These Twice-Baked Sweet Potatoes Are Basically Burritos—But Way Healthier

You’ll never want to eat sweet potatoes any other way. When I’m at a loss for what to make for dinner, I often turn to Southwestern flavors and ingredients. I know that some combination of black or pinto beans, avocado, pepitas, and Monterey or Pepper jack cheese will always satisfy me, no matter how I combine them. Rolling them into a burrito is an obvious choice; however, I recently discovered a lighter, healthier method of preparation—and you only need five ingredients to make it.

Tea-time snack: How to make Masala Baby Potatoes

Potatoes have to be the most loved vegetable in Indian cuisine. No chaat (snack) party is complete without a lot of potato dishes.

Most kitchen hacks fall into the don’t knock it ’till you try it camp: You’re going to get eye rolls until people experience the genius for themselves. And to be honest, a big ol’ eye roll was exactly what we did when we first read that a box of instant mashed potatoes is the key to the fluffiest gnocchi ever. It seems insane — barbaric, even — that a shortcut could actually produce better-tasting pasta. But get this: The internet is flipping out about it … in a really good way.

Grilled Potatoes, Three Ways

We’re halfway through July. If you’re already sick of throwing corn or donuts (you bad!) on the grill, try potatoes. Surprised to hear that the starchy veg works well over a flame? We were, too, so we tried prepping them three different ways—one of which were the insanely amazing grilled garlic fries pictured above—to prove that potatoes aren’t just a delish baked addition to a Super Bowl spread.
