Perfect as an appetizer or light lunch, sweet potato rounds make a delicious base for chipotle-laced ground turkey, sweet corn, and creamy avocado. Spritz with lime, and you'll find it's hard to eat only one. Serve alongside a fresh salad or whip up a round of margaritas, and you're set.

Sweet Potato Mini Tacos


  1. 1 large sweet potato
    1 teaspoon vegetable oil
    1 pound ground turkey
    2 cloves garlic, chopped
    1/2 cup salsa
    1 teaspoon chipotle in adobo sauce
    1 teaspoon flour
    1/4 cup water
    1 ear corn, cut from the cob and roasted
    1 avocado
    1/4 cup sour cream
    1 lime


  1. Preheat your oven to 400˚F.
  2. Wash the sweet potato, then cut into 1/2-inch-thick rounds. Lightly coat a sheet pan with vegetable oil, then add the rounds, flipping to coat sides. Bake for 20 minutes.
  3. While the potatoes are baking, add the ground turkey, garlic, salsa, chipotle, flour, and water to a saucepan over medium heat. Simmer together while breaking up the ground turkey until you have a smooth sauce.
  4. Cut the corn from the ear and place in a dry pan over high heat. Cook while stirring, allowing the corn to cook through and slightly char. Remove from heat.
  5. Mash the avocado and sour cream together, and set aside.
  6. Once the sweet potatoes are fork tender, remove them from heat and then top with the ground turkey sauce. Evenly distribute the corn, then top each with a dollop of the avocado cream. Serve with lime wedges and enjoy!
