  • i've made taco stuffed baked potatoes before. i would brown some ground turkey or deer meat, season it. then top the potato with the meat, cheese, salsa, olives, tomatoes & sour cream.
    pretty tasty. :)

  • Sweet Potato Burritos
    3 teaspoons olive oil
    1 onion, chopped
    4 cloves garlic, minced
    6 cups canned kidney beans, drained (I use home cooked black beans; you can use any bean)
    2 cups water
    3 tablespoons chili powder
    2 teaspoons ground cumin
    4 teaspoons prepared mustard
    1 pinch cayenne pepper, or to taste
    3 tablespoons soy sauce
    4 cups cooked and mashed sweet potatoes
    12 whole wheat tortillas, warmed
    shredded cheese (whatever you have)
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat oil in a medium skillet, and saute onion and garlic in until soft. Stir in beans, and mash. Gradually stir in water, and heat until warm. Remove from heat,
    and stir in the chili powder, cumin, mustard, cayenne pepper and soy sauce. Divide bean mixture and mashed sweet potatoes evenly between the warm flour tortillas. Top with cheese. Fold up tortillas burrito style. Bake for 12 minutes in the preheated oven, and serve

  • JustJacki-that is a really good idea too!

    This reminds me of the pasta thats filled with potatoes you buy froze in the store.

  • Growing up my family used very little ground beef and added potatoes to our taco meat. It extended the meat. you can add onion or taco powder or whatever seasonings to taste. sounds really yummy.
