  1. 4 medium-sized sweet potatoes
  2. 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  3. 1 cup yellow onion, finely diced
  4. 1 cup green bell pepper, finely diced
  5. 2 cloves garlic, minced
  6. 1 pound ground beef
  7. 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  8. 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  9. 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  10. 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  11. 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  12. 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  13. 1/4 cup coconut aminos
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Add the tomato paste, mustard, chili powder, and red pepper flakes to the skillet and cook, stirring, until well combined.
  6. Pour in the coconut aminos and cook, stirring, until it has reduced.
  7. Remove from heat, cover and keep warm until the potatoes are finished cooking.
  8. 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!

    Ny hubby and I thoroughly enjoyed this recipe, and will have it often! We had to cook the potatoes longer, and next time will cube and roast them. Delicious and easy recipe!

    Loved this recipe. The sweet potatoes weren’t quite cooked through for us at 50 minutes, which was our only complaint. 2nd time we cubed the sweet potatoes and roasted (olive oil, salt and pepper) for 25 min @ 400 degrees (quick toss @ 15 min) and this was perfect for us.
