Taco Stuffed Sweet Potato

Hey everyone! If you like sweet potatoes then you have GOT to try this recipe. We absolutely loved it at our house and it will become one of my go-to super quick weeknight meals. I adapted it from the Biggest Loser website. Of course, you could do different variations like adding black beans instead of meat, add corn, etc. There are really so many options! Hope you enjoy!

Taco Stuffed Sweet Potato
  • 1 (8-ounce) sweet potato
  • 4 ounces extra-lean ground beef or turkey
  • 3/4 teaspoon all-natural salt-free fajita or Southwest seasoning (I used Mrs. Dash's seasoning)
  • Salsa (however much you like)
  • 2 tablespoons fat-free Greek yogurt
  • Using a fork, poke 5 holes on each side of your sweet potato. Wrap in a paper towel and microwave for 3 minutes. Carefully rotate the sweet potato in the microwave to the other side and microwave an additional 3-4 minutes or until the potato is tender.
  • While the potato is cooking in a skillet over med-high heat brown your meat with the fajita seasoning.
  • After potato is cooked cut an opening and put 1/2 of your salsa in first followed by meat then the rest of your salsa. Then, add your fat-free greek yogurt on top!
And there you have it! Super quick, super cheap and super healthy!
