Sweet Potato Pie with a Kick!

My friend recently started a blog. Obviously I am following it, and you should too! (Check it out here). She posted a sweet potato pie and I knew I had to make it. Tonight was the night. My husband was away all last week so he was dying for a home cooked meal (other than Easter dinners). He got lucky today! I made blueberry oatmeal muffins and the potato pie! J The potatoes are sweet, but the meat mixture has a bit of a kick to it, which I really enjoyed.

-          1 lb lean ground beef
-          1 onion, chopped
-          1 red pepper, chopped
-          1 tbsp minced garlic
-          1 tbsp chilli powder
-          ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
-          ¼ tsp dried oregano
-          ¼ tsp sea salt
-          1 can diced tomatoes
-          2-3 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into ¼-inch slices
-          1 tbsp EVOO
-          1 tbsp flour
-          Salt & Pepper
-          Optional Toppings: Shredded cheddar cheese and chopped green onion

  1. Over medium heat, brown ground beef until almost cooked through and drain fat.
  2. Add onion, pepper, garlic, chilli powder, cayenne pepper, oregano and salt. Cook until onion and pepper is tender (about 5 minutes).
  3. Stir in canned tomatoes and cook until juices are evaporated (about 20 minutes).
  4. Meanwhile, toss potato slices with EVOO, flour, salt and pepper.
  5. Lightly coat a baking dish with cooking spray. Create 2 layers of potato slices and top with meat mixture and cover with foil.
  6. Bake at 350oF for 45 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Top with cheese and green onions when 5 minutes remain.
