Move over, potato skins. These Sweet Potato Touchdowns are a snap to make, requiring only a few simple ingredients. I originally saw these on EatingWell (genius!) and was totally inspired to make them. The avocado adds heart-healthy unsaturated fat and fiber, and the sweet potatoes are loaded with beta-carotene, which is converted by the body to vitamin A to help boost immunity and promote a healthy complexion. Don’t forget to (clean and then) eat the skin—lots of feel-good action lurking inside.

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 2 servings
  • • 1 sweet potato, roasted
  • • ¼ cup guacamole
  • • 3 tablespoons salsa
  • • 2 tablespoons light sour cream or non-fat plain Greek yogurt

Top each sweet potato half with 2 tablespoons guacamole, then 1½ tablespoons salsa. Place the sour cream or Greek yogurt in a plastic bag and cut a tiny hole in the corner. Use about 1 tablespoon per each sweet potato half to make the football-lace piping.

1 serving is ½ sweet potato
