I have for some time been fixated on sweet potatoes. They're one of those fixings that I have in my storeroom each and every week and we never become ill of.

Some portion of what I adore about sweet potatoes is their flexibility. You can cook them a huge amount of various ways and they can be utilized in servings of mixed greens, bowls, as a side and then some.

Be that as it may, sweet potatoes in our home are typically not the superstar. They're there as a little something extra or a side. As of not long ago. Since when I prepared these Mexican Quinoa Stuffed Sweet Potatoes… everything changed.

Sweet potatoes are pressed with a huge amount of nutrients and minerals and are what I would consider a "regular superfood" which means they're modest, they're supplement thick and they're only an inside and out whiz.
