Hearty and guilt-free, these southwestern style potatoes add excitement to any meal.

Baked potatoes taste great, but traditional recipes often include less-than-desirable ingredients like butter, sour cream, and marshmallows. These indulgent additives turn an ordinary vegetable into a caloric nightmare! Luckily, this Southwestern Stuffed Potatoes recipe goes above and beyond, delivering everything you love about baked potatoes (and more!) without sabotaging a healthy diet!

Russet potatoes are baked and stuffed to the brim with a mixture of fire roasted tomatoes, black beans, and savory spices. This beautiful blend of south-of-the-border flavors puts a unique twist on ordinary baked potatoes. These wholesome ingredients also boost the meal’s protein and fiber content, helping you feel full for hours. Sprinkle some cheese over the stuffed potatoes and pop them in the oven for an additional 10 minutes for an irresistibly cheesy finish.

Hearty and guilt-free, these southwestern style potatoes add excitement to any meal.
