A friend of mine at Bites raves about this recipe. I made it gluten and dairy free for you. I can't wait to try it!

½ pounds Ground Beef Or Turkey
2 Tablespoons Taco Seasoning (go here to make your own!)
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 Earth's Balance Butter Alternative or Extra Virgin Olive Oil
½ teaspoons Salt
1-½ cup Chopped Fresh Spinach
1-½ cup Shredded Daiya Cheddar Cheese
Vegenaise (tastes like 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 alternative or a little drizzle of olive oil(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 Daiya 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 Vegenaise, salsa, and/or guacamole.
Makes 6 servings.
