  • 1 1/2 lbs Ground beef
  • 1 Large sweet potato, peeled and cut into cubes
  • 2 Bell Peppers, seeds removed and cut into 1" pieces I like to use red and yellow. Use any color you like. I highly recommend using different color peppers for added color and flavor.
  • 3 Cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp Himalayan salt
  • 2 tsp Fine ground black pepper
  • 3 tbsp Coconut aminos

  • Veggie prep. Peel and cube sweet potato. Peel and dice onion, peel and mince garlic. Clean and cube bell pepper. Garlic, onion and bell pepper can all be placed together in a bowl before cooking. Peel and thinly slice avocado.
  • Over med heat Cook sweet potato in a large skillet with 1 cup water. Cook with lid on until the sweet potato is slightly tender. Poke it with a fork or knife to check tenderness. approx. 5 minutes.
