Game day food! Sweet potatoes are taken to another level in these Twice Baked Buffalo Chicken Sweet Potatoes – sweet potatoes filled with buffalo sauce, blue cheese and the works!


Twice Baked Buffalo Chicken Sweet Potatoes | Taste and Tell

Well, it looks like I’m in the mood to stuff things. Last week, it was the Double-Stuffed Butternut Squash, and this week, I’m stuffing potatoes.

But these aren’t just any twice baked potatoes.

They are sweet potatoes meets buffalo chicken. Aka – the perfect game day food.

We all know that I’m not one to sit down and watch an entire football game, cheering on my team. (Yeah – I don’t have a team. :) ) But you will find me either in the kitchen, obsessing over making game day food or by the food table, eating the game day food.

That’s the exciting part for me. :)

I love buffalo chicken anything. Maybe not as much as Karly does, but pretty close. I actually had the idea for these potatoes pop into my head months and months ago. Since I love buffalo chicken, and I am obsessed with sweet potatoes, it only seemed natural for me to want to combine them. And I’m pretty much kicking myself for not making these back when I first imagined them. Because they are good. Really good. So good that I might have to use football as an excuse to make them once a week from here until February.

The most difficult part of this recipe is finding sweet potatoes that aren’t ginormous. (Is it just my grocery store that sells mammoth sized sweet potatoes?) But after digging around, I was able to find sweet potatoes that were about 9-10 oz each. But besides that, these are a cinch to make. Especially if you have some shredded chicken on hand already.

I’m pretty sure this is my idea of buffalo chicken heaven!

Twice Baked Buffalo Chicken Sweet Potatoes

Game day food! Sweet potatoes are taken to another level in these Twice Baked Buffalo Chicken Sweet Potatoes – sweet potatoes filled with buffalo sauce, blue cheese and the works!

Ingredients

  • 4 sweet potatoes (9-10 oz each)
  • 1 1/4 cups Monterey Jack cheese, divided
  • 1/2 cup ranch dressing
  • 4 oz blue cheese, divided
  • 1/4 cup Franks Red Hot
  • 2 oz cream cheese, cut into pieces
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 2 cups cooked, shredded chicken
  • Sliced green onions

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Clean and pierce the potatoes with a fork several times. Bake until soft, about 45 minutes. Let stand until cool enough to handle.
  2. Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise and remove the flesh to a bowl, leaving a thin layer around the outside of the potato to keep the shape. Mash the sweet potato flesh. Add in 1/2 cup of the Monterey Jack cheese, the ranch dressing, 2 oz of the blue cheese, the Frank’s red hot, cream cheese and butter. Mix to combine. Stir in the shredded chicken.
  3. Add the filling back into the potato skins. Top with the remaining Monterey Jack and blue cheese. Return to the oven until heated through and the cheese is melted, 10-15 minutes. Serve topped with sliced green onions.

    My grocery store has the most odd shaped sweet potatoes and they are huge! Kind of a pain in the but, but I guess they are all still good! I am a buffalo chicken addict and so is my family! I have actually done a version of these just because I had the ingredients one night, but they were not totally loaded like these. These look awesome!

  2. My husband is going to go nuts for these! Pinned.

  5. Oh gosh, these look amazing. We are having stuffed “taco” sweet potatoes tonight for dinner. But now I may want to change up the recipe plan for these instead. Can’t go wrong with buffalo chicken flavor! :)

  6. Um, this wins! Totally pinning this to my tailgating board!

    Ugh, my grocery store is the same way – all of the sweet potatoes are HUGE! I need to find some small ones through because this recipe is awesome. Way better than traditional twice baked potatoes!

  17. Angela says:

    These were delicious! And I don’t even like sweet potatoes — avoid them whenever I can, actually. But got some in a produce co-op basket so had to try something…and these were awesome! The whole family liked them. I didn’t have blue cheese, so used half ranch, half chunky blue cheese dressing. Turned out fantastic. Thanks for the recipe! We’ll be doing these again!
