Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  1. Use a fork to poke some holes in your sweet potatoes. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes or until sweet potatoes are soft when you poke them. (Time will range depending on how fat they are. I used thin ones)
  2. While your sweet potatoes are baking, pull out a large skillet, place over medium heat and add your chorizo to it. Use a wooden spoon to break up your chorizo while it cooks.
  3. When chorizo is halfway done cooking, add your onions to sweat it out.
  4. When your chorizo is cooked completely through, put your chorizo mixture on a plate with a paper towel to soak up some of the excess fat and to cool.
  5. Now pull out your handy dandy food processor. Use a spoon to scoop out the inside of your two avocados and place in the food processor. Mix until you get a smooth paste.
  6. Add your lime, lemon, cumin and a bit of salt. Pulse until mixed thoroughly.
  7. Place your chorizo and ¾ of your avocado mixtures in a large bowl to incorporate. Leave the other ¼ of avocado mixture for toppings.
  8. When your sweet potatoes are done cooking, let cool, cut in half, scoop out insides (leaving about ½-1 inch of sweet potato still inside) of sweet potato, and use a pastry brush to brush on coconut oil on the inside and all around the sweet potato.
  9. Place back on cooking sheet and in the oven for another 10-15 minutes or until crispy.
  10. Once potatoes are crispy, add your avocado and chorizo mixture into your sweet potato, top off with a little sprinkle of almond flour, and place back in the oven for around 5 minutes.
  11. Top off your your leftover avocado mixture. Kinda like a scoop of sour cream on top. Diggin it.
  12. Finally consume!
  13. Serves 3-6
