Healthy Baked Sweet Potato with Easy and Delicious Homemade Chili
A delicious sweet potato, fluffy on the inside and crispy on the outside, topped with a super quick and easy homemade chili, this healthy sweet potato is my favourite dish to tuck into on chilly weeknights.
- 1 small sweet potato
- 4.4oz / 125g lean ground beef
- 1/4 cup chopped bell pepper
- 1/3 cup tomato sauce / passata
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
- 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/8 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Prick the sweet potato all over with a fork. Place on a piece of kitchen paper and cook in the microwave for 8 minutes, or until completely soft and cooked through. Alternatively, bake the sweet potato in the oven at 400F/200C for 30 minutes, until cooked through.
While the potato is cooking, add the mince and bell pepper to a small frying pan over a medium heat. Brown the mince for 5 minutes and drain off the fat.
Stir in the rest of the ingredients (tomato sauce/passata, cumin, paprika, chili powder, salt, oregano and cinnamon) and leave to simmer for 10 minutes.
Slice the sweet potato in half, fluff up the insides with a fork and top with the homemade chili.
