We are big lovers of Mexican food at my house, and this Taco Pie is no exception! So here’s what happened. I made the English version of Shepherd’s Pie. My whole family freaked out with joy and practically licked their plates. So I thought, “Why not take that recipe, give the meat and veggies a taco flair, and top it with sweet potatoes?” And we now have a new beloved Taco Pie creation!
My Go-To Frozen Sweet Potatoes: Cascadian Farm Organic
Truth be told, I did start testing this dish with sweet potatoes that I peeled, boiled, and mashed for the top of the casserole (similar to the Shepherd’s Pie recipe). But it felt like a lot of extra work (and dishes to clean) for something that I wanted to be a quick weeknight meal.
So I was thrilled when I learned about Cascadian’s brand new fire roasted sweet potatoes made from only one ingredient – organic sweet potatoes! It was honestly the perfect substitute because sometimes a shortcut like that on a busy weeknight can make all the difference. :)
