Original recipe makes 16 tacos

  •  1 yam, peeled and diced
  •  1 tablespoon olive oil
  •  3/4 pound ground turkey
  •  1/2 cup chopped sweet onion
  •  1 clove garlic, minced
  •  4 jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced
  •  1 tablespoon chili powder
  •  1 teaspoon ground cumin
  •  1/2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
  •  1/2 teaspoon salt
  •  1/2 cup tomatillo salsa
  •  1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  •  16 warm flour tortillas


  1. Put the diced yam in a microwave-safe bowl; cook in the microwave until cooked through and fork-tender, stirring once, 5 to 7 minutes.
  2. Coat the bottom of a large skillet with olive oil and place over medium heat; cook and stir the turkey until crumbled and evenly brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir the onion, garlic, and jalapeno pepper into the turkey and continue cooking until the onions begin to caramelize, 7 to 10 minutes. Season with the chili powder, cumin, Cajun seasoning, and salt. Pour the salsa over everything; fold the sweet potatoes into the mixture. Allow the mixture to cook until the excess moisture evaporates. Garnish with the cilantro. Serve with the warm tortillas.
