Taco night just got an upgrade with all the things you love about tacos inside the deliciousness of a freshly baked sweet potato.
Cuisine: American, Mexican
Keyword: taco night, taco stuffed sweet potatoes
6large sweet potatoes
1pound ground beef
1large sweet onion, diced
1canblack beans, drained
2Tablespoonstaco seasoning* (1 package or make your own)
Your favorite toppings:
1cupguacamole or mashed avocado
Immediately start by pre-heating oven to 425˚ F. Pierce sweet potatoes several times with a fork or knife and place in pre-heated oven for 40-50 minutes depending on the size of your sweet potatoes. You'll know they're ready if they can easily be pierced through with a knife.
In a large non-stick skillet on medium-high heat with olive oil, cook onions until slightly tender. Add your ground beef and stir until meat is cooked through. Add black beans and taco seasoning. Stir until mixture is warm, about 1 minute.
When sweet potatoes are done, remove from oven and cut them open lengthwise. Fluff the inside of the sweet potato with a fork and make a little well for the taco mixture. Spoon taco mixture inside. Top with favorite ingredients like cheese, tomatoes, salsa, guacamole, mashed avocado, or sour cream.
*I always make my own taco seasoning unless I am out of particular spices. See this post for how easy this actually is!
