Taco Tuesday with a twist

So does this count as taco Tuesday? I was craving tacos with all the fixins’ But I decided to loaded up on a sweet potato instead. I used Meats2u Chicken patties to stuff them full of lean protein. It is part of the Chicken Lovers pack. You can get it here and use VIPKELSEY 1/2 off shipping and next day delivery Monday-Thursday

Ingredients:

  • 4 medium sweet potatoes, approximately 2 lbs total 
  • 1 package of Meats2u Chicken Patties
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt, more or less, to taste

Garnishment:

  • 1 medium avocado,  peeled and pitted
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt, more or less, to taste
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper, more or less, to taste
  • 1-2 tbsp lime juice, to taste
  • Salsa

Additional Garnishment:

  • freshly chopped cilantro
  • chives
  • Sliced lime, to squeeze
  • plain greek yogurt or sour cream
  • sliced jalapeños

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Poke each sweet potato all over with a fork. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper. Bake the sweet potatoes for approximately 40-50 minutes, or until fork tender. You can also microwave instead to cut down on time.

  2. During the last 10-15 minutes the sweet potatoes are baking, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil in a large skillet placed over medium heat. Once the oil is heated add the Meat2u patties breaking it apart as it cooks, so that there are no large chunks. Cook for 5-6 minutes or until the meet is no longer pink.

  3. Remove the sweet potatoes from the oven and allow them to cool before handling. They will be too hot to handle and slice into to stuff right out of the oven.

  4. While they are cooling, combine the avocado, salt, pepper, lime juice, and garlic powder into a small mixing bowl. Mash thoroughly to combine. Adjust seasonings and juice to your taste preference.

  5. To serve, cut each sweet potato in half and scoop out the centers into a bowl. Mash and mix up with salt/pepper. Refill the potatoes then top with mashed avocado mixture and salsa

  6. Garnish with any additional toppings of your choosing!
