DIRECTIONS
Heat oven to 425°F. In a small bowl, stir together 3/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon chipotle chili powder and 1/4 teaspoon pepper, set aside. Prick sweet potatoes on all sides with fork; brush with 2 teaspoons melted pork fat and sprinkle all sides with chipotle chili mixture. Place on 15x10x1-inch pan. Bake 40 to 50 minutes or until potatoes are tender when pierced in center with fork. Cool about 10 minutes or until easy to handle.

Meanwhile, in 10-inch nonstick skillet, heat 2 teaspoons pork fat over medium-low heat. Add onion and cook 15 to 18 minutes or until onions are soft and beginning to caramelize. Add kale, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon chili powder and pinch pepper. Cook 4 to 6 minutes, stirring frequently or until kale is wilted.

Split potatoes open; divide kale and onion mixture and bacon among potatoes; top with crushed pork rinds and lime wedge.
