1Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly coat the potatoes with olive oil and sprinkle with salt.
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 10 minutes. Turn up the oven to 425°F.
3Slice halfway through the potatoes lengthwise. Carefully scoop out as much of the potato flesh as you can, placing the filling into a large mixing bowl. Add the cream, green chiles, and cheese to the cooked potato in the mixing bowl and combine well.
4Spoon this filling into the potato shells and place on a baking tray. Bake until hot and lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Sprinkle with the diced bacon and serve.
