Thai Stuffed Sweet Potato Skins

Disclosure: Thank you Jojo’s Sriracha for helping me spice things up in the kitchen! It’s opportunities like these which allow me to continue to develop unique content. I am forever and always committed to sharing quality recipes and brands with you. All opinions expressed are entirely my own.

I’m all giddy today. The weekend is almost here. I’ve got an amazing recipe for Thai Stuffed Sweet Potato Skins. AND I’m going to tell you all about my new obsession: Jojo’s Sriracha.

Seriously. There is so much good stuff going on here that I can’t handle it. It should be illegal to jam this much awesomeness all into one place. Just slap the handcuffs on me and drag me away. But don’t really. Because that would be sad.

You know what else is jammed with awesomeness? These sweet potato skins. They have everything I love all wrapped into one delicious little package. Sweet potatoes, cilantro, peanut butter, chili sauce, the “bowls” are edible (I have a thing for that) and they’re a food that reminds me of an appetizer but that is totally legit to have for dinner (I also have a thing for that). These babies would make for perfect game day eats!

Let’s talk about chili sauce for a hot (get it?) second. Because today we’re using a chili sauce that has become near and dear to my heart: Jojo’s Sriracha. Don’t miss the Jojo’s Sriracha giveaway details below!

Jolene, aka the pepper whisperer, began making her own chili sauce as part of her journey to live a more healthy and authentic life. From this, Jojo’s Sriracha was born and to this day is still made in small batches (the jars even have the batch number stamped right on the label!) with all real ingredients. The original flavor uses just 5 ingredients and contains only 1% organic palm sugar.

But don’t be fooled. This stuff has got ALL the heat and the zip that you’d expect from a chili sauce, and with a much “cleaner” taste (no weird additives here!). And if you’re looking to take your chili sauce experience to the next level, Jojo’s Sriracha has partnered with Ravenswood Winery to create two wine-infused flavors: petite sirah and zinfandel. That’s a match made in heaven if you ask me!

Jojo’s Sriracha is generously giving away three jars (original flavor and the two wine-infused flavors) to one lucky Floating Kitchen reader!

Thai Stuffed Sweet Potato Skins

Yield: Makes 6 halves

Thai Stuffed Sweet Potato Skins


  • For the Sweet Potatoes
  • 3 medium sweet potatoes, scrubbed
  • 2 tablespoons Jojo’s Sriracha chili sauce
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 red pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 4 scallions, white and light green parts thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, roughly chopped

  • For the Peanut Sauce
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon Jojo’s Sriracha chili sauce
  • 1 tablespoon tamari (or soy sauce if you can tolerate gluten)
  • 1 tablespoon agave syrup
  • Juice from 1 lime

  • For the Garnish
  • Fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
  • Roasted peanuts


  1. Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees. Prick the sweet potatoes all over with a fork. Place on a rimmed baking sheet and roast in your pre-heated oven for 50-60 minutes, or until the sweet potatoes are soft. Remove and set aside to cool slightly. Leave your oven on.
  2. Once the sweet potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut them in half lengthwise. Using a spoon, scrape out the flesh and transfer it to a medium bowl, leaving a small amount attached to the sides and bottom of the potato skins (this will help the skins retain their shape). Place the sweet potato skins back on your baking sheet and set them aside.
  3. Add the Jojo’s Sriracha chili sauce and the salt to the scraped sweet potato flesh. Using a hand held mixer, blend everything together. Set aside.
  4. In a small fry pan over medium heat, warm the olive oil. Add the red pepper, ginger and garlic and sauté, stirring occasionally, for 2-3 minutes. Add the scallions and sauté for 1-2 minutes more. Remove from the heat. Fold the red pepper mixture into the blended sweet potatoes. Fold in the cilantro.
  5. Spoon the sweet potato filling back into the skins, distributing the filling evenly. Place the stuff sweet potatoes skins back in your pre-heated oven for 6-8 minutes to re-warm them.
  6. While the stuffed sweet potatoes skins are re-warming, make the peanut sauce. Combine all of the ingredients in a small bowl and blend until smooth. Add 1-2 tablespoons of water to thin the sauce to your desired consistency.
  7. Remove the stuffed sweet potatoes skins from the oven. Drizzle with the peanut sauce. Top with some fresh cilantro and peanuts. Serve immediately.
  8. Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container for 1-2 days.
