- 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

Prep Time: 20 mins Cook Time: 25 mins 8 Servings
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.
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.
