Sweet Potato Skins with Guacamole
“Top crispy sweet potato skins with guacamole for a healthy take on classic potato skins in this easy crowd-pleasing recipe.”
4 small sweet potatoes
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
⅛ teaspoon kosher salt
½ cup shredded Cheddar cheese
Guacamole & Toppings
1 ripe avocado
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 clove garlic, minced
⅛ teaspoon salt
¼ cup chopped tomato
2 tablespoons minced red onion
Chopped cilantro for garnish
1Preheat oven to 400°F.
2Tightly wrap sweet potatoes in foil and place on a baking sheet. Roast until very tender, 50 minutes to 1 hour. Carefully unwrap and set aside to cool.
3Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
4Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise and scoop out the flesh, leaving a ¼-inch border (save the scooped-out flesh for another use). Place the sweet potato halves skin-side up on the prepared baking sheet. Brush with oil and sprinkle with kosher salt. Bake until browned and crisp, 20 to 30 minutes.
5Cut each skin in half widthwise and return to the baking sheet, skin-side down. Sprinkle each with 1 tablespoon Cheddar. Return to the oven and bake until the cheese is melted, 8 to 10 minutes.
6Meanwhile, make the guacamole: Mash avocado in a medium bowl. Stir in lime juice, garlic and salt.
7Top each sweet potato skin with guacamole, tomato, onion and cilantro, if desired.
