Happy Wednesday! I have a super yummy recipe for ya’ll today! We gave it a test last night, and the recipe passed with flying colors.
Mexican food is one I just don’t get sick of. I can have it for dinner one night, and then turn around and have it again for lunch the next day – rinse & repeat. I love the flavor combinations and how you can make so many different things with virtually the same ingredients. Here’s a yummy combo for your next taco night turned scramble night!
2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
1.25 lbs ground turkey meat
1/2 large sweet onion, diced
1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed
1 packet of taco seasoning
1 cup of Greek yogurt
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1/4 cup green onions
1 jar of salsa
Saute sweet potatoes over medium heat until tender. Add onions and cook until translucent. Add ground turkey and cook thoroughly. (If you have a higher fat meat, cook separately and then add to the skillet.) Once the turkey is about half way cooked, add the taco seasoning. Turn heat down to medium low, and then add the black beans. Cook for about 10 more minutes. Stir frequently so the spices spread throughout the dish.
To serve, add your favorite toppings. We added Greek yogurt (instead of sour cream), salsa, cilantro, green onions, and fresh avocado.
This is an easy recipe to substitute any type of meat you like or add other toppings. If I had peppers on hand, I would have added those as well. I just didn’t feel like another trip to the grocery store was necessary. The possibilities really are endless!
I hope you like it!
