Sweet Potatoes Stuffed with Chipotle Black Bean & Corn Salad

Last month my Sister In Law came to visit us.  She's a vegetarian, so I wanted to plan a meal that we could all eat (and enjoy).  I remembered pinning this recipe a while back and decided to give it a go when she was here.  I love sweet potatoes and can eat corn salsa every night.  Aside from baking the potatoes, this recipe was an easy fix.  There was even some left over corn and bean mix, which we enjoyed with guacamole and tortilla chips.  

Results: The husband wasn't a fan of this dinner at all.  He ate a few bites making ridiculous faces with each bite.  When I finally told him he didn't have to eat it, he exhaled and pushed his plate over. Dramatic much?  But the SIL and I really enjoyed it.  I loved the freshness that the cilantro added to it and how filling it was. I'll definitely make it again, probably for lunch since hubs won't eat it.  Enjoy!
