Directions

  1. Scrub sweet potatoes really well so they are clean. Add to your slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for 2-3 hours or on low for 6-8 hours.
  2. Meanwhile, stir together all other ingredients in a medium bowl. Leave about 1/2 cup of cheese and the cilantro for garnish.
  3. When potatoes are super tender, remove from the slow cooker. Let them cool until you can handle them. Then slice off the top of the potatoes and use a spoon to scoop out the filling from each potato (save for other stuff)!
  4. Fill potatoes completely full and even overflowing a bit with the black bean and corn mixture.
  5. Return stuffed potatoes to the slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for another 30 minutes to heat ingredients and melt cheese.
  6. Top potatoes with extra cheese and fresh cilantro. Serve while warm!
