Sweet Potato Foil Pack Tacos
½ pounds ground beef or turkey
2 tablespoons taco seasoning
½ cup tomato sauce
1 can (15 Oz. Can) black, kidney, or pinto beans, drained
6 cups Sweet Potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
2 tablespoons butter
½ teaspoons salt
1-½ cup chopped fresh spinach (Note: I used frozen spinach which I thawed, drained, and squeezed dry)
1-½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
Sour cream, salsa, and/or guacamole for garnish
Preheat oven to 425ºF.
Brown ground meat in a skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in taco seasoning, tomato sauce, and beans. Set aside.
To assemble packets, spray the foil with non-stick spray. Place 1 cup sweet potato cubes in the center of each piece. Top with a small piece of butter (about 1 teaspoon) and a pinch or two of salt. Sprinkle some chopped spinach over the sweet potatoes, followed by about 1/3 cup of taco meat and a sprinkle of cheese. Fold the sides in, then bring the top and bottom ends of the foil together in the center and fold, sealing the packet.
Repeat with remaining ingredients, placing the packets on a rimmed cookie sheet. Bake for 25–30 minutes, until the sweet potatoes are tender.
Serve with sour cream, salsa, cilantro, and/or guacamole.
