My New, Easy Dinner Obsession!
Have I told you that I’m married to a carnivore? And that I am not a carnivore? This presents a problem at dinnertime. While I’m not a vegetarian, I just stray away from eating a lot of red meat (frankly, I don’t care for it much), and opt for fish, chicken and vegetarian options.
The other night, when I was making carne asada tacos for the men (hubby and two little boys—the baby doesn’t eat real food yet!), I got this random idea to saute up two diced sweet potatoes. I added a tablespoon of maple syrup (to bring out the natural sweetness), a tiny drizzle of olive oil, a teaspoon of kosher salt (to make it a bit more savory) and here’s the kicker: a half teaspoon of red pepper flakes.
When the sweet potatoes were soft, I scooped them into a tortilla and topped with shredded cheese (a Mexican blend). The result? Amazing! You have to try this yummy idea. You will love it!
