Taco Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
Taco anything is my favorite. I mean really, search taco on my site and you will find more recipes then anything else! I love the bold flavors that are used and top just about all of it with sour cream. These Taco Stuffed Sweet Potatoes are no different! Plus when you add anything to a potato you know it’s going to be good!
I started by cooking the potatoes in the microwave. You could always pop them in the oven but they get done much faster in the microwave. Once they are cool you can cut them in half and scoop out all the insides. Set the peel aside for stuffing later. Next you want to cook your ground turkey and season it. Once you drain the fat return the turkey to the skillet. I added my potatoes right to the skillet along with tomatoes and mixed it all together then stuffed it! Last I topped with cheese and broiled it in the oven.
