Taco Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Okay okay okay… I know… I am sweet potato obsessed. There are worse obsessions… right? Haha meet me newest favorite use of sweet potatoes (be warned, it changes every day haha): Taco Stuffed Sweet Potatoes.

These are sooo dang tasty and so easy to make! You may think I’m crazy for another sweet potato recipe but trust me, you’ll love this one 😉

I’ve been trying to add more red meat into my diet for health reasons (been on and off anemic for the past year). I am not naturally a red meat fan so finding recipes that I actually enjoy with red meat is a struggle for me. Luckily everything that involves avocado and sweet potato is a win in my book (obviously based on my previous posts haha).

If you checked out my other fajita recipe: Chicken Fajita Stuffed Spaghetti Squash ,it’s pretty similar! Sub out grass fed beef and sweet potato and it’s just a different variation.

When adding in more meat to my diet, I always try to make sure that it’s high quality meat. I look for grass fed, organic beef. You can find it relatively cheap at Aldi ($5.50 for 4 servings). Even Walmart carries it now! Especially if you’re trying to balance hormones, it’s important to check to see if the meat has added hormones.

The key to me when trying to eat food I don’t necessarily *love* is seasoning seasoning seasoning. When in doubt, add more spices haha. I am lazy when it comes to fajita seasoning, I always use a pre-made package. It’s much easier and it really isn’t much more expensive than if you went out and bought all the spices individually.

I try to use organic packets so I use Primal Palate Taco Seasoning. but most health food stores will have some great options! Or you can google a homemade fajita combo as well!

I prepped a bunch of baked sweet potatoes (used some in this recipe yesterday) and reheated some to use with this recipe today. All I did today was sauté the veggies and the ground beef, mash some avocado, and top it with red pepper flakes! Ready in 10 minutes versus 50 minutes if I had to make the sweet potatoes day of.

Pretty easy and pretty dang tasty!

Happy Monday Friends and enjoy these Taco Stuffed Sweet Potatoes!
