Did you have a New Years Resolution? Did you follow through with it? I did. I followed the Whole 30 program for the month of January. It was not as hard as I thought it would be. This was one of my favorite recipes that I followed. You can have potatoes and sweet potatoes on Whole 30. I love sweet potatoes! So here is an easy way to make Whole 30 Chili Stuffed Sweet Potatoes.
I used two sweet potatoes and one regular yellow potato. My husband is weird and doesn’t like the sweet potatoes. I just pierced them with a fork a few times each and put them in the microwave on the baked potato setting.
This is another simple recipe for a busy week night if you have nothing planned. I just used a pound of 93% lean ground beef, some seasonings, salsa and potatoes. Cooking the potatoes actually took longer than preparing the rest of the recipe.
I used a simple chili spice mix. 1/2tsp of chipolte chill pepper, 1 tsp of cumin, 1/2 tsp smoked paprika, 1/2 tsp sea salt. I usually have the pink Himalayan salt, but I was out, so I used simple table salt instead.
So, just dump everything together in your pan and cook until the meat is no longer pink. I started off with 1/2 cup of salsa but I added more because I wanted more of a chili like consistency. I also like the medium salsa, that mild stuff is for wimps! Don’t be a wimp.
When the potatoes finish cooking, I just cut them open and put your chili mixture on top. There you have it: Whole 30 Chili Stuffed Sweet Potato.
I topped it with Dairy Free Ranch Dressing. My teenager enjoyed this, and that is always a plus! Here is the full printable recipe:
