Ingredients

  • 2 large sweet potatoes one of mine was about 500 grams
  • 1 onion diced
  • 1 lb ground beef/chicken/turkey
  • 1 jalapeno diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • 1 roma tomato diced
  • 1 cup enchilada sauce
  • Avocado yogurt, cheese for topping, optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425.
  • Oil, salt and pepper your sweet potatoes, then bake for about 45 minutes, or until fork tender. My sweet potato was very big.
  • Meanwhile, for the filling, heat oil in a pan over medium heat.
  • Add the onion and fry about 5 minutes, until it has a bit of color and is softer.
  • Add the ground beef, and season with salt and pepper. Cook until browned.
  • Add the red bell pepper, jalapeno, garlic and diced tomato. Cook for a few minutes, until vegetables are a little softer and coked through.
  • Add enchilada sauce and simmer for about 10 minutes or so. Add water as needed for the consistency you prefer. I like mine a little saucy. Keep warm until potatoes are cooked.
  • When potatoes are done, cut them in half. I used a fork to fluff up a bit of the inside of the potato. Top with the enchilada topping, garnish as you like, and serve it up! I suggest diced avocado, shredded cheese, yogurt or sour cream and some cilantro.
