- 4 medium-sized sweet potatoes
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1 cup yellow onion, finely diced
- 1 cup green bell pepper, finely diced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 tablespoons tomato paste
- 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
- 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
- 1/4 cup coconut aminos
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Scrub and pat dry the sweet potatoes. Pierce each sweet potato several times with a fork. Place the sweet potatoes on a rimmed baking sheet lined with foil. Bake until tender, about 45 minutes.
- Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions, bell pepper, and garlic and saute until slightly tender, about 4-5 minutes.
- Add the ground beef and cook, breaking up the meat with the back of a spoon, until the meat is browned and cooked through (no longer pink), about 7 minutes more. Season with the salt and pepper while browning.
- Add the tomato paste, mustard, chili powder, and red pepper flakes to the skillet and cook, stirring, until well combined.
- Pour in the coconut aminos and cook, stirring, until it has reduced.
- Remove from heat, cover and keep warm until the potatoes are finished cooking.
- When potatoes are done, remove from oven and make a slit in the top of each sweet potato. Stuff with sloppy joe mixture, serve and enjoy!
