Sweet potatoes


“Turkey Taco Bowl”


  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/4 + 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 + 1/8 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 3/4 pound lean (93%) ground turkey
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 can of  crushed or diced tomatoes
  • 2 slices of Pepper Jack cheese


1. Pierce the sweet potatoes all over with a fork. Cook in the microwave on HIGH until tender when pierced with a fork, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Let the potatoes rest until cool enough to handle.

2. Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise. Carefully scoop the flesh out of the potatoes and place in a medium-sized bowl. Reserve the skins. With the back of a fork, mash the potato flesh until most lumps are gone. Divide the mashed sweet potato evenly between the potato skins. Place on a baking sheet.

3. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Lightly coat with the olive oil. Add the ground turkey and cook, breaking up with a wooden spoon, until cooked through. Stir in the garlic, chili powder, cumin, oregano, paprika, and salt and pepper. Cook for 1 minute. Stir in the crushed/diced tomatoes.

3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spoon the turkey mixture into each sweet potato skin. Top each with a half slice of pepper jack cheese. Heat in the oven until cheese is melted, about 4 minutes. Enjoy!
