Everyone Loves Tacos

Growing up in Southern California with its plentiful taco stands and trucks, I learned early to appreciate the almighty taco. Tacos were a staple and Fridays were always taco night in our house.

A New Kind of Taco For the Paleo Diet

However, we never had tacos like these Stuffed Sweet Potato Breakfast Tacos. While following a paleo diet and not eating corn I do miss nice crispy corn tortilla shells. But, filling a baked sweet potato with the taco meat, sautéed onions and guacamole makes such an amazing, filling meal it is easier to go without the traditional taco shell while satisfying that taco craving! These Stuffed Sweet Potato Breakfast Tacos are heaped with guacamole, YUM! In my opinion, Haas Avocados are the best for guacamole but, you can use whatever variety is available where you live. Definitely give this recipe a try.
