Sweet potatoes is always something I tend to gravitate to for some reason. I just love them.
This recipe has moved to one of my top favorites for Paleo recipes. I found this recipe a while ago when I was trying out the whole Paleo way and after taking one bite I was so excited to not only keep on eating it but to also share with all you. It’s my new food crush.

2 tablespoon coconut oil, divided
1 apple, peeled cored and diced
2 small to medium sweet potatoes, peeled and diced (or one large)
2 Mild Italian chicken sausages, removed from casing
2 to 3 large cups of baby spinach
1/3 cup sweet yellow onion, diced
1 1/2 Jalapenos diced
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
salt and pepper to taste
Step One: In a large nonstick skillet heat 1 tablespoon coconut oil over medium-high heat. Once heated, add diced sweet potatoes, jalapenos, and apples. Add a pinch or two of sea salt and cinnamon to the pan. Cook sweet potatoes and apples until cooked and softened. I prefer my sweet potatoes to be slightly browned.Step Two: While the sweet potatoes are cooking, heat a large skillet with 1 tablespoon coconut oil over medium heat. Add to skillet, the chicken sausage and onion making sure to break the sausage up in small pieces while it cooks.
Step Three: Once the chicken is no longer pink in color and completely cooked, add spinach to the skillet. Don’t worry the spinach will wilt down when cooked. The spinach should wilt down within 1 to 2 minutes. Once spinach is cooked add the sweet potato apple mixture to pan and stir to combine all.
I made my own little twist to it by adding some jalapenos because in this house... a meal is not complete without a jalapeno. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!!
