  • 1 large sweet potato (~12 oz)
  • 1 tbsp ghee
  • 10 oz ground turkey
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika
  • ¼ tsp oregano
  • ½ cup onion minced
  • ¾ cup red bell pepper diced
  • 2 cups kale shredded
  • 2 tbsp cilantro chopped
  • 2 tbsp green onions thinly sliced
  • 1 medium avocado sliced


  • Pierce the sweet potato with a fork. Add a little water to the bottom of instant pot, and the grate. Cook the sweet potato in the Instant Pot on high pressure for 15 minutes. If doing more than 1 potato, you will need to increase the time for cooking, try 25 minutes for 2-3 potatoes.
  • Manual release the pressure when done, remove from the Instant Pot and allow to cool slightly.
  • While the instant is going, preheat the oven to 400°F. Heat the ghee in a large pan over medium heat.
  • Add the ground turkey, onion, and bell pepper. Cook for 5-7 minutes, until the turkey is cooked through and the onions/peppers are softened.
  • While the turkey cooks, slice the sweet potato in half lengthwise (so they are like long boats), scoop out about ¾ of the inside, and dice.
  • SEASON with salt, pepper, cumin, garlic powder, smoked paprika, and oregano then add the kale and diced sweet potato. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until the kale has wilted.
  • STUFF the mixture into the sweet potato shells and bake for 12 minutes.
  • REMOVE from the oven, top each half with half a sliced avocado, and garnish with cilantro and green onions.
