaining cheese, and sour cream. Bon appétit!
