I put this as together another option for adding this tremendous vegetable to your diet.



Prep time: 15

Cook time: 30

Total time: 45 MINUTES


  • 5 or 6 – thinly slice  medium purple sweet potatoes (I use a slicer for best results)
  • 1 pound grass-fed ground bison
  • 1/2 finely chopped medium onion
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups (appx. 1/2 jar) organic sugar-free salsa
  • salt and pepper  to taste
  • Olive oil to drizzle over potatoes
  • 1 tomato-chopped
  • 1/4 cup organic sour cream
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups shredded romaine lettuce or spinach (or both)
  • sliced olives
  • black beans
  • sweet corn

Cooking Directions:

  1. Wash and thinly slice potatoes. Place potatoes on a parchment covered baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, until coated. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake at 425 degrees for 30 to 45 minutes, or until desired crispness.
  2. While potatoes are baking, brown ground bison in large fry pan. Drain. Add salsa and onion. Bring to boil, then simmer until cooked through, onions are done and sauce is desired thickness. If it is too thick, add some water.
  3. To assemble: place baked chips on plate. Top meat, cheese, lettuce and other toppings. ENJOY

Here’s the finished product.

About Tamara Hoerner (1268 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.
