Sweet Potato Bites

This past Christmas, my mom & I whipped up these avocado sweet potato bites for the first time, & boy were they a hit! I could easily devour an entire platter, & the best part is that you can make them vegan or with meat. Plus, they're super easy to make!

Ingredients

  • 2 sweet potatoes - sliced

  • 2 cloves garlic - minced

  • 2 avocados - mashed

  • cilantro - chopped

  • Crunchsters Beyond Bacon Crunchy Mung Beans

  • Trader Joe's Chili Lime seasoning

  • paprika

  • red pepper flakes

  • garlic powder

  • pepper

  • salt

  • optional: caramelized onions*

The Process

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees

  • Wash your potatoes - I like to leave the skin on, but if you're not a fan of the skins then peel them right off

  • Next, cut your potatoes into slices - not too thin, about a quarter inch

  • Toss your sliced potatoes with olive oil, salt, pepper, & Trader Joe's Chili Lime seasoning

  • Place your potatoes on a baking sheet & set in the oven for 30-40 minutes, depending on how crispy you like your potatoes

  • While the potatoes are cooking, prepare the avocado topping: Mash together 2 ripe avocados, salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, lime, cilantro, garlic - save mixture in the fridge until potatoes are ready*

  • Once the 30 minutes is up, take your potatoes out of the oven, place them on a platter or tray & begin to top them with your avocado mixture

  • Once every potato is topped with avocado, top the avocado with your Crunchsters Beyond Bacon Crunchy Mung Beans (+ optional caramelized onions) or your cooked pork bacon bits


*Caramelize Onions: slice onions to caramelize, cook on high heat with salt, splash with water once they start to cook & slightly burn a little


**If you're topping your sweet potatoes with bacon instead of Beyond Bacon Mung Beans then start cooking your bacon while the sweet potatoes are in the oven as well, so it is ready when the sweet potatoes are done. I would use 4-6 pieces of bacon depending on how much you love bacon!
