Preheat oven to 400. Poke holes in sweet potatoes with a fork and bake in oven (wrapped in foil) for about 45 minutes, or in microwave for about 10 minutes (wrapped in paper towel).
In the meantime, heat oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Add ground meat and start to break into smaller chunks with a wooden spoon. Add onions, garlic and seasoning to pan. Continue to break up meat until ground. Cook until meat is fully browned and onions soften.
For the sauce, stir all ingredients together well.
Split sweet potatoes down the middle and fill each one with ¼ of meat mixture.
Pour ¼ of the sauce onto each sweet potato and top with chopped peanuts.
