Cheesy Taco Beef and Kale Bowls with Spiralized Sweet Potatoes

Every once in a while, when I’m out at an Italian spot known for their meatballs, I’ll order the meatballs. I don’t think twice about it (eating beef.) Outside of that, I don’t eat beef. There are many reasons why I choose to only occasionally eat beef, but there are no foods on the never list, because I live a life free of restrictions like that.

Of course, there are foods that I’ll never keep in my household, but that doesn’t mean that I won’t enjoy them outside the home. For me, my home is a place that inspires me to be happy and healthy. Thus, I only stock my pantry and fridge with foods that make me feel my best, since I’m home the most!

However, since I’ve started cooking all of Luca’s meals, I’ve been trying to give him a variety of foods and expose him to all types of foods and flavors. Lately, I’ve been finding ways to give him more meats, since it doesn’t come naturally in my personal meal prep each week.

I wanted to “test” beef out on him – would he like it? I can usually tell within the first 3 seconds if he’s going to like the food. And the verdict is out – he loved it!

The ground beef is seasoned with my homemade taco seasoning (in the recipe!), some broth, and of course, some shredded cheese. This gives the bowl a sauce-like consistency. Every bite is full of flavor, texture, and nutrients!

If you’re like me and don’t eat much beef, try these bowls with ground turkey! They’re kid and adult friendly!

Nutritional Information & Recipe

Cheesy Taco Beef and Kale Bowls with Spiralized Sweet Potatoes

Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time25 mins
Total Time40 mins


  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes peeled, Blade D, noodles trimmed
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 cups chopped curly kale
  • 1 small white onion diced
  • 1/2 diced green bell pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ¼ cup broth beef or chicken
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 large avocado pitted, peeled, and sliced
  • optional to garnish: sliced scallions


  • Heat half of the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once oil is shimmering, add the sweet potato noodles and season with salt and pepper. Cook, tossing frequently, until wilted and cooked through, about 5 minutes. Set aside into a plate or bowl and cover to keep warm.
  • To the same skillet used to cook the sweet potato, add in the kale, season with salt and pepper, and let cook until wilted, about 5 minutes. Set aside into a plate or bowl and cover to keep warm.
  • Add the remaining olive oil into the same skillet and add the onion, green pepper and garlic. Cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring frequently, until vegetables begin to soften. Add the tomato paste and stir to coat.
  • Push the veggies to the side of the skillet and add in the beef. Break up with a wooden spoon and crumble the beef. Season with cayenne, chili powder, paprika, oregano, onion powder, cumin, and season with salt. Cook for 7 minutes or until beef is cooked through. Once the beef is cooked through, combine with the vegetable mixture. Add the broth and let cook for 2-3 minutes to thicken. Stir in the cheese and remove from heat.
  • Divide the sweet potato noodles, kale, and beef into bowls. Top with avocado and garnish with scallions, if using.

Thanks for this! I haven't eaten much red meat for a lot of years, but recently I was diagnosed as anemic, so I'm eating it more, as well as trying to eat more leafy greens. So this is perfect!
Pam says:

went for a nice long walk outside with the kids (we haven’t been able to do that for a while, because it’s just been so freezing and/or snowing) 🥶 and then we decided to pick up some to-go sandwiches and while we waited, the kids had some banana bread and juice 🍊🍌🍞 luca said, “mama I want to stay here alllll day!” which made me feel sad, because we haven’t felt comfortable dining indoors yet, and I’m sure he misses the people watching at restaurants on the weekends 😔 it’s okay, I’m just filing this under “things we get to look forward to when it’s safe again” 💋 #jerseycity ...

a year and 5 days ago, I started @invisalign to correct my cross bite and fix some crowding on my lower teeth. 👄🦷 a few weeks into treatment, my dentist gave me some extra aligners (the clear trays that you wear that miraculously shift your teeth) “just in case” the Corona virus came to the US and the office has to shutdown. well, a LOT has happened in this past year (my teeth and bite have corrected and Corona certainly made its way here!) and today was the final appointment to perfect my teeth and bite with some veneers (which I haven’t quite gotten used to yet, but all of the stories you shared and kind compliments you gave in my DMs has made me feel A LOT better.) 😬⁣

in two weeks, I get my overnight retainers, which I’ll wear forever (but only to sleep.) aside from that, I’m done with #invisalign and it feels SO good. I cannot believe how drastically it has changed my face, and when I watch myself talk in a video or look at a photo of myself, I no longer cringe at my lisp or how crooked my face looks. it wasn’t something I was self-conscious of every day, but it’s definitely something that I noticed when looking at photos and it secretly bothered me. it’s silly, but it did! ⁣

now I can proudly say that I love my smile, and I feel more confident than ever. it’s a shame I’ll have to wear a mask and cover up this expensive smile 😂😂😂😂 but hopefully in 2022, I’ll be able to fully whip it out. right?!! 🤞🏼💉 ⁣

I’m going to write a blog post all about the process, share a ton of before and afters, but I wanted to ask.... are there any questions you have specifically that you’d like me to include/address? leave a comment below and let me know! and in the meantime, you can check out my Invisalign highlight for the whole journey!
