3-5 sweet potatoes
1 lb. ground turkey, cooked
1 can black beans
1/2 bag organic corn
your favorite salsa
salt and pepper
red pepper flakes
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
While oven is preheating prepare sweet potatoes by stabbing them with a fork all over and placing them on a baking sheet with water covering the bottom.
Bake sweet potatoes for 45-60 minutes depending on how large the sweet potatoes are. When the sweet potatoes can be cut through the middle easily, they are finished.
While sweet potatoes are cooking cook turkey in a skillet seasoning with salt and pepper.
In another pan, cook the frozen corn and black beans together. If you like a little heat, add a sprinkle of cayenne pepper and 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes.
Once corn is starting to brown add turkey and corn and black bean mixture to the same pan and combine evenly.
When sweet potatoes are finished cooking, cut them in half but not all the way through. push the ends together to make room for the stuffing.
Add the stuffing (turkey, corn and black beans) warm in oven for a few minutes if needed.
Pour salsa over top and top with remaining toppings then serve!
