Smashed Sweet Potato Tacos

SNOW DAY!  Means I actually have time to write a post!

You know what's awesome? When blogger randomly deletes all the pictures on your old posts.  It's pretty sweet.  You should try it sometime.  I'm currently trying to update everything.  It's a blasty-blast.

Sooooooooo this isn't really a recipe, just a throwing stuff together to make deliciousness.  But I suppose that is the definition of a recipe, eh?

I posted this on a "facebook contest" to win 10 lbs of grass fed beef.  I didn't win. :(  Probably because they couldn't taste this through the screen.  Then I definitely would've won.  Oh well.  The sweet/spicy combination is amazing.  And anything topped with guacamole is a winner in my book.  It makes great leftovers, too.  Just double the recipe!

Seriously though, this couldn't get any easier.  You could even bake the sweet potatoes in the crockpot, a la PaleOMG style.  That's what I did.

2 Baked Sweet Potatoes
1 lb grass fed ground beef (or bison, or turkey, or chicken)
Taco Seasoning (see below)
1/4 cup water

Taco Seasoning:
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp chipotle seasoning (or 1/4 cayenne- more if you like it hot)
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp black pepper

Sour Cream

Brown your ground beef over medium high heat, breaking up until no longer pink.  Add taco seasoning and water, simmer until water cooks off.  Pour taco meat over smashed baked sweet potatoes, top with whatever your little heart desires.  Devour.  You're welcome.

I think this is my new favorite meal, ever.  Like ever, ever.  I've definitely made it once a week since discovering it.  #truestory
