Sweet Potato Spud Ole!

A couple of years ago I discovered the Spud Ole from McAlister’s Deli. It’s a baked potato filled with chili, cheese, jalapenos, and sour cream. Ridiculously delicious. So good in fact that last yearΒ I started making them at home when we had leftover chili. Well this year I have been kind of obsessed with sweet potatoes. And in the past few months I have been busy stuffing my sweet potatoes with all kinds of goodness. Including swapping out russet potatoes for sweet potatoes in my Spud Ole!

The Sweet Potato Spud Ole! Just a baked sweet potato filled with chili (our favorite recipe here) and then topped with cheddar jack cheese, plain Greek yogurt (or you could use sour cream), and jalapenos. I’m kind of a wimp when it comes to spice so those jalapenos are definitely the tame kind, but I love them!

And because I love progression photos… here’s the masterpiece as it comes together!

I know I say this about all the recipes I share, but this is really so delicious. I make plenty of things that I don’t share on this blog because they were just okay. Or they were good, but not good enough that I make them over and over again. So if a recipe makes it to this blog, that means it’s one we really love. So trust me, this is scrumptious! πŸ™‚
