Game Day Chili-Stuffed Sweet Potato Recipe

by | Mar 26, 2015 | EZ Guy Recipes

Sit back, relax and chill out with this spin on a game day classic feast. Oven-hot and hearty, with just a few simple ingredients, makes this recipe easy to make and easy on your wallet.

 

This is also a great way to switch up your bowl of chili. The savoury-sweet flavour of chili and sweet potato is plain lip-smacking, stick to your bones good.

 

We suggest ground turkey as a lean, high quality protein, and sweet potato not just for flavour, but to refuel after training because the protein-carb combination of the two packs a mean muscle-building punch! 

 

Prep Time: 20 mins                        Cook Time: 40-50 mins                        Serves: 4

 

What you need

  • 4 individual-sized sweet potatoes
  • 1lbs ground turkey
  • 1 ½ tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 small can (389mL) low sodium black beans
  • 1/3 cup green onions
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp cumin powder

 

Steps

  1. Place sweet potatoes on a baking sheet, and bake at 400F for 40-50 mins.
  1. Chop tomatoes into dice-sized pieces, and chop green onions. Drain beans with a strainer and rinse with cold water.
  1. Add cooking oil and ground meat to a pan on medium-heat. Break meat apart in the pan with a spatula and add seasonings.
  1. Once turkey is almost cooked, add the tomatoes, green onions and black beans. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook another 5-8 mins.
  1. To check if sweet potatoes are done, remove from the oven and if it’s easy to stab through the middle with a knife, you’re ready to eat. Slice each in half lengthwise and scoop out a bit from the top to make a hole for the chili.  
  1. Top each half of sweet potato with chili and enjoy!
