Friends with Recipes: Chili Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

My favourite instagram accounts are ones that leave me happy or hungry. Lila’s beautiful account leaves me feeling both! Lila (@iamalila) is a lifestyle photographer and mother of twins, though her account seems to focus on her love of food and eating. From smoothie bowls, to tacos, to homemade soups, her account is full of beautiful inspiration! I knew she would come up with something yummy for my Friends with Recipes series, and I was right!  This super simple recipe looks too yummy not to try.

    This might be a silly question, but what are harissa beans? I haven’t come across them before. Are they just beans seasoned with harissa? What type of beans? …and any idea where to buy them?
    I’d love to try this recipe!
