Sweet Potato Foil Pack Tacos!




Until about a year ago, I mainly thought of sweet potatoes as baby food or as a side dish at Thanksgiving.  I was never really fond of either one.  I decided to go out on a limb and try it because it looked interesting and was something different.  I was surprised that it was a hit with everyone and it’s since become a “regular” in our menu rotation!

As usual, I changed it up some for my family!

Here’s the recipe:

Sweet Potato Foil Pack Tacos!
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 

Serves: 4-6

Easy, family friendly foil pack recipe!
  • 1 lb ground beef (I use 93/7)
  • 1 can Ranch style beans
  • 2-3 Sweet potatoes (cubed)
  • Spinach leaves (fresh)
  • Shredded Cheese
  • Optional: Sour cream or avocado for garnish

  1. Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Brown ground beef and then add Ranch style beans. Let the mixture simmer on low to warm it.
  3. Cube the sweet potatoes.
  4. Take a 6-12 inch long piece of foil and spray it with cooking spray (I forgot to do this when I made it and it really does make a difference!) Layer with the sweet potatoes, meat mixture, and spinach leaves. I added the cheese when I assembled mine this time, but next time, I will wait until they’re done to add it because the cheese stuck to the foil.
  5. Bake 25-30 minutes. Add cheese and other toppings and eat!
