Method

  1. First, cut the sweet potatoes into fries and place on a baking tray. Sprinkle over a pinch of salt and pepper and a teaspoon of coconut oil. Mix well and place in a preheated oven at 190°C for 30 minutes, or until golden, crispy and cooked through.
  2. While the fries are in the oven, in a large pot over a medium heat, add the coconut oil along with the chopped onion. Gently cook for 5 minutes until the onion is translucent. Once at this stage add the beef mince and break up with a wooden spoon into small pieces. Cook until lightly browned for 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Once browned and cooked through, add the chilli powder, cumin and smoked paprika. Stir together and cook for 2 minutes continuously stirring. Add the tin of chopped tomatoes, top the empty tin up half way with water and add to the pot, add the beef stock cube, stir all together then place a lid over and cook on a low to medium heat for 30 minutes.
  4. To serve, place the sweet potato fries on a plate, cover generously with the chilli and finish with lots of grated Low-Fat Protein Cheese. Dig in!
