Mexican Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

MEX

Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground beef;
  • 4 sweet or russet potatoes;
  • 1/2 onion, diced;
  • 1 bell pepper diced;
  • ½ cup chopped green onions;
  • Fresh salsa;

Ingredients for the taco seasoning

  • 1 tbsp. chili powder;

  • ½ tsp. dried oregano;
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder;
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper;

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 F.

  3. In a bowl, combine all the ingredients for the taco seasoning.
  4. Add the ground beef and onions to the skillet and cook until browned.
  5. Sprinkle the taco seasoning onto the beef, and stir to combine. You may want to add 1 or 2 tbsp. of water if the meat is too dry.
  6. Cook the ground beef another minute or two and set aside.
  7. Slice each potato in half, press the insides down or scoop some out.
  8. Fill the potatoes with the ground beef and top with all the remaining vegetables.
  9. Serve with fresh homemade salsa and guacomole.
