- 10 Sweet potatoes (about 3 lb.), washed, dried, pierced with a fork, rubbed with olive oil, and seasoned with salt and black pepper
- 4 tbsp Olive oil, divided
- 1 lb Soy chorizo, casing removed
- ¼ cup Minced scallion whites and light greens
- 1 tsp Minced chipotle in adobo sauce
- 1 tsp Adobo sauce
- 1 tsp Minced fresh garlic

- Sliced scallions, chopped fresh cilantro, and sour cream or plain Greek yogurt
- Preheat oven to 400°.
- Bake sweet potatoes on a foil-lined baking sheet until fork-tender, 30–45 minutes; let cool completely. (Sweet potatoes can be baked, cooled, and refrigerated overnight.)
- Halve sweet potatoes lengthwise, and scoop out flesh, leaving ¼-inch flesh inside skin. (Save scooped out flesh for another use.)
- Arrange skins on a rack set in a baking sheet, skin sides up; brush with 1 Tbsp. oil.
- Bake skins until slightly browned and crisp, 25–30 minutes. Flip skins when cool enough to handle.
- Meanwhile, cook chorizo in a saucepan in 1 Tbsp. oil over medium heat, breaking up chunks with a potato masher, until cooked through, about 10 minutes; transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate.
- Sauté ¼ cup scallions, chipotle, adobo sauce, garlic, cumin, and chile powder in remaining 2 Tbsp. oil in same saucepan over medium-high heat until scallions soften, 3–5 minutes.
- Add beans and liquid; simmer until mixture thickens, about 10 minutes. Stir in lime juice; season beans with salt and pepper.
- Fill skins with chorizo and beans; sprinkle with cheese. Bake skins until cheese melts, 3–5 minutes. Top skins with scallions, cilantro, and sour cream.
