Turkey Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
When I was in Sprouts the other day, I came across purple sweet potatoes. Of course I had to buy a couple. They looked just too good. I have gotten addicted to purple cauliflower, so I figured this had to be good. I'm attempting to keep things healthy and am wanting to increase my fiber and protein in my diet. This was surprisingly tasty!
1 can (8 ounces) black beans, drained and rinsed
1 teaspoon chili powder (more if you like spice)
1 cup frozen yellow corn
1 yellow onion, diced
2 tablespoons taco seasoning
4 large purple sweet potatoes (or regular)
1/2 cup cheddar cheese
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
Poke the potatoes with a fork and cook through in the microwave. Cut long ways in half and scoop out the inside and discard. Brown the turkey in a medium sauté pan. Remove from heat and add to large bowl when done.
Meanwhile, heat the beans and three tablespoons of the minced onion, with the chili powder. Remove from heat and mash. Add and mix to the turkey. Add the corn, onion and taco season and mix well. Add the turkey mixture to the centers of the potatoes, top with the cheese and bake in a glass dish for about 15 minutes. Remove and add any additional toppings such as avocado, yogurt (or sour cream), and hot sauce.
