Chilli Stuffed Sweet Potato Skins - Pinch of Nom Slimming Recipes

For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card below. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb!

One of the best things about making a big batch of Chilli Con Carne is that it can be served up in so many different ways, keeping it interesting even if you have it a couple of times within the same week. 

These Chilli Stuffed Sweet Potato Skins are our new favourite way to serve up this much-loved midweek classic. A nice change from rice or a jacket spud, the chilli is baked into the sweet potato skins, with plenty of gooey, golden cheese on top. 

You can use up any leftover chilli, or make it from scratch especially for these potato skins – we’ve included the details for a tasty, slimming friendly chilli in the recipe below. 

This dish can even be made vegetarian if you’d rather use some Quorn mince to keep the recipe meat-free. Any kind of chilli goes, so if you’ve got a favourite recipe that you’d rather use, go for it! It will taste even better loaded with cheese and baked into these crispy potato skins. 

What diets are these Chilli Stuffed Sweet Potato Skins suitable for?

These Chilli Stuffed Sweet Potato Skins can be enjoyed on a gluten free diet, as long as you use Henderson’s Relish instead of Worcestershire Sauce. 

To make this recipe vegetarian you can use Quorn mince and Henderson’s Relish. 

If you’re cooking for people with allergies, be extra careful when checking ingredients and preparing food!
