Ingredients

  • 3 large sweet potatoes, baked or microwaved until tender
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • One 9-ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup corn kernels
  • 3/4 cup jarred salsa
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1/4 cup sour cream or plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 green onion, finely chopped
  • Chopped fresh cilantro, for garnish

Method

Step 1

Cut the baked sweet potatoes in half and fluff their centers with a fork to create slight reservoirs in each. Set aside.

Step 2

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ground turkey and cook, breaking it up with a spoon, until it's browned, about 8 minutes. Add the black beans, corn, salsa and taco seasoning and cook, stirring, until they are heated through, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat.

Step 3

Spoon the turkey taco mixture into the center of each sweet potato. Top each with avocado, a dollop of sour cream, some green onion and cilantro. Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator, covered, for up to 3 days.
