Sweet potatoe filled with peppers tuna and olives

Today I want to share with you a recipe that I use to do often because I really love it: SWEET POTATOE FILLED WITH PEPPERS, TUNA AND OLIVES.
Sweet potatoes are perfect for every kind of recipe, both sweet and savory recipes.
Sweet potatoes are rich of properties and benefits, lot of vitamins (A, B6, C) and mineral salts… Also they have a really low glycemic index compared to the common potatoes.
What can I say, friends?
