1 tbsp coconut oil

1/4 cup sweet onion, diced

1 small jalapeño, minced

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 cup sweet potato, grated

1 pound extra lean ground beef

1 tbsp chili powder

1/2 tsp ground cumin

1/2 tsp paprika

1/2 cup salsa

6 eggs

8 Egg whites

Sea Salt & Pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 350F

In a large pan, sauté the onions and jalapeño in the coconut oil over medium heat until the onions are tender.

Mix in the ground beef and cook just until it starts to brown and add the sweet potato and garlic. Cook until the beef is completely browned and the sweet potato is soft. Add the chili powder, cumin, paprika and salsa. Stir and cook until heated through.

Transfer the meat mixture to a pre-greased 11×7 glass baking dish and spread the meat mixture evenly over the bottom of the pan.

In a large bowl, beat together the 12 eggs with salt/pepper and pour over the meat mixture in the baking dish. Cover tightly with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove the tin foil and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes or until the eggs are set in the middle.
