Tips for Beans, Bacon, and Pork

Instructions

  1. 1Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly coat the potatoes with olive oil and sprinkle with salt.
  2. 2Bake until soft. Test with a fork after 1 hour; bake an additional 15 minutes if needed. Remove sweet potatoes from the oven, slice in half lengthwise and let cool for about 15 minutes.
  3. 3Cut into each potato lengthwise. Mash up the interior a bit and add 1 tablespoon of butter to each. Distribute the black beans evenly among the potatoes, stuffing them in as best you can, then add a huge dollop of sour cream to the tops. Sprinkle with the bacon and serve.
