This recipe is my wholesome, delicious, but a little twisted paleo version of Taco Tuesday…
I threw this together on the fly recently when I was was craving a super-quick but hearty paleo meal that had lots of flavor.
It’s just a baked sweet potato with a bit of the flesh hollowed out, and it’s filled with a skillet-cooked ground meat taco mix. Nothing fancy, but so darn good!
I love the spiciness of the taco seasoning with the slight sweetness of the potato. Once I added the traditional toppings I wondered why I hadn’t tried this ridiculously simple combo way before now.
I had to bake my sweet potatoes just for this recipe…but I know a number of you like to plan ahead and usually have a handful of sweet potatoes that are already baked and ready to go. If that’s you, this fun little meal can come together in just 15 minutes or so!
This one really is the perfect meal prep idea for those weeknights when you just don’t have time to put together a meal from scratch. You could even make this taco filling ahead of time too and freeze it for a quick heat and eat meal.
I used my own homemade taco seasoning mix for this one…and in fact it pops up in a number of recipes here on Paleo Newbie. But feel free to use use your own pre-packaged favorite to save time if you like.
Easy-peasy, #whole30 and delicious.
