How I actually made them:
pulled pork taters my wayIngredients:
2 sweet potatoes (baked until done in 350° oven)
1 pkg. Jim Beam brand BBQ Pulled Chicken
Butter
No-fat sour cream
Thinly sliced green onions

We cut the baked sweet potatoes in half, mushed them up with some butter, heaped on the pulled chicken, and topped with sour cream and onions. It was pretty darn tasty on a chilly autumn evening–which is why I used the oven. We haven’t turned on the heater yet. Lawyer Guy has said we can keep this on in the recipe box. 😉

  1. Sounds good. Might do it with regular taters, though. I’m not a huge fan of the sweet ones.

    And now I’m hungry. =op

    I’m adding this to my recipe box…you know without the sour cream. I love sweet potatoes and have never thought about putting pulled pork/chicken on them.
