Tonight I tried a new recipe for Taco Stuffed Sweet Potatoes inspired by this one from PaleOmg. Of courseI was intrigued by the recipe because it involved sweet potato – my absolute fave food. I had to modify it quite a bit because I don’t have an Instant Pot. I know they are the rage of the moment, but I haven’t felt inspired to learn how to use one to be honest.

INGREDIENTS:
1 lb. ground turkey or beef
Half of a yellow onion, diced
Half of a sweet red pepper, diced
1/2 TBS olive oil
Homemade mexican seasoning (2 tsp chili powder, 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp oregano)
2-3 baked sweet potatoes

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Bake 2-3 sweet potatoes at 400 for 30-45 minutes (depending on size of potatoes) until softened. TIP: I place some aluminum foil underneath the oven rack where the potatoes are placed to avoid them dripping onto the bottom of the oven when they are near done.
  2. While the potatoes are baking sauté the onion and peppers in the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat until vegetables begin to soften.
  3. Add the ground meat and seasoning, mixing and breaking the meat apart as it cooks until no longer pink.
  4. When the potatoes are done split down the middle and top with the meat mixture.
