Avocado Stuffed Sweet Potato is creamy and delicious with a flavor profile that tastes completely enchanting!
Soooooo, the story behind the creation of this recipe is completely all about me! I adore sweet potatoes and had a serious craving for them the other night so as they were happily baking away in the oven- I found myself snacking on sweet potato tortilla chips and guacamole.
That right there was my inspiration! Yep.
I figured if the flavors worked that well together cold then they’d be even more enchanting warm. I think you’ll agree that my Avocado Stuffed Sweet Potato brings the tastebuds a touch of the magical! (as long as you share the love of sweet potato and avocado too).
Avocado’s are in season right now and I’m seeing them on sale at most stores I’ve gone to over the past couple of weeks. When I’m purchasing avocados I prefer to buy an assortment in stages of ripeness. Go for the squeeze test as you’re picking them… a couple that give pretty well for use in the next day or two. Then grab a couple that are firmer to ripen at home for later use- once they begin to give slightly, place them in the fridge so it slows down the ripening and they hold even longer.
