Sloppy Joes with Sweet Potatoes

2 large sweet potatoes
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, finely diced
1/2 green bell pepper, finely diced
1 lb. ground beef
1-2 cups ketchup
2 tbsp spicy mustard
1 tbsp honey (raw, local)
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup water
Salt and pepper, to taste

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Poke the sweet potatoes with a fork and place onto a baking sheet. Bake for 50 minutes or until soft. Remove from the oven and let cool. Cut in half.
Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions with a pinch of salt and sauté for 4-5 minutes, until soft. Stir in the bell peppers and cook for another 2 minutes. Add the ground beef and cook until browned, stirring regularly.
Stir in the ketchup, mustard, honey, and vinegar. Add the water and bring to a low simmer, then cover and cook for 12-15 minutes until the liquid is mostly absorbed. Adjust salt and pepper to taste, and add more ketchup or mustard as necessary. Spoon over the sweet potato halves to serve.
