Cheesy, easy, and so delicious- this Chicken Green Chili Stuffed Sweet Potato is the ultimate low-carb comfort food dish!

Chicken Green Chili Stuffed Sweet Potatoes- yum!

Eating low carb and still indulging in delicious comfort foods can be kind of a pain. We try to add as many unprocessed foods and vegetables as we can into our main dishes (it totally counts against the cravings for chips/candy/cookies/fudge… right??) but it can get repetitive fast.

I love stuffed potatoes- and I love sweet potatoes- so I decided to change things up with one of my favorite everyday meals (fajita-like mexican chicken stir fry) with some spicy green chili, gooey cheese, and some delicious sweet potatoes!

This meal is easy and delicious- and a great companion to my Cheesy Chicken Green Chile Skillet. You can make up a big batch and serve it over rice or a salad one night, and over these potatoes the next for a totally different taste!

For me, eating healthier is something that has to be easy, and I try to increase our veggie intake whenever I can. This is an awesome way to step up your veggies for the day, and tastes incredibly rich and indulgent!
