Guacamole with Sweet Potato and Cotija Cheese

Sweet Potato Guacamole

Holy sweet potato guacamole! This is the kind of recipe you don’t want to pass up. The sweet potato gives the recipe a touch of sweetness but not too much. Greek yogurt is always a staple in my guacamole to make it go a little longer.

Guacamole is one of those foods where once I start there is no stopping. It doesn’t matter how full I am…I just can’t stop! Pair this guacamole with my homemade Paprika Tortilla chips and munch away! If you’re one of those people who needs to go back and forth between guacamole and salsa in the same sitting – whip up some of my Peach Mango Salsa.
