    1 Prepare the ingredients & make the lime sour cream

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut the sweet potatoes into 1-inch-wide wedges. Halve the zucchini lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers. Quarter lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then thinly slice crosswise. Peel and thinly slice the shallot. Grate the cheddar on the large side of a box grater; place in a bowl. Add the monterey jack and toss to combine. Quarter the lime. In a bowl, combine the sour cream and the juice of 2 lime wedges; season with salt and pepper.
