Bacon Sausage Serrano Skillet

Don’t you love a delicious and healthy skillet meal? Easy clean-up is something I try to help everyone with as I share Paleo and Paleo-ish meals. Hey, we are all busy and the better we eat, the more we can accomplish.

Seranno peppers are filled with capsaicin and trigger a flood of endorphins which are natural pain-killers. They also are extremely high in vitamin C. Pick up a couple and try them out in this amazing skillet concoction.

I boiled 2 sweet potatoes in a pan in water until tender when stuck with a fork.

I diced 1 small white onion and 2 serrano peppers and cooked them until tender in a small skillet along with 1 TBSP coconut oil.

While that was cooking I opened a 1 lb package of uncured bacon. I cut it into one-inch pieces with my kitchen scissors and dropped them into a large skillet. I added 1 lb of sausage and cooked that all together until browned.

Now, all I had to do was put this skillet meal all together. 

When the sweet potatoes were soft, I poured off the hot water and covered them with cold water so they would cool enough for me to peel and then cut into chunks.  

I drained a little of the bacon/sausage grease out of the large skillet. I added the sweet potatoes and the pepper/onion mixture to the large skillet.
I added:

1 tsp smoked sea salt
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
freshly ground pepper, to taste
