Cooking Time1 hr 5 min


  • 6 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup crumbled goat cheese
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 tablespoon juice
  • 1 teaspoon grated peel from small orange
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground chipotle powder, optional
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • 3 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled


  1. Scrub and pierce sweet potatoes. Bake at 400 degrees F for about 45 minutes or until tender. When potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut in half lengthwise; scoop out pulp, leaving a thin shell. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F.
  2. Place the pulp in a food processor. Add the goat cheese, buttermilk and butter; cover and process until smooth. Add the orange juice, orange peel and chipotle powder if desired; cover and process until combined.
  3. Place potato shells on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper; spoon potato mixture into shells. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until heated through. Sprinkle with bacon.
