Bacon Chili on Baked Sweet Potato

Another one of my fave go-to meals. And it makes enough that I have leftovers (I’m a sucker for leftovers!) or to freeze for those nights when you are just too exhausted to think straight.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Poke holes in your sweet potatoes with a fork, wrap in foil, place on rack in oven and cook for about 30-45 minutes (depending on the thickness) or until potato is soft and cooked through.
  2. In a large pot, heat coconut oil over med-high heat, add onions and saute until translucent. Add garlic 1-2 minced garlic cloves and sauté for 20-30 seconds. Then add ground beef, season with Himalayan pink salt and black pepper, and cook until no longer pink. Drain off fat and set aside.
  3. In the same pot, add the cubed bacon and let cook down. Once it's browned and a bit crisp, add 1 garlic clove and veggies.
  4. Let cook for about 5 or 6 minutes, then add the cooked ground beef and all the spices and mix. Then add tomato sauce and fire roasted tomatoes.
  5. Mix well and cook on low for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  6. Split open your sweet potato and pour the chili on top.
  7. Enjoy!!
Recipe Notes

To make this a one pot meal, bake the sweet potatoes for half the time (or even zap them in the microwave to cut down on time) then cube the sweet potatoes and toss them in the pot with the rest of the veggies. Increase the simmer time to approx 10 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are cooked through.

To make this a paleo friendly alternative, you can skip the kidney beans.

Chicken Green Bean and Tomato Curry

This is one of my go-to faves and the kiddos love it! Depending on what I have on hand, I will switch out ground beef (1-1.5 pounds) for the chicken and it’s just as amazing.

  2. Add chicken, and season with Himalayan pink salt and pepper and cook for a few minutes until chicken is about halfway done.
  3. Add in spices, tomatoes and broth and bring to a boil. Once boiling, cover, reduce heat to medium and cook about 10 minutes.
