Why is it that when it gets hot out, I'm in the mood for hot spicy foods? Am I the only one like this? Well whether I am or not, I've got a great recipe for a hot and spicy meal. If you're not up for this in the summer, then save this one until the cooler weather hits.
- ½ pound ground beef or ground turkey
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- ½ teaspoon cumin
- ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
- ⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper
- ¼ teaspoon dried oregano
- ¼ teaspoon sea salt
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- ¼ cup water
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1 medium sweet potato, diced small (about 1 ¼-1 ½ cups)
- ½ cup diced red onions
- ½ cup diced red pepper
- ½ cup mushrooms, chopped
- 2 cups spinach, chopped
- Fresh Cilantro, Avocado, Green Onions, Salsa (optional)
Place a sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add beef, seasonings and water to the pan. Cooked until beef is browned.
Remove beef from pan and place on paper towel lined plate.
To the same pan, add ½ tablespoon of coconut oil and heat over medium-high until it starts to shimmer.
Add sweet potatoes, dash with salt and pepper, and sauté for about 10-12 minutes or until cooked through and slightly browned.
Add remaining ½ tablespoon of oil, onions, red pepper, mushroom and spinach and sauté for about 3-4 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Garnish with fresh cilantro, avocado green onions or salsa.
Enjoy good food,
P.S. I haven't tried this yet but sprinkling the top of this dish with crumbled bacon sounds sensational. Let me know what you think after you try it.
