Note: Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.

Ingredients

1 Fresh Avocado, halved, seeded, peeled, cubed
4 medium sweet potatoes
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup diced onion
1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon salt
8 ounces ground white meat turkey
1 can (14 oz.) petite diced tomatoes in juice
1/4 cup grated cheddar cheese (optional)

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 400F.
  2. With a fork, pierce sweet potatoes all over several times. Place on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil; bake until soft and fork tender, about 45 minutes.

  5. Remove from heat and stir in avocado. Slice baked sweet potatoes lengthwise just until open. Fill with turkey mixture. Top with cheese, if desired. One serving=1 medium sweet potato.
