Looking for a quick, nutritious lunch or snack? Try these tuna stuffed sweet potatoes.

Autumn is here and it’s time for soups, comfort dishes, pumpkins and sweet potatoes! Speaking of sweet potatoes, did I mention I love them? That’s why I’m always looking for new ways to serve them to my familia.

This is part of a sponsored collaboration with StarKist® and DiMe Media. However, my opinions, comments, and love for tuna fish and sweet potatoes are my own.

You’ll be surprised at how fast and easy this is to prepare. You know how much I like preparing things quickly without sacrificing flavor, which is why I’m so happy to have found an ally in the new Starkist® Tuna Creations® Tear. Eat. Go pouches. They come in different flavors and are so well seasoned that you don’t need to add a lot of ingredients to them. They’re so good, in fact, I keep trying the different flavors on crackers straight from the bag.

For this recipe, I went for the Tuna Creations® Bold Jalapeño flavor (of course!). The spicy jalapeño and sweet potato balance each other in a recipe that’s both refreshing and comforting at the same time. That is a trick!

I just topped them off with green onions and cilantro and added a crunchy surprise. Try these out.
