  4. Remove and place in a bowl with chopped cilantro and lime juice. Add salt and pepper to taste.

  7. Stuff your mixture back inside the sweet potato skins. Sprinkle cheese on top and bake for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.

  8. Next, whisk together all ingredients for chipotle sauce or combine in a blender and process until thoroughly mixed.
