Enchilada Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

So I made these enchilada stuffed sweet potatoes on a whim the other day, and I’m so glad I did. They are AMAZING! And so easy! This is a different spin on my Enchilada Pasta recipe, except I removed the “pasta,” and made it super easy with baked sweet potatoes. I love the sweet and slightly spicy combo that this recipe has; it’s for sure going to be on repeat in my house!

For the love of your oven, please poke a few holes in those sweet potatoes before you bake them! Poke it like you mean it! When I was a kid, I was making baked potatoes, and didn’t realize why my mom always stabbed them with a fork beforehand. Just a useless step, right? Uh, NO! I went to check on my potatoes by gently poking one with a knife, and it exploded! Everywhere. I don’t remember cleaning up any of that mess, so thank you to my parents for saving me from that one! Please tell me I’m not the only one that this has happened to?! Lesson learned! 

I hope you enjoy this super easy and delicious enchilada stuffed sweet potatoes recipe! Happy cooking!

Enchilada Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Scrub your sweet potatoes and pierce the skin a few times with a fork. Place the sweet potatoes on a baking sheet and bake for 30-45 minutes, or until they’re easily pierced with a fork.
  2. While the potatoes are cooking, let’s make the sauce! Heat the ghee or coconut oil in a medium sized pan over medium-low heat. Add the diced onion and sauté until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the beef to the pan and sauté until cooked through. Drain the fat if needed/desired. Add the garlic and sauté until it becomes fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the chili powder, cumin and salt to the pan and stir it like you mean it! Add the tomato sauce to the pan and stir again like you mean it! Simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Remove the potatoes from the oven once they’re cooked through, cut open in the middle and stuff with the enchilada filling. These are extra delicious topped with chives, chopped onion, and avocado!

    Just wondering what Tomato sauce you use? I’m in Australia and want to make this. Are you referring to a tomato paste, or like a Ketchup? ?

      Hi Tish, this is the tomato sauce that I use – http://amzn.to/1OAcbfR (affiliate link). The ingredients in the tomato sauce are just strained tomatoes, so it wouldn’t be like a ketchup that typically has sugar and other ingredients added. I hope that helps! 🙂

    These were delicious, thank you! I wish that the folks above that loved it would rate it, because when you Google search it, it has a 2-star review and it is soooo much better than 2 stars!~ =D I will admit, that I only used 2 Tablespoons of chili powder though. It was delicious. Thank you! =D

      So happy you like it, Mindi! Do you mean ideas for what to do with the filling? If that’s what you mean, you could wrap it in lettuce, serve it on a salad or serve it with my cilantro lime cauliflower rice! 🙂
