Crockpot Sweet Potatoes

Contributing post from Kayla @ Time Redone

If there’s one thing I love, it is a quick, budget friendly and HEALTHY meal to serve my family.  It feels like we are always on the go right now – or maybe that is just the norm with 3 little ones, working full time and a husband who is busy (with a capital B).  With all that busy in our lives, it is so important for our kitchen to be a place that is happy, healthy and manageable.  One of my go-to budget friendly recipes is also one of the most simple recipes you might ever, I mean EVER see.

Are you ready?

For real, prepare to have your mind blow with simplicity.

Sweet potatoes cooked in the crockpot and then mashed and served on tortillas with taco-seasoned ground beef or black beans.  Delicious.  Healthy.  Cheap.  What more could you want?

Crockpot sweet potatoes also taste great as a side dish for grilled steak or salmon or topped with chili and cheese.

I know sweet potatoes will last for a while, but have you ever tried to poke holes in them and freeze them…they might take up a bit of space, so I’m not sure its worth it…
