Cumin is a must-have spice in our house. I use it in my homemade taco seasoning and am always looking for new ways to do tacos. My Whole30 Taco Stuffed Sweet Potatoes were the result of craving tacos like mad and being sick of taco salads.

AmazonFresh is a great way to get quality groceries delivered straight to your door! They offer a wide range of produce, nuts and seeds, frozen foods, pasta, meat, alcohol, condiments, snacks, canned foods, and more. In many areas, they have a wider range than most grocery stores. Sadly, it's not available in my area, so I get my groceries delivered from Walmart+ between trips to Whole Foods.
Directions for Taco Sweet Potato Hash with Ground Turkey
1. In a large cast iron skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute and then add ground turkey. Use a wooden spoon to break apart meat and continue cooking approximately 8 minutes until browned.
2. Add cumin, chili powder, salt, and pepper. Stir well to incorporate.
3. Add onion and bell pepper, and cook for 3-4 minutes.
4. Add diced sweet potato and water. Stir and cover with a lid for approximately 6-8 minutes until the sweet potatoes soften. Add additional water during this process if needed to keep the meat from drying out.
5. Remove lid and add additional salt and pepper if needed. Top with shredded mozzarella and allow it to melt. Remove skillet from heat and garnish with fresh cilantro before serving.
Not everyone likes cilantro, so you may want to skip that part of this dish and add as a garnish that is optional. Otherwise, this is a great way to get kids to enjoy a sweet potato hash that is healthy, but full of the taco flavor they love.

This looks and sounds amazing!
This hash looks delicious, I have made a similar one with Thanksgiving flavors. I don’t think you can every have too much cumin, I think it is one of my favorites as well. Thanks for bringing this to FF.

I was just of making the same, but I always end up roasting my sweet potatoes. This looks amazing! Thanks for sharing at Fiesta Friday party!
This is a great skillet of goodness! Thanks so much for sharing your awesome post with us at Full Plate Thursday. Have a great week and come back to see us real soon!
Hi I was wondering if anyone has the nutrition information on this dish
I don’t have a set serving size for this, but it normally feeds my four boys and me with a little left over, so I pulled the nutrition at both 4 servings and 6 servings.
I just made this, and it is delicious! I had everything but cilantro alread. Thanks for posting something doable & delicious!
Glad you loved it 🙂 I’m a huge fan of healthy recipes that don’t keep me in the kitchen all day!
My husband stumled upon this recipe from Google. I was hesitant as I have never tried ground turkey and usually eat pretty clean. Turns out thus is a mean me, my husband (who only eats beef and corn), and my 18 month old love. It is by far one of her favorite meals even as she gets pickier. A staple in our family now and we make it one to two times a month easy!

I love this recipe and have made it at least 5 or 6 times now. I add a poached egg on top…… gives that extra yummy richness to the dish! Everything else is as directed!
Oh yum! I’ll have to try that next time I make this!
Wondering if anybody has ever made this ahead as a freezer meal? Does it reheat well?
I have not tried making this ahead as a freezer meal, but will need to soon!
Vegetarian style without the ground turkey is also amazing. We threw a sunnyside egg on top and mixed in come cottage cheese- perfection.
Yum! That sounds amazing!

Because of bacteria, you should never use wooden utensils with raw meat.
All utensils are at risk of harboring bacteria. I use primarily wooden and silicone utensils in my kitchen and make sure to keep everything clean. When using wooden utensils (and cutting boards) it’s important to remember to sand & reseason occasionally too.
Made this tonight for dinner and both my husband and I agree, it is REALLY bitter. Maybe it was supposed to be teaspoons rather than tablespoons for cumin? We followed the recipe exactly so not sure what went wrong.
It is 1.5 tablespoons of cumin but some people find cumin to be bitter. Next time you could cut it in half or leave out all the seasonings & use about 2 tablespoons of your favorite taco seasoning instead.
I just tried this tonight and love it. I did have to put in a lot more salt for my taste. And I used goat cheese instead which gave it a very rich flavor. Overall fantastic.
