READY IN: 50mins

This is a blend of sweet and regular potatoes. It's vegetarian, so feel free to sub. in real ground beef. Don't remember where I got it!

DH and I really enjoyed this even though neither of us likes sweet potatoes much. I used beef instead of TVP. And I used frozen mixed veggies instead of just green beans. This was a very satisfying meal in one. We served it with a salad. Thanks for the great meal. Reviewed for Please review recipe tag.
