Ryan and I were privileged to attend the American Farm Bureau Convention in Atlanta January 8-12. We enjoyed everything except the ice storm! Ryan came home with a bag full of goodies from the trade show. As I was sorting through the treasures, I found this recipe card from the Beef Check-Off booth. It sounds good and looks pretty simple, so I thought I would share it with you. I plan to try it this week.

12ounces cooked beef (such as steak,roast or pot roast)
1 large sweet potato,unpeeled,cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1 medium yellow onion,chopped
1 tablespoon taco seasoning mix
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 tablespoons reduced-fat or regular dairy sour cream
1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
Chopped fresh cilantro

2. Meanwhile,combine sour cream and hot sauce in small bowl. Set aside.

3. Add beef to potato mixture. Continue to cook 5 minutes or until beef is heated through, stirring occasionally,adding 1 to 2 tablespoons water, if needed to avoid sticking.
