Turkey Taco Stuffed Sweet Potatoes (Recipe)
- 2 large sweet potatoes
- 1 tsp of olive oil
- 1 package of ground turkey
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1/2 tsp dried oregano
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 2-3 small tomatoes, chopped
- 1/4 shredded cheese of your choice
- 2 tbsp of sprinkled parsley
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Poke holes all over the sweet potatoes and cook in the microwave for 5-6 minutes on high. Let them cool and place in a baking dish.
- Slice the potatoes in half longways and carefully scoop out the sweet potato. Place the sweet potato skins off to the side -- these are your taco bowls.
- Mash up the scooped potatoes, begin to add in your olive oil and add a pinch of salt and pepper. Evenly distribute the mashed sweet potatoes back into their skins.
- In a large skillet, over medium-high heat, cook ground turkey, breaking up into pieces, until cooked through. Add in garlic, chili powder, oregano and paprika, and top with a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Cook for 1 minute. Stir in the crushed tomatoes.
- Spoon turkey mix into the sweet potato skins. Top with cheese. Place in oven to warm and allow cheese to melt. Enjoy!
