Prep: 10 mins - Cook: 40 mins - Total: 50 mins

 

Ingredients

4 medium-sized sweet potatoes
1.5 Tablespoons olive oil
12-16 oz. ground turkey
3 tablespoons taco seasoning
1 can black beans, rinsed
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup diced black olives
1 cup diced grape tomatoes
1/2 cup red onion, chopped
any other veggies you want
1/2 cup water or chicken broth
salt and pepper to taste

 

Instructions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Slice sweet potatoes 1/8" thick. Place in a bowl and toss with olive oil. Place on a baking pan, and roast for 10 minutes. Flip, and roast another 10 minutes. Broil on high for 2 minutes to get them crispy, slightly longer if needed. Depending on how many you have, you might have to do two shifts of roasting potatoes.

While roasting sweet potatoes, brown ground turkey in a skillet over medium heat. Once cooked through and crumbled, add 2 tablespoons taco seasoning and 1/2 cup water. Mix thoroughly and simmer until water is gone. Remove from heat and set aside.

Blend black beans with 1/2 cup of water or chicken broth. You may need to add a bit more to get them to blend well into a paste. Place in a saucepan to heat up, then stir in taco seasoning. Simmer on low for 2-3 minutes.

Once potatoes are done, place them all on a greased roasting pan. Layer with beans, taco meat, veggies and cheese.

Bake at 350 for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Serve!
