There are several ways you can adjust this recipe to your liking.
Use ground beef instead of ground turkey.
Try another type of bean instead of the cannelloni beans. Black beans, chili beans, pinto beans, you name it.
Don't like spicy? Use regular diced tomatoes instead of fire-roasted, go easy on the chili powder and cumin, and skip the jalapeño (or just the seeds).
Don't like sweet potatoes? Oh c'mon try them anyway! :)
