Why choose between guacamole and salsa when you could have both? Roasted sweet potatoes with a light coating of spices work as the base for a pile of guacamole and salsa with just a little bacon on top – no tortilla chips necessary. They taste great, they’re full of nutritional standouts like avocado and sweet potatoes, and they add a cheerful burst of color to any table.
