Ingredients

  • 4 medium sized sweet potatoes or yams
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup kosher salt
  • 2 cups cooked pulled pork
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup your favorite barbecue sauce
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
  • 1/2 cup crumbled cooked bacon
  • 1/2 cup candied pecans
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh scallions

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Rub each potato with olive oil and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment. Sprinkle with salt and prick the skin a few times with a fork to allow the steam to escape.
  3. Bake the potatoes for 40-50 minutes or until fork tender.
  4. While the potatoes bake, whisk together the sour cream, honey and chipotle chili powder. Set aside.
  5. Cut a slit lengthwise in the potato and gently squeeze the two ends together to open up the potato.
  6. Fluff the inside of the potato lightly with a fork and season with salt and pepper. Fill with 1/2 cup pulled pork.
  7. Sprinkle 1/4 cup cheese over the pork and drizzle with 1/4 cup barbecue sauce.
  8. Top with 1/4 cup of the sour cream mixture, 1/4th of the bacon, pecans and scallions. Repeat with remaining potatoes.
  9. Serve immediately.
