I’ve got 9 of the Best Ever Paleo Crock Pot Sweet Potato Recipes all together right here right now in one place. Finding recipes can’t be easier. I love sweet potatoes because they are just a great base for a meal and they are a healthy carb. I really wanted more sweet potato recipes that I could make easily in the slow cooker.
I firmly think that a slow cooker was one of the best inventions ever created! In this post we have a variety of sweet potatoes dishes that are all Paleo and made in a slow cooker. They aren’t just soup and chili recipes. There are some casserole, pork loin and stew recipes too with sweet potatoes in them.
I love how sweet potatoes are sweet, but not too sweet. That may sound weird, but I love how you get a little sweetness, but it’s not a sugary sweetness. That is unless you put marshmallows and such on top of your sweet potato. I think of them like a squash, because they taste similar and they are also just about the healthiest way you can get carbs on the Paleo diet.
Did you also know that what most people think are sweet potatoes are actually yams? Sweet potatoes and kind of in between taste of a white potato and a yam. I ordered sweet potato fries at a restaurant once and got real sweet potatoes and was pleasantly surprised. I HATE white potatoes, but the sweet potato fries were SO good.
I hope you enjoy these Paleo Crock Pot Sweet Potato Recipes. Let me know what your favorite recipe is. Which one are you most excited to give a try? Do you have any good recipes you think should be on our list. You can send us your suggestions.

If you are in the market for a slow cooker, I recommend this basic one on Amazon. I've found that electronic ones or ones with fancy features aren't necessary.
But really, if you are in the market for a slow cooker, you really should consider getting an Instant Pot instead. Instant Pots have a slow cooker feature, but they also do a lot more - so they save you a lot of space, time and money in the long run.

The things that all kinds of chili have in common are chili powder and tomato base. You can basically add anything you want to that. That’s why this chili is sometimes called garbage soup.
