    Prepare the ingredients & bake the trays
    1 Prepare the ingredients & bake the trays

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Drain and rinse the beans. Lightly coat each tray with a drizzle of olive oil. Between the two prepared trays, evenly divide the drained beans, tomatoes, spice blend, pepper sofrito, and guajillo sauce. Add 2 tablespoons of water to each tray. Season with salt and pepper; stir to thoroughly combine. Add the chorizo in an even layer (tearing into bite-sized pieces before adding). Tightly cover the trays with foil and bake 14 to 16 minutes, or until slightly thickened and the chorizo is cooked through. Remove from the oven; carefully remove the foil. Using the back of a spoon, carefully press down on the tomatoes to burst. Add the cheddar and monterey jack; stir to combine.

    Meanwhile, using a fork, prick a few holes in each sweet potato. Wrap each sweet potato in a damp paper towel. Microwave on high 9 to 12 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Carefully halve the cooked sweet potatoes lengthwise; season with salt and pepper. Using a fork, lightly mash the flesh. Serve the mashed sweet potatoes topped with the cheesy bean mixture, sour cream, cilantro sauce, and as much of the peppers as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be. Enjoy!
