Southwest Sweet Potato Hash

Healthy and Delicious Sweet Potato Southwest Hash with Ground Beef

Welcome to your sweet potato and beef sweet dream. I was sent a similar recipe by a friend who tempted me to try it. Unfortunately, I forgot to bookmark the recipe so I kind of winged it. It did turn out amazing so I wanted to share. If you want a sweet and sassy southwest meal that’s bursting with superfoods, this is it.

I chose to serve this with a southwest salad although you can serve with any green veggie to even out the meal. One variation I think I will try next time is adding broccoli into the mix as well for extra greens.


  • 2 large sweet potatoes (peeled and cubed)

  • 1 large yellow pepper

  • 1 large red pepper

  • 1/2 large white onion

  • 1 lb of grass-fed ground beef

  • 1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro

  • 2 tbsp organic taco seasoning

  • 1/3 cup grass-fed organic shredded mozzarella cheese

  • 1/2 cup water

  • 2 tbsp cold pressed extra virgin olive oil


  1. In a large sauce pan or skillet place the cubed sweet potatoes with the water over med high heat and cover with a lid and cook until the sweet potatoes are fork tender (about 5-8 minutes.)

  2. In a separate pan cook ground beef and cilantro down with 1 tbsp of taco seasoning until cooked all the way through.

  3. When potatoes are fork tender, add in peppers, onion, remaining taco seasoning and drizzle over 2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil and saute veggies until tender uncovered.

  4. When the beef is cooked, add to main sweet potato pan and then mix. Top with mozzarella cheese and let it melt.

  5. Serve and enjoy!
