For theĀ Guacamole

  • 2 ripe avocados (firm with a bit of give but not too soft)
  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 a large red or white onion, finely diced
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 small tomato, finely diced
  • 1/2 a jalapeno, de-seeded and minced (reduce or omit if you don’t want it spicy)
  • handful of fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • sea salt to taste

For the Stuffed Sweet Potato

  • 4 small or 2 medium/large sweet potatoes
  • 1 cup black beans

Optional Toppings


To Make the Guacamole

  1. Mash the avocado in a bowl and add the lime juice to prevent it from browning. Start with the juice from 1/2 a lime.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. If desired, add the other half of the lime to adjust the consistency.
  3. Season with sea salt.
  4. Store any leftovers in the fridge in an air-tight sealed container for 1-2 days (see note).

To Make the Baked Sweet Potato

  1. If your sweet potatoes are small, piece them with a fork and bake on a baking pan at 400 degrees until tender, approximately 40 minutes. If your sweet potatoes are large, cut them in half, rub a tiny bit of oil on them and bake them face down on a baking sheet at 400 degrees until tender, approximately 30-40 minutes.

To Assemble the Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

  1. Slice open the sweet potatoes (or if they were large and cut in half, just place on a plate or in a bowl) then load them up with guacamole and sprinkle with black beans and any other additional toppings
