It took me awhile to fully embrace the sweet potato. It’s not something that my parents ever prepared for me when I was growing up. The only sweet potatoes I’d ever seen came in a can and were served topped with marshmallows. It just didn’t appeal to me.

However, when I did my first Whole 30, regular potatoes were off limits. I made peace with sweet potatoes. And lo and behold! My husband who doesn’t like “sweet food” came to love the sweet garnet spud as well. He orders sweet potato fries when we go out now.

These Chili Stuffed Sweet Potatoes are a nice riff on an old classic. I’ve beefed up the chili with a few generous handfuls of kale and other cruciferous veggies and stuffed it inside a baked sweet potato. The chili is very freezer-friendly, so you can easily throw together this meal in the time it takes to nuke your potatoes.

How you top the Chili Stuffed Sweet Potatoes is really up to you. You can approach it from the paleo/Whole 30 side and just add salsa, hot sauce, and avocado. Or if you’re doing dairy, pile on a handful of pepper jack cheese. Either way, it’s super filling.

To keep your cool this summer and still enjoy these Chili Stuffed Sweet Potatoes, you can simmer the chili in the crockpot and microwave or crockpot the sweet potatoes. Like I said, keeping a stash of chili in the freezer is awesome for quick nights. The chili itself also goes great in burritos.

    Oh man, I adore sweet potatoes…straight up or doctored up…My Mr. Reactionary…. like you, was only familiar with the vile canned variety topped with marshmallows and wasn’t a fan. Until I fed him a baked one topped with shredded BBQ’d pork (leftovers), avocado, and Greek yogurt…HE ATE THREE THAT NIGHT…lol…good stuff…and now I know what I’m rustling up for dinner!

    Have a good weekend!
