This is a very easy and very filling weeknight meal and is easy to switch up depending on what is in the pantry. Toss the potato in the oven, turn on the game, and finish up at half time!

We LOVED this recipe but we made a few tweaks: 2 bell peppers caramelized with the onions (butter brown sugar salt) and lite sour cream instead of yogurt. We also used ground turkey instead of veggie meat. Absolutely delicious! Read More

I was lacking quite a few of the ingredients so I switched up the recipe quite a bit. I used a green bell pepper instead of red and also added some red-pepper flakes because I didn't have a green chile pepper and used butter in the bottom of my skillet--not olive oil. I didn't have yogurt so I sprinkled mild cheddar cheese and I used regular ground beef 80% lean. This is very far from the original recipe but the concept was what I was after. The final product even after so much switching around wasn't bad. It is very filling. It took an hour to cook my large sweet potatoes and in the end my dad my mom and I split one potato into quarters and I couldn't even finish my share. (We're not big eaters to start with). On the whole my version wasn't bad but my version isn't something I'd really go out of my way to have again. Maybe when I have the right ingredients I'll try it again. This was just an alternative to the hamburger helper my dad intending on making and I'm getting to really hate hamburger helper! Read More

I am very surprised this has not received more reviews. As it stands it's a 5 star but it leaves so much room to play w ingredients as well! We love it and make it often. We use ground beef or ground turkey -- sometimes I sauté fresh garlic with the veggies and sometimes we add cilantro on top. This is great any night of the week but we do love it in the fall and winter on football days! In the summer we also use all of our ingredients from our local farmers market...even our organic beef. What a great recipe to utilize readily accessible staple ingredients! Our 3 kiddos love it too! Read More

Used soy chorizo and it was muy fabuloso! It didn't need the yogurt (but it was good with it) as it was wonderful without it. The spiciness of the chorizo blended well with the sweetness of the potato. Read More

This was very good as written with some adjustments to our personal taste I think it could be amazing. Next time I think I will add in garlic to the onions and peppers and a few spices. Read More

I really liked this recipe it's healthy and tasty. I read other reviews that you can substitute other vegetables so I used zucchini and green onion that's all I had in the kitchen. Very good! Read More
