Taco stuffed sweet potatoes


  • 2 sweet potatoes, about 1 pound each

  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil

  • 1 pound lean ground beef

  • 1 tablespoon chili powder

  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin

  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder

  • ½ teaspoon onion powder

  • ¼ teaspoon ground chipotle

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ cup water

  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste

  • 1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend, divided

  • 1 cup shredded romaine lettuce

  • 4 tablespoons pico de gallo


Step 1: Prepare sweet potatoes.

Prick sweet potatoes all over with a fork. Microwave on High until soft, 10 to 12 minutes.

Step 2: Cook beef and add ingredients.

Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add beef, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, chipotle and salt; cook, breaking the beef up into small pieces with a wooden spoon, until browned and no longer pink, 4 to 6 minutes. Whisk water and tomato paste in a measuring cup; add to the pan and stir to coat the mixture. Stir in 1/2 cup cheese.

Step 3: Add final ingredients and serve.

Halve the sweet potatoes and mash the flesh a bit with a fork. Top each half with 1/2 cup of the beef mixture, 2 tablespoons cheese, 1/4 cup lettuce and 1 tablespoon pico de gallo.
