Loaded Sweet Potatoes

Loaded sweet potatoes – it’s like a fully loaded Mexican baked potato (oh, that sounds so good!). We had left over taco items and no shells, so I created this recipe on the fly. Let’s get cooking!

  • 2-3 small sweet potatoes
  • 1 pound of ground turkey
  • a heaping tablespoon of tex-mex spice
  • 2 tablespoons of grape seed oil
  • jalapeño guacamole recipe
  • blender tomatillo salsa
  • greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese
  • hot sauce
  • salt to taste


  • First, set the oven to 400 on roast. Then, wash the sweet potatoes and slice in half lengthwise. Rub the skin with about 1/2 a tablespoon of grape seed oil and sprinkle with salt.
  • You want to bake them for about 25-40 minutes until the inside is nice and tender.
  • While the sweet potatoes are cooking, all the rest of the grape seed oil into a cast iron pan and cook the ground turkey with the tex-mex spice and salt to taste on medium. Cook about 7-10 minutes until the turkey is cooked through.
  • Then, mash up the jalapeño guacamole and blend the tomatillo blender salsa. These two recipes are some of my favourites – full of flavour, packs a punch and brings so much freshness to a dish. In between checking on the sweet potatoes and stirring the turkey, shred the cheese and get out the other condiments – I like greek yogurt and hot sauce.
  • Once the turkey is done and the sweet potatoes are cooked time to load up. Eat and enjoy.
