It’s a baked sweet potato that tastes like the inside of a beef burrito!
This is definitely one of my new favorite dinners; stuffing anything into a sweet potato. We first did this in January when Jay was doing Whole30, and it somehow feels fun to stuff a meal into a potato and call it a health food. Sweet potatoes are one of the Whole30 go-tos for filling but compliant meals, and we happen to love them. Specifically, I love the sweet+spicy combo of topping these with jalapenos, and the filling is super simple with ground beef and fajita veggies.
You can swap out the meat for ground chicken or turkey, or make these all vegetarian with extra veggies. DEFINITELY add cheese and/or sour cream if you aren’t avoiding dairy; I love topping these with all sorts of things just like a burrito or taco.
These do take a bit of time because the potatoes themselves take some time to bake, but you get the rest of the meal done while the potatoes work and the whole thing is ready in about an hour. You can also roast a bunch of sweet potatoes on the weekend for extra prep help, then just warm them back up when you are making the filling for your potato.
