Dinner Spuds with a Kick But No Kaboodle
Baked potatoes for supper are a throwback everyone loves—that is, everyone but the cook, since the meal can entail prepping a staggering number of fixings. The beauty of this Mexican take on the meal? The additions are scaled back yet rich with flavor. While sweet potatoes bake, you cook garlic, chipotle chilies and black beans on the stove. Stir in some lime zest and juice, then spoon the beans into the split potatoes, topping each with sour cream and cilantro.
