  • 2 large sweet potatoes, sliced in half lengthwise
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • 250 grams dry-cured spicy chorizo sausage, diced
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ¼ cup finely chopped fresh cilantro


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Brush cut side of sweet potatoes with olive oil and season with a pinch of salt. Place cut side down on parchment lined baking sheet. Bake until tender, about 40 minutes.
  3. About 10 minutes before the sweet potatoes are done baking; heat a frying pan over medium-low heat. Add chorizo, cook and stir for 10 minutes.
  4. Top each sweet potato half with chorizo, sour cream, and cilantro. Serve immediately.

Helpful Hints:

  • To tell if a sweet potato is cooked, insert the tip of a small knife into the thickest part of the potato, if it slides in with no resistance it’s done cooking.
  • Green onion can be substituted for cilantro as a garnish.
  • Dry-cured spicy chorizo sausage can be found at the deli counter at the grocery store, usually next to the salami.
