What better way to use up any leftover pulled pork (if there is any!) than to stuff a potato for a quick and delicious meal. These Pulled Pork Stuffed Sweet Potatoes go the Southern route with juicy pulled pork slathered with BBQ sauce, black beans, sour cream and avocados!

Pulled Pork Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

White potatoes are not the only potato to stuff. Sweet potatoes are another alternative that are just as fluffy and delicious. While I love my Slow Cooker BBQ Beef Stuffed Potatoes, these stuffed sweet potatoes are piled high with leftover Pulled Pork from the other day when I smoked a pork shoulder.

What’s the difference between a sweet potato and a yam?

Think of the sweet potato as the long, red-skinned ones and yams are the paler version, with a light flesh and has a rough, scaly skin. Both are starchy root vegetables and were first imported to the United States from the Caribbean. The red fleshed sweet potato is sweeter and I prefer it myself.

What’s in a stuffed sweet potato?

These sweet potatoes use leftover pulled pork slathered with BBQ sauce, sour cream (or plain Greek yogurt), black beans and avocado. I also add corn sometimes. Feel free to get creative!

These are savory and sweet at the same time and I love how versatile they are to fill. Guacamole works wonderfully in these too. Enjoy!

  1. Wow, this looks so amazing! I’m happy I landed here because we are all big fans of pulled pork in my house. Beautiful!

  2. 5 stars
    I just bought two pork shoulder roasts yesterday to make pulled pork! Now I know exactly what to do with the leftovers. These look amazing!

  3. Hey Kevin! What a perfect combination! I always make sweet potatoes which I do barbecued ribs, they just go together (as well as mac n cheese). I have just about the right amount of pork left to make these. Can’t wait to dig in!

    1. Excellent Dorothy! It’s hard having any leftover pulled pork, so I try to make extra for meals like this. 🙂

  4. 5 stars
    Talk about hearty and talk about delicious! Pumpkin seeds on there for a little crunch is definitely not optional in my opinion 😉

    1. These work and offer up a new way to use any leftover BBQ pulled pork…. if there is any. I make so much it’s nice to lightened it up every now and then. Thanks Dawn!
