Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

New Dangle Style
I had these sweet sterling silver drop settings sitting in a drawer for a very long time with the intent of making these simple, pretty earrings! 
I finally got to do so! They come in different sizes and stones. Very fun, but not easy to photograph! Available at Etsy.

Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
These were delicious! We started out baking halved sweet potatoes until tender.
We mixed black beads, corn and diced jalepeno peppers. We added chili powder and shredded cheddar jack cheese.

The sweet potatoes got half hollowed out and that filling was added to the mix. Then stuffed into the potato halves.
Since we are gluttons for cheese, plenty more was added on top before baking again until the cheese was browned! 
The results were mouth watering, healthy, vegetarian and gluten free!


Thank you for stopping by! Have a beautiful week. ~ Val

    Your new earrings are wonderful and you actually did a great job at photographing them as well. I love how they are all displayed together.

    Can you believe next week is Thanksgiving already? I don't know where the time has gone.
