Ingredients
  

  • 4 sweet potatoes
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 c shredded Monterrey Jack cheese

Instructions
 

  • To begin, preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  • Wash the sweet potatoes and poke them several times with a fork. Set them on a baking sheet and bake for 50-60 minutes or until they are cooked. Once they are done, remove them from the oven, but do not turn it off yet.
  • While they are baking, cook the ground beef, onion and pepper together in a skillet, breaking up the meat as it cooks. When it is cooked, stir in the salt, pepper, cumin and smoked paprika.
  • Carefully cut a slit in each potato and scoop most of the insides into a bowl, leaving about a half inch layer of potato on the inside of the skin.
  • Add the meat mixture to the bowl with the sweet potato and stir it together to combine.
  • Spoon the mixture back into the potatoes and bake for 10 more minutes.
  • After they have finished baking, stop them with the shredded cheese.
  • Enjoy!
