Total Time 1hr 15min

Servings: 4


Ingredients:

4 Medium Sweet Potatoes

1 Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce , finely chopped

1 tsp Adobo Sauce

1 tsp Agave

Salt

Pomegranate-Pistachio Guacamole

1 ½ Avocados , diced, ripe

2 Tbsp Lemons , freshly squeezed

1/2 cup Pomegranate Seeds plus 2 Tbsp

1/4 cup Pistachios , roughly chopped

3 Tbsp Red Onions , minced

2 Tbsp Fresh Cilantro, chopped to taste

Freshly Ground Black Pepper


Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with foil and set aside.

Wash the Sweet Potatoes (4) and dry them well. Use a fork to carefully poke holes all over the sweet potatoes, about 2 fork pokes per side should do it, and place the sweet potatoes on the baking sheet.

Transfer the potatoes to the oven and bake for 60-70 minutes until they’re very tender.

While the potatoes are baking, prepare the guacamole. In a medium bowl, mash the Avocados (1 1/2) with a fork until almost smooth (a few chunks are okay).

Mix in the Lemons (2 Tbsp) , Pomegranate Seeds (1/2 cup) , Pistachios (1/4 cup) , Red Onions (3 Tbsp) , and Fresh Cilantro (2 Tbsp) .

Season with Salt (to taste) and Freshly Ground Black Pepper (to taste) . Press a piece of plastic wrap onto the surface of the guacamole to keep it from browning while you finish the potatoes.

Slice the top of each sweet potato to reveal the inside. Use a spoon to scoop out the insides of each sweet potato and transfer them to a medium bowl, leaving a 1/4-inch layer of potato inside the skins.

Mash the potatoes with a fork and then mix in the Adobo Sauce (1 tsp) , Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce (1) , and Honey (1 tsp) . Season with salt to taste.

Carefully spoon the mashed sweet potatoes back into their skins.

Top each sweet potato with plenty of pomegranate-pistachios guacamole, and shamelessly dig into your superfood sensation.
