Inspired once again by my friend Natalie at The Perry’s Plate, her award winning Sweet Potato Foil Packet Tacos were a must try for me. I did have to swap out a few of her ingredients to make it paleo friendly, all in all, I think it is a perfect dinner for Cinco de Mayo. (and super easy)
Pre-heat oven to 425. Brown ground turkey/beef and onion in a skillet until cooked through. Add tomato paste or tomatoes and taco seasonings, stir well to combine. Remove from heat and set aside.
Natalie made hers a taco foil packet, (I did the first time, fun for kids, but not worth the work for me), I opted for a much easier approach, layering it like lasagna.
Coat 11×7 pan with grapeseed oil, layer in diced sweet potatoes, top with 1 tsp of butter or olive oil and a pinch of salt. Layer the chopped spinach, taco meat and corn. Cover with foil, and bake for 30-40 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are tender.
Remove from oven, let stand 10 minutes. Serve and top with pico de gallo, avocado, and cilantro.
