  • 22 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes, scrubbed clean but NOT peeled, sliced 1/4″ thick
  • 12 Tbsp. olive oil, plus extra for greasing pans
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • fresh ground black pepper


  • 3 medium avocados
  • 1/4 cup cooked sweet corn
  • 1/4 cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 medium tomato, seeded and chopped
  • 2 large jalapeno peppers, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1/2 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 3 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
  • 4 bacon strips, cooked, cooled, and crumbled or finely chopped
  • salt and fresh ground black pepper



  1. Place the oven rack in the lower third of the oven and preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Line two rimmed baking sheets with aluminum foil, drizzle lightly with olive oil, and distribute evenly using a pastry brush.
  3. Arrange the potato slices in a single layer on the oiled baking sheets, then brush tops with 1-2 Tablespoons of olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and fresh ground black pepper, to taste.
  4. Bake 15 -18 minutes. Potatoes will be soft, wrinkly, and golden brown on the bottom. Remove from the oven and allow to cool just slightly.


  1. Cut each avocado in half lengthwise. Remove the pit from the avocado and discard. Remove the avocado from the skin, and place the avocado flesh in a bowl. Mash with a fork, leaving some chunks.
