I love recipes where you get to “stuff” some thing. Mushrooms, bell peppers, pasta, and specially candy potatoes, simply make such delicious vessels for all forms of scrumptious offerings.

And making just about whatever into a taco, my preferred meals, is a serious passion of mine. If you’re a taco lover too, then you are going to love this recipe!

Taco Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Taco Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Ingredients

  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 medium onionchopped
  • 2 cloves garlicminced
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 1 cup chunky salsa
  • 1/4-1/2 cup water
  • 4 medium sweet potatoesabout 12-14 ounces each

Toppings (optional):

  • shredded Mexican blend cheese
  • diced tomato
  • diced avocado or guacamole
  • sour cream

Instructions

  • Brown ground beef, chopped onion, and garlic in a large skillet over medium high heat. Drain grease and add the taco seasoning and salsa.
  • Reduce heat to medium low and cook for about 5 more minutes until mixture has thickened and is heated through. Add up to 1/2 cup of water to achieve desired consistency.
  • While the meat is cooking, poke holes all over the sweet potatoes and cook in the microwave for 8-10 minutes on high, turning sweet potatoes over once halfway through. If potatoes aren’t soft enough, continue cooking 1-3 minutes more. I usually cook two potatoes at one time, but if your microwave allows, you could cook all four at once. Allow sweet potatoes to cool slightly, then slice them lengthwise and fluff the insides with a fork.
  • Spoon the cooked taco meat over the sweet potatoes and add desired toppings such as shredded cheese, diced tomato, avocado, guacamole, or sour cream. Enjoy!
