If you are looking for a different way to serve pulled pork, you are in the right place. Fill baked sweet potatoes with pork, cheese, jalapenos, and sour cream for the perfect meal.

When serving a crowd, we often turn to pulled pork to get the job done. It is one of those entrees that lends itself to big quantities.

Stuffed sweet potato ingredients including sweet potatoes, cheese, salt, pepper, pulled pork, bbq sauce, sour cream, chives, butter, and jalapenos.

But when the event is done, we often find ourselves with plenty of leftovers. Luckily, we love leftovers, and I love to turn them into something new.

Because you can only have so many pulled pork sandwiches before you need something new. So we usually freeze some to turn into recipes using pulled pork later.

Loading baked potatoes with some pork is a great way to change it up. It doesn’t take a lot of time either.

We prefer the flavor of baked sweet potatoes that were cooked in the oven, but you can toss them in the microwave in a pinch. They are tasty either way.
