Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place whole sweet potatoes on a sheet pan covered in foil or parchment, poke each a few times with a fork. Bake until fork tender, 40-45 minutes.  Allow to cool for 10 minutes. Switch oven from bake to broil.

Meanwhile in a small bowl combine black beans with taco seasoning. Cut sweet potatoes in half and carefully scoop out flesh with a metal spoon, leaving about ¼-inch of flesh intact

Place potatoes, skin side up back on the sheet pan, spray with olive oil, top with pinch salt and pepper, and broil for 2 to 3 minutes. Remove skins from oven, turn over and fill each with black beans, 1 tbsp salsa and 1 tbsp cheese then return to oven to broil 2 minutes more.
