Taco Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Taco Stuffed Sweet Potatoes


Something about summertime and farmer's markets and all of that fresh, locally grown produce just makes me want to get a little creative and nutrient packed in the kitchen.  Every once in a while I can convince my kids and husband to get their veggies in with me and this is a great go-to.  It's so flavorful and totally customizable according to what you'd like to add/not add.

Bonus: This recipe is gluten and dairy free! A great option if you struggle with gut and digestive issues.
