It's time again for
Secret Recipe Club (Secret Recipe Club) reveal! This month I got to choose a recipe from Beth's blog It's Good To Be The Cook. Beth lives outside Philadelphia, loves her family, her wonderful (and cute) boyfriend Dave, and her dog Stella. Her posts are so much fun to read. They're not just about the food - though the food is definitely front and center with recipes and loads of mouth-watering pictures.
So I started looking at the recipes - Oh, Beth! So many great recipes. How am I supposed to choose? I love all the spicy stuff and that there's spinach in practically everything. OK, maybe not everything, but a lot. It looks like she's almost as obsessed with fresh spinach as I am. I love it in practically everything! Also, she has all her clipped and saved recipes organized in a binder - something I've thought about/wanted to do for ages, and never got around to it. Yep, I still have boxes of magazine and newspaper clippings, recipes I wanted to try but may never find again. I'm kinda jealous of her organizational skills.
Anyway, I started looking through the recipes, and I wanted to try the Buffalo Chicken Soup, the Black & White Bean Quesadillas w/ Avocado Ranch Dip, the Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Baked Potato, the Chicken and Bean Burritos, and several more, but I finally decided on these Tex-Mex Stuffed Sweet Potatoes. And it was a very good decision. These things are yummy!!!
I didn't actually pay attention to how long I sauteed the onions, garlic, peppers, etc. Just added the onion to the skillet, cooked it a bit, then started adding all the other ingredients. It's basically what looks good to you. It does look good, doesn't it? Oh, and I only used 1/2 of the jalapeno because I thought the whole thing would make it too spicy for my husband, but it didn't turn out spicy at all, so I'd suggest sticking with the whole thing. Or using the pickled ones like Beth did in hers.

So many yummy flavors. I am definitely making these again! And trying some of those other recipes from Beth's blog. Be sure to check it out for yourself.
