Southwest Skillet

Property of

Skillets are a fantastic breakfast option, allowing you to combine a ton of nutritional foods into one dish. Unfortunately, most breakfast skillets are not Paleo, mainly because they’re loaded with regular potatoes and cheese. I’ll show you how to make a filling and nutritious skillet that follows your Paleo lifestyle.


3 tbsp avocado oil
1 yellow onion, diced
2 medium sweet potatoes, cubed, boiled & chilled
2 tomatoes, diced
1 clove garlic, diced
1 pack of bacon, cooked & chopped
8 ounces green chile (You can usually find a naturally made, green chile sauce in your grocery store. Just make sure to read your labels!)


Pre-heat a skilled(or sauté pan) to medium heat.
Add avocado oil, onions, salt & pepper(to taste, roughly 1 tsp each); sauté onions until they start to brown.
Add sweet potatoes, tomatoes, garlic & green chile; heat until the mixture starts to bubble.
Serve hot!

1. The night before you make this cube and boil your sweet potatoes; drain and place into the fridge when done. Chilling your sweet potatoes will ensure that they don’t get mushy when you cook them.
2. If you’re following more of a primal diet you can top with grass-fed cheese.

This skillet takes a little extra work but it’s delicious and well worth the time. Also, this makes enough for a family of five, so if you’re only feeding yourself you’ll have breakfast for most of the week.
