Fully loaded baked potatoes are a perennial crowd pleaser, but tonight we’re giving this classic a colourful, fiesta-worthy upgrade. Drawing on the colours and flavours of Mexican cuisine, this plant-based dish will have you topping baked sweet potatoes with a zesty mixture of black beans and blistered cherry tomatoes, tossed with a Tijuana-worthy seasoning and plenty of scallions. You’ll be dressing it all with a zingy crema, creamy avocado purée and a bright cabbage slaw with toasted pepitas for the crunch factor. This one’s almost as pretty as it is delicious.

Roast the sweet potatoes
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Halve the sweet potatoes lengthwise; drizzle with oil and season with ⅓ of the spice blend and S&P. Place the seasoned sweet potatoes on a lined sheet pan, cut-sides down, and roast in the oven without turning, 30 to 35 minutes, until softened.

Mise en place
While the sweet potatoes roast, drain and rinse the black beans. Zest and juice the lime. Quarter the cherry tomatoes. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice, separating the white bottoms and green tops.

Make the salsa
In a large bowl, combine the black beans, cherry tomatoes, up to ½ the white bottoms of the scallions, up to ⅔ of the lime juice, up to ½ the lime zest (scallions, lime juice and zest to taste) and 2 tbsp oil (double for 4 portions). Season with ½ the remaining spice blend and S&P to taste.

Make the zesty crema & salad
In a medium bowl, combine the crema and as much of the remaining lime juice and zest as you’d like; season with the remaining spice blend and S&P to taste. In a large bowl, combine the cabbage, ½ the zesty crema, ½ the pepitas and as many of the remaining white bottoms of the scallions as you’d like; season with S&P and toss well.

Plate your dish
Divide the avocado purée between your plates and spread out in a circular motion. Top with the roasted sweet potatoes. Top the sweet potatoes with a spoonful each of the salsa, slaw and remaining pepitas. Drizzle with the remaining zesty crema (if the crema seems too thick, stir in 1 tsp water at a time until you’ve reached your desired consistency). Garnish with as many of the green tops of the scallions as you’d like. Serve any remaining salsa and slaw on the side. Bon appétit!
