  3. Cut your sweet potato into equal pieces. About 1.5 inches.
  4. In a bowl or on the same baking sheet, add all of the spices & mix, making sure that the sweet potato pieces are covered well.
  5. Bake for about 35 minutes, or until tender and browned. Times may vary by your oven.

This is my go to recipe for gaucamole. I'm not a fan out super smooth or mashed gaucamole, but if that's what you prefer, mash away! I do add ground cumin because that's the first way I learned to make it, years ago. Leave out what you want but try it, I'm sure you'll love it!
