California Burrito Bowl
If you are not familiar with a California burrito, it is a regular burrito that contains french fries rather than the rice. This over-the-top dish is deliciously sinful. By ditching the flour tortilla, you’ll be able to Paleo-ify the burrito into a healthy meal.
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 35 minutes
2 medium sweet potatoes
1 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon chili powder
½ tablespoon cumin
coconut oil cooking spray or avocado oil in an oil mister
1 pound chorizo turkey sausage
1 avocado, mashed
¼ teaspoon lime juice
½ white onion, diced
3 tomatoes, diced
2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
¼ cup pickled jalapeños
½ cup red taco sauce (optional)
1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Peel the sweet potatoes. Cut them into ¼-inch fries. Soak the fries in a large bowl of water for 1 hour. This will remove some of the starch. Drain them and pat dry with a paper towel. In a large bowl, toss the fries with the olive oil, chili powder, cumin, red pepper, arrowroot powder, and turmeric. Line two baking sheets with foil and spray with cooking spray of your choice. Spread the fries out in a single layer, making sure not to overcrowd them. Bake for 20 minutes, flip and cook an additional 10 minutes.
2. While the fries bake, cook the turkey chorizo in a large frying pan over medium-high heat for 7-10 minutes. Crumble the chorizo with a spatula as it cooks. Mash up the avocado and mix in the lime juice.
3. When the fries come out of the oven, transfer them to a plate. Top them with the chorizo, onion, tomato, cilantro, avocado, and jalapeños. If desired, drizzle red taco sauce on top.
