I have a confession….I love taco Tuesday. Well I take that back, in my house we like #tacotuesday #mexicanmonday #fajitafriday #salsasaturday (is that a thing?). Okay, you get the point. We like our Mexican food in Casa del Siler. I almost always have either some taco meat or fajita meat cooked up to have on hand for lunches. 

Sweet Potato Taco Boats Meal Prep

Today my taco meat got a new twist and I used some baked sweet potato that I had meal prepped on Sunday to get my base. 

 

 

I absolutely love mixing sweet and savory flavors together. Usually for my Mexican dishes it is by adding in some corn. However, I must say that the Sweet Potato Taco Boat is definitely a close second to making a taco bowl using corn with all the fixings! Plus it is #mealprep friendly so can’t really complain there!
