- In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium high heat. Add the onion, jalapenos, and sweet potatoes and cook until tender, about 7 minutes.
- Add the ground beef and cook until browned and cooked through, about 8 minutes. Add the garlic and spices and continue to cook for another minute or two.
- Add the lime juice and reduce heat to medium low. Toss and cook for an additional minute, until the potatoes are soft and the juices have mostly evaporated. Sprinkle with cheese if desired, pair with a non-starchy vegetable and enjoy!
Beef is a rich source of B vitamins, including thiamine, niacin, riboflavin, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12. These nutrients play roles in growth, metabolism, DNA repair, immune function, and more. Getting vitamins from food is always recommended first before supplementation. Adding more grass-fed beef to your diet can be a great way to get many of the B vitamins that your body needs and could even prevent the need for supplementation.*
