  • Preheat oven to 425' and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Wash the sweet potatoes and prick with a fork 3 times (in different spots) brush the outside with avocado oil and sprinkle with salt
    Bake for 40-50 minutes or until just fork tender
    Remove from oven and let cool, then split open with a knife, sprinkle with a little salt and pepper and stuff with sloppy joe mix (when it's done)

  • Turn Instant Pot to saute mode and add in the oil. Once it is hot, add in the ground beef. Saute until mostly cooked through and add in the onions, peppers, and garlic. Saute another 2 minutes
    Then add in the remaining ingredients. Stir to combine and turn to high pressure and set time for 10 minutes
    When timer goes off, do a quick release of the steam. Let mixture cool for 5 minutes and stuff into the baked sweet potatoes


I used 4 large sweet potatoes to serve six because one half is a good portion, especially for kiddos. 
If prepping ahead of time, store the potatoes and mixture separately.
