Make the Sweet Potato Wedges

2. Cut each sweet potato in half lengthwise. Then each half, in half lengthwise and then each ¼ in half lengthwise. In the end, you should have 8 long wedges.

3. Toss the wedges in the olive oil and salt. Then sprinkle the cayenne and smoky paprika over evenly and toss again.

4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the sweet potato wedges in a single layer. Bake for 30-40 minutes, flipping halfway through. .

Make the Guacamole

1.Place the avocado and lime juice in a large mixing bowl and toss to combine well.

2.Add the salt and cayenne and mash using a potato masher. I like my guacamole chunky, so I leave some chunks for texture.

3.Add the onions, tomatoes, garlic, cilantro and jalapeno and stir to combine. Serve.
