SERVES 4 | PREP 5 MIN | COOK 50 MIN

Ingredients

4 medium sweet potatoes 
1 pound of ground beef
1 teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
½ teaspoon garlic powder 
1 teaspoon dried onion powder 
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon ground cumin
½ teaspoon dried red pepper flakes

Garnishes:

Directions

PREHEAT oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

RINSE sweet potatoes and pat dry. Wrap in aluminum foil and place on a baking sheet in the oven until very soft, about 40 minutes.

HEAT a skillet to medium-low heat. Add the ground beef and mince with a wooden spoon.

ADD all of the spices and continue cooking with the beef until it is completely cooked through, about 12-15 minutes.

TURN the heat off and carefully drain the excess grease.

When the sweet potatoes are done baking, REMOVE from the oven and carefully unwrap.

MAKE a slit in the middle of each sweet potato and fill it with the spiced ground beef mixture, storing any extra ground beef in the fridge for up to 3 days.

GARNISH with cherry tomatoes, avocado, fresh cilantro and minced scallion.
