Paleo Chorizo & Sweet Potato

Depending on how many you need to feed and what you’re feeling like this dish can be eaten as a meal or a side. Personally, I find this dish to be fulfilling enough to just eat on its own, but it also goes great as a side dish to something like fried almond chicken.

The leftovers for this dish will keep well in the fridge so make sure you don’t throw them out. Just reheat over the stove, in an oven or if you’re ok with using them, a microwave.

There are a ton of different ways you’re able to alter this dish to be more suited to your taste buds. The easiest and probably the most obvious is the type of seasoning you use. For example, merely replacing the paprika with cajun spice or something similar is a great way to spice this dish up. You could even use a combination of two or more seasonings.

Recipe Tips

  • As I mentioned above, you can play around with seasonings a bit if you would like a different tasting dish. For example, a taco seasoning or even Cajun spice could change this dish.
  • Most chorizo sausages you find should be paleo friendly but if you’re in doubt then be sure to check with the butcher or the ingredient list if it’s in a packet.
  • You can always add more vegetables to this dish. For example, some red bell peppers would help add even more flavor and texture. Some baby spinach mixed in at the end will help finish the dish perfectly.
