Southwestern Sweet Potato Foil Packets

So after my interesting end to the work day, I got chopping on my latest recipe. After saving my recycle bin from certain peril, peeling and chopping sweet potatoes with my Santoku knife felt pretty good.

Chop, chop, chop
Meat, bean, tomato mixture
Topped with a little salsa
Southwestern Sweet Potato Foil Packets
[Adapted from this recipe]
1/2 lb. ground turkey
2 tablespoons of taco seasonsings
2 large sweet potatoes, peeling and cut in 1/2 inch cubes
1 can of black beans, drained
1 can of diced tomatoes, drained
Mexican cheese

Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Brown turkey. Without draining, add taco seasonings, drained beans, and drained tomatoes. Set to the side.

Peel and cut potatoes. Take foil squares and spray with cooking spray. First, add 1 cup of sweet potatoes, then spray top of potatoes again lightly with oil. Top with 1/2 cup of meat mixture. Top with a sprinkle of cheese, then wrap and place on a cookie sheet with sides. Bake for 25 minutes or until potatoes are tender.

You will probably have a little bit of extra meat mixture, which you add for a little something extra if you need it!
