For the sweet potato chips:

For the meat:
1 medium yellow onion, finely diced

Watch how the recipe is made.

Instructions:
1. To make the sweet potato chips, preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Peel the sweet potatoes and slice thinly. In a large bowl, toss them with coconut oil and salt. Place the chips in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes, then flip the chips over and bake for another 10-12 minutes. For the last ten minutes, watch the chips closely for extra browning.
2. While the potato chips are baking, start preparing the beef. Melt the coconut oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and chili to the pan and sauté for 3-4 minutes until softened. Add the ground beef and cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring regularly. Add garlic, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, salt, and paprika; stir well to combine. Bring the mixture to a simmer and then turn the heat down to medium-low. Cook, covered, for 20-25 minutes, stirring regularly.
3. Stir the chopped tomatoes, freshly squeezed lime juice, and cilantro into the beef mixture. Adjust salt and pepper to taste. For extra lime zest, pull some lime pieces and mix in. Remove from heat.
