Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes with Ham Recipe

  • 2 large sweet potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 3 tablespoons diced onion
  • 3 tablespoons diced red bell pepper
  • 1 cup diced smoked ham
  • 2/3 cup crushed pineapple, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon chipotle chile powder, or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Bake sweet potatoes in the preheated oven until softened, about 1 hour.
  3. Heat canola oil in a skillet over medium heat; saute onion and red bell pepper until just softened, about 5 minutes. Add ham, 1/2 the pineapple, and chipotle powder; saute over low heat until heated through, about 5 more minutes.
  4. Cut sweet potatoes in half lengthwise and scoop out the insides, leaving a thin shell. Blend sweet potatoes in a blender or mash in a bowl with a potato masher. Stir the remaining pineapple, nutmeg, and cinnamon into mashed sweet potatoes.
  5. Return mashed sweet potato mixture to the shells and top each with ham mixture.
