Paleo Chili Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

If you want to tone down the heat, you can play around with the level of heat. For the kids, omit the chipotle powder entirely and stuck to only chili powder. For a little more heat, feel free to use one teaspoon of chipotle!

prep time: 10 minutes

cooking time: 40-45 minutes

yields: 8 servings


1 onion roughly chopped

1 red pepper roughly cut

3 medium carrots, peeled and roughly chopped

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 tbsp olive oil + more for potatoes

1 lb grass fed beef

1 tsp dried oregano

1 tsp chipotle chili powder (optional)

3 tsp chili powder

1 tbsp ground cumin

1/2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

3/4 tsp salt divided

1/4 tsp pepper

1 15 oz can tomato sauce

1 15 oz can diced or petite diced tomatoes

1 tbsp maple syrup (omit if whole30)

1 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped plus more for garnish

4 medium sweet potatoes

avocado for topping

optional: purple cabbage


food processor (optional)

dutch oven or large soup pan

aluminum foil


Preheat oven to 400. Rinse and dry sweet potatoes. With a fork, poke holes in each potato all around. Lay each potato on a piece of foil and brush with a few drops of olive oil. Wrap in foil tightly and bake for an hour or until potatoes are soft. This depends on size. 

Add pepper, carrot and onion to food processor and pulse until the vegetables are fairly small. If you don't want to use a food processor, just chop these small.

Preheat dutch oven and add olive oil or ghee. Add vegetables and 1/4 tsp of salt and cook stirring frequently until veggies are soft - about 5-8 minutes. Add garlic and cook for 30 seconds.

Next, add beef to pan and break up with wooden spoon. Cook for about 10 minutes stirring regularly, until meat is fully cooked. Add all the spices, 1/2 tsp salt, pepper and cocoa powder and cook for 1 minute. 

Add tomato sauce, diced tomatoes and maple syrup (optional) and simmer for 20 minutes. 

Once chili is finished, add cilantro. 

To assemble, cut sweet potatoes in half and place a generous amount of chili on top. You can garnish with additional cilantro and avocado.
