Need a quick and healthy dinner? Here it is! The Baked Sweet Potato with Beans recipe is something I quickly put together one night not knowing what in the world to make for dinner. This vegetarian dinner is sure to please your palette.
Plus, this recipe uses the Wild Alex Herb taco seasoning, Diego Rivera/Frida Kahlo, that you can get at the Wild Alex Herbs Etsy shop. It’s a wild blend of herbs and spices that includes herbs such as nettle and dandelion. So, be wild and give it a whirl.
