Try This Recipe: Taco Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

If you could only have one food on a deserted island for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Mine would be Tacos! 🌮

I've started to dial in my nutrition more as I'm gearing up for that "beach bod", so instead of a total indulgence, I decided to prep Taco Stuff Sweet Potatoes this week.

Now, to be honest, there is probably nothing different from this recipe than making regular, corn/tortilla shell tacos - you are just using a big ol' delicious sweet potato.

But, sometimes it's just small substitutions that let you stay on your diet track.

So, here's to Tacos 🌮 and sticking to a diet plan! Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 # ground beef
  • 4 sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 white onion, diced
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper diced
  • 1 cup fresh iceberg lettuce, shredded
  • ½ cup chopped green onions
  • Fresh salsa

    Taco Seasoning
  • 1 tbsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • ½ tsp. paprika
  • ½ tsp. dried oregano
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
DIRECTIONS 
  1. Preheat oven to 375 F.
  2. Pierce potatoes all over with a fork and bake in the oven, directly on rack, until soft (about 40 to 45 min. depending on the size of your potatoes).
  3. In a bowl, combine all the ingredients for the taco seasoning.
  4. Melt some cooking fat in a skillet over medium-high heat.
  5. Add the onions and cook until soft and fragrant, about 3 to 4 minutes.
  6. Add the ground beef to the skillet and cook until browned.
  7. Sprinkle the taco seasoning onto the beef, and stir to combine. (Add water if the seasoning is clumpy or mixture too dry)
  8. Cook the ground beef another minute or two and set aside.
  9. Using a sharp knife, make a lengthwise slit in each potato and push ends of each potato toward each other to open.
  10. Fill the potatoes with the ground beef and top with all the remaining vegetables.
  11. Serve with SALSA!
