* 1 cup plus 1/2 cup of Shredded Cheese (a mix of Monterey Jack and Cheddar) or any Cheese of your choice.
* 4 tablespoons of Brown Sugar ( 2 tablespoons to caramelize the Vegetables and 2 tablespoons to sprinkle on the Potato before putting the Shredded Cheese and Vegetables on top of the Potato.)

METHOD/INSTRUCTIONS:
Bake the yams/sweet potatoes. Put all the diced ingredients (bell pepper, onions, mushrooms and/or cooked chicken) into a skillet and sauté to your liking. Split the yam/potato in half, make a “well” to put in the fillings. Put the brown sugar in the yam/potato, then put in the veg/chicken mixture inside the yam/potato and then top with cheese. Then put the loaded yam/potato back in microwave or under broiler briefly until cheese melts.
