I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. If you’ve been watching my Instagram stories I actually got a lot of de-cluttering done. Trevor and I will be moving again soon, so I am trying to get all our stuff organized and ready now. We accumulate so much stuff over time it’s so important to go through it now and then and clean out! It feels good to lighten up the load. Well here’s a segue for you… my house is no longer loaded with stuff but these potatoes sure are. Oh gosh, can I be anymore corny? Yes. Yes I can. Ask Trevor, he’ll tell you!
These loaded potatoes though, they’re sooo yummy! It almost reminds me of sloppy joes but without all the junk and so called “natural seasonings”. Does that blow your mind? Whenever there’s msg or fake stuff in food they call it, “natural seasonings”. Whatever… that’s a battle for another day. These are just super flavorful and delicious and no junk!
If you saw my Instagram story a few days ago, you probably saw me making this meal. I showed that it’s a great weeknight meal, because once you get everything in the pot to simmer you can walk away and get other things done. It’s also a very cost effective meal. Yes it has meat but because of the two cans of beans you end up getting a very large amount of food. In other words, you get a big bang for your buck!
This meal is great for the paleo diet! You can put it over any kind of potato or honestly even leave out the potato all together. I really liked mine over my Japanese sweet potato (pictured in middle). Those are the kind that are purple on the outside but a whitish green color on the inside. They have a really yummy flavor and aren’t quite as sweet as the standard sweet potato.

- 1 pound ground turkey meat

- Pinch of garlic powder

- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup enchilada sauce
- About 8 potatoes or sweet potatoes
- Bake potatoes in a 350ºF oven until cooked through.
- Dice your onion small and brown it in a large pan with your turkey meat.
- Mix the ketchup, spicy brown mustard, hot sauce, nutritional yeast, old bay seasoning, liquid smoke, salt, garlic powder and paprika in a bowl.
- Drain and rinse the beans and add into your pan with the meat. Mix in the sauce, water and enchilada sauce. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Cook covered for about 10 minutes.
- Enjoy on top of your baked potato!
- If you do not have enchilada sauce on hand you can replace with a can of tomato sauce. You can also just double your ketchup sauce mixture. I had it on hand and it tasted good, otherwise I wouldn't have gone out of my way to get it.
