Not gonna lie. Moving, a week-long trip to our favorite spot, Chelan, then Christmas and New Years. My body has been like, whoa. I was all over the map with my eating. I always try to make sure I’m feeding my family the best food possible, but sometimes when you’re on the go (for like a month), you fall off the wagon.
Luckily it’s really easy for us to get back on the horse (lots of wild west references in this post), and get back to our clean eating lifestyle.
And this ground turkey sweet potato skillet helps us do just that! I looooove me some sweet potatoes. I was never a big potato fan until I discovered sweet potatoes. Why oh why was my mother depriving us all those years as a child?! The only time we ever ate sweet potatoes was at Thanksgiving. But I have come to love them as the primary starch in my diet.
Then you add some ground turkey and it’s like a match made in heaven. My family only uses the best quality meats, and Foster Farms® Organic Ground Turkey is one of our go-to products. It’s USDA certified organic, 100% natural, organic vegetarian fed and no antibiotics have ever been used. We always grab a package (or two, or three) during our weekly Safeway trip.
THIS GROUND TURKEY SWEET POTATO SKILLET IS FULL OF PROTEIN, HEALTHY FAT, FIBER, VEGGIES, AND VITAMINS AND MINERALS.
I love the pop of flavor you get from the bell pepper and onion. There’s just something about onions that take a savory recipe up a notch, don’t you think?

Lots of wild west references , haha!
I wish I liked sweet potatoes, but I just can’t! There’s one casserole I make – somewhat similar to this actually because it’s “southwest” flavored – that I can get into but other than that, keep those potatoes away from me. All potatoes in fact, not just sweet ones. I know… I’m the only woman on earth who doesn’t like potatoes or sugary things. But I do love anything with cumin in it!
I LOVEEEE sweet potatoes, especially making them in a skillet like this where you’re not going crazy to enhance their natural sweetness. We’re not eating much meat, but when we do, I’ll adding this to the to make list for Justin.
Yum! This looks delicious! I’ll have to make it for my family soon. I don’t think I’ve seen that brand of turkey in my grocery store but I’ll look next time I go. Thanks for the recipe Tiffany!
This seriously looks so delicious. We love sweet potato so I think this is a great recipe to try1
