Prep time:5 minutes
Cook time:10 minutes
Total time:15 minutes
Equipment:

Cutting board, microwave-safe dish large enough to hold sweet potatoes, frying pan, spatula or mixing spoon, measuring cups and spoons

Utensils:

Knife, fork

Ingredients

4 small sweet potatoes

1/2 pound 85% lean ground beef or turkey

2 carrots, peeled and chopped

1 medium onion, chopped

1 cup frozen corn

1/2 packet taco seasoning OR CYP Taco Seasoning blend

1/4 cup cilantro, chopped (optional)

Instructions

1. Before you begin, wash your hands, surfaces, vegetables, tops of cans (if using), and utensils.

2. Poke each sweet potato several times with a fork, place in a microwave safe dish, and microwave on high for 10 minutes. Turn sweet potatoes over halfway through the baking time.

3. While potatoes are cooking, cook ground beef or turkey, carrots, and onion in a frying pan over medium heat until no pink remains in the ground beef or turkey, about 6 minutes. Drain fat into a paper towel lined bowl and throw away.

4. Add frozen corn and taco seasoning and cook for an additional two minutes.

5. Cut the sweet potatoes in half long-ways, fluff the potato with a fork, and top with the beef mixture. Top with cilantro, if using.

Tips

  • Sweet potatoes can also be cooked in the oven for 45 minutes at 400 degrees.
  • You can substitute 1 can of beans for the ½ pound of ground beef or turkey.
