Chicken, Sweet Potato, Salsa Awesomeness


This recipe was inspired by a friend of mine.


  • Sweet Potato
  • Maple Syrup
  • Shredded Chicken
  • Salsa
  • Shredded Cheese
  • Avocado



  • Roast sweet potato (400 F for 60 minutes)
  • Mash (and mix with a smidge of maple syrup if you like)
  • Top with shredded chicken
  • Top with salsa
  • Top with shredded cheese
  • Put under broiler until cheese is nicely browned.



  • The versatility with this one is fantastic
  • I have used pulled pork in place of the chicken
  • For a vegetarian option use corn and black beans instead of meat
  • You could also top the sweet potato with scrambled eggs
  • My favorite salsa is the Dessert Pepper brand Corn Black Bean and Red Pepper salsa
  • I have also cooked the sweet potato in the microwave when I’m short on time, though I generally will roast extra and keep it in the fridge
  • I always eat this with avocado
  • I like to put mine into a 6 oz ramekin
