Ingredients

3 cups diced sweet potatoes (about 3 med-large peeled sweet potatoes; or pre-cut sweet potatoes)
2-3 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 tsp ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups cups sweet corn (I used frozen that I heated until warm)
1 (15oz) can black beans, drained
1 1/2 cups diced bell peppers (I used green, yellow, red, and orange)
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped (plus more for garnish)
1 tsp seasoned salt (or to taste)
1 tbsp fresh lime juice
3-4 tbsp roasted red pepper dressing (or, you can use chipotle ranch, southwestern flavored dressing, etc.)

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spread sweet potatoes onto a non-stick foil lined large sheet pan.
2. Drizzle with olive oil, beginning with 2 Tbsp. If you think it needs more, add the extra tbsp.
3. Sprinkle with salt and 1/2 tsp of pepper, reserving the remaining 1/4 tsp of pepper. Stir the sweet potatoes around until they are all evenly coated.
4. Cook for 25 -30 minutes, until they are browned and fork tender (a little crisp on the outside and soft inside), stirring the sweet potatoes with a spatula every so often.
5. Mix roasted sweet potatoes, corn, black beans, bell peppers, cilantro, seasoned salt, remaining 1/4 tsp of black pepper, and lime juice and dressing together (begin with 3 tbsp, and add more as needed).
6. Once combined, serve immediately, or serve chilled (this salad tastes great warm, at room temperature, and cold).

MANGO GUACAMOLE

MANGO GUACAMOLE

This mango guacamole makes a fun appetizer for any party and comes together in just a few minutes! Serve it with some tortilla chips for a quick and easy appetizer or snack.

If I had to select one among my favorite things to eat, other than course, it’d need to be avocados. I invariably get many after we go grocery looking and add them to salads throughout the week, use them to create dip, and even incorporate them into my dinners. To mention i really like avocados would in all probability be sarcasm.Because I sometimes get many on the weekend, I’m invariably making an attempt to search out alternative ways to use them. I’ve invariably dear the mix of mangos and avocados, thus I patterned why not create a dip out of it? I need to say that I believe I found a replacement favorite thanks to use avocados with this recipe! The items of mango during this dip try absolutely with the creamy avocados.

This dip is ideal served with some hotcake chips and makes a good starter to bring on to parties for the summer.

Since I’m not a large fan of sliced onions in dip I used onion powder during this formula. However, you’ll be able to be happy to omit the onion powder and use some sliced onion if you prefer. I conjointly additional 1/2 a jalapeño and simply removed the seeds to create it a touch less spicy.The mango guacamole is optional, but gives it a little extra flavor!
