Day 3 of cleaning up Pinterest is number 18 on the list from the Buzz Feed article 20 Recipes that Won Pinterest in 2013. This double decker taco recipes looks delicious. They use wonton wrappers, canned refried beans and a packet of taco seasoning. I made my own refried black beans, and also used the our taco seasoning mix. I swapped out the wonton wrappers with thinly sliced sweet potato. I also replaced the ground beef with ground turkey. Also, this recipe is a healthy gluten free alternative to a traditional taco recipe.
While it is a loose interpretation of the original recipes, at least in looks as most of the other ingredients are the same, it was so delicious! I loved the crispness of the edges of the sweet potatoes as well as the earthy and filling taste of the refried black beans. Plus, now I have some left over black beans for the rest of the week. Or, maybe I’ll freeze them and use them later. Either way, its a score for me!
Take a look at the side by side nutrition data comparison. I mean it’s easy to see that cleaning up this recipe is worth it. The cleaned up version serves 4 large portions. So, it’s a big meal that will fill you up. The garnish is not included here, but a few tomatoes and onions won’t add much. Just don’t go crazy with the cheese.
