Sweet Potato Guacamole

I love sweet potatoes almost as much as I love avocados!  At the beginning of each week, I like to steam 3 or 4 of them, so I have them on hand for various recipes.

Most of my friends know that guacamole is my go to snack – especially after a tennis match in this Texas heat.  Try this twist on my old favorite.

Sweet Potato Guacamole

  • 1 sweet potato, steamed and peel removed (I used a yellow variety)
  • 2 avocados, peels and pits removed
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup chopped purple onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped baby tomatoes
  • juice from 1/2 a lime
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  1. In a medium size mixing bowl, mash together the sweet potato and avocados.
  2. Add the pecans, onion, tomatoes, lime juice, cumin, and garlic salt.
  3. Stir to combine.
  4. Serve with your favorite dipping chip – I used crinkled sweet potato chips.
