Back to recipe


  • 4 sweet potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 jalapeno, diced
  • 1 pound grass-fed beef or ground turkey
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 tablespoon hot sauce
  • 2 tablespoon lime juice
  • Cilantro, for garnish


  1. For the Oven Roasted Sweet Potatoes: Prick your sweet potatoes each 2-3 times with a fork, then place them directly on the oven rack in the middle of the oven. Turn the oven on to 425°F. Bake for 45 minutes or until soft. Let the sweet potatoes sit in the oven for at least 30 minutes, but up to an hour.

  2. For the Taco Meat: Add olive oil to a 12″ Gourmet Fry Pan and sauté bell peppers and onions over medium heat for about 5 minutes. Add garlic, jalapeno and ground meat and break into smaller pieces. After meat has browned, add spices, hot sauce and lime juice. Mix to combine completely.

  3. Remove potatoes from oven, cut each in the middle, and pour taco meat inside. Garnish with cilantro.
