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:
- 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
- Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees.
- Brown ground beef and then add Ranch style beans. Let the mixture simmer on low to warm it.
- Cube the sweet potatoes.
- 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.
- Bake 25-30 minutes. Add cheese and other toppings and eat!
