Tacos with Sweet Potatoes & Grass-Fed Beef

By Micki Brown

Makes 12 Tacos


1 dozen warm tortillas (corn or taco-size flour)

1 pound grass-fed ground beef

1 medium to large sweet potato, peeled, diced

1 tbsp oil (I use coconut oil)

½ onion, chopped

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp chili powder

1 tsp garlic powder

Sea salt to taste

Black pepper to taste

1 small-medium head cabbage, chopped

4 medium tomatoes, diced

6 ounces natural cheddar cheese, grated

Salsa of choice


Brown the ground beef along with half of the cumin, chili powder, garlic, salt and pepper in a skillet over medium heat. In another skillet, heat the oil, then add the sweet potato, onions and the other half of the spices and cook over medium heat, stirring often, until the potatoes and onions are tender and partially browned. Add the sweet potato mixture to the beef mixture. To serve, spoon beef/potato mixture into warm tortillas, then top with cabbage, tomatoes, cheese, and salsa. Enjoy!

Note: To make this a vegetarian recipe, delete the beef and double up on the sweet potatoes.
