Sweet Potato Foil Packet Tacos

Carol first brought this recipe for community group one night and I fell in love! So, I quadrupled the recipe and made it for my dinner swap!

½ pounds Ground Beef Or Turkey
2 Tablespoons Taco Seasoning
½ cups Tomato Sauce
1 can (15 Oz. Can) Black, Kidney, Or Pinto Beans, Drained
6 cups Sweet Potatoes, Peeled And Cut Into 1/2-inch Cubes
2 Tablespoons Butter
½ teaspoons Salt
1-½ cup Chopped Fresh Spinach
1-½ cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
Sour Cream, Salsa, And/or Guacamole For Garnish

Preheat oven to 425ºF.
Brown ground meat in a skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in taco seasoning, tomato sauce, and beans. Set aside.
To assemble packets, spray the foil with non-stick spray. Place 1 cup sweet potato cubes in the center of each piece. Top with a small piece of butter (about 1 teaspoon) and a pinch or two of salt. Sprinkle some chopped spinach over the sweet potatoes, followed by about 1/3 cup of taco meat and a sprinkle of cheese. Fold the sides in, then bring the top and bottom ends of the foil together in the center and fold, sealing the packet.
Repeat with remaining ingredients, placing the packets on a rimmed cookie sheet. Bake for 25–30 minutes, until the sweet potatoes are tender.
Serve with sour cream, salsa, and/or guacamole.
Makes 6 servings.

You need to do a post here (and on TBFL) for how to do a meal swap.
