Smashed Sweet Potato Guacamole Bites

So we’re apparently getting anywhere from 18-36 inches of snow today and tomorrow.

Even the low end of that forecast sucks.

18 inches pretty much guarantees power outages around here and even though we have a generator and a wood stove, neither of those things will bring me the internet when it goes out.

I mean, who cares about the lights, I’d rather have the ability to waste my entire day away on Facebook and Netflix.

But that’s all the shit talking I’m going to do about this storm because you know what it’s done?

These smashed sweet potato guacamole bites have crispy sides with soft centers. Topped with a crispy piece of salty bacon.

It’s gotten people to shut the hell up about deflated balls and the Super Bowl while they freak out about stocking up on eggs, milk and bread instead.

Hall-e-freakin’-lujah.

If you haven’t been around for any other Super Bowl season, please refer to this edamame dip for my thoughts on the sport of football. It’s pretty succinct.

The one and only good thing about the Super Bowl, is and always will be, the food.

A day full of eating buffalo, baconized everything and cheesy dips galore is really hard to pass up.

These smashed sweet potato guacamole bites have crispy sides with soft centers. They're the perfect game day bite.

These sweet potato guacamole bites are definitely on the healthier side of the Super Bowl food spectrum but that doesn’t mean they don’t have some serious game pop-ability.

Their crispy edges, soft middles, spicy guac centers and salty bacon top make them perfect for throwing back while you watch half-illiterate fat men run around a field and horribly lip-synced half-time shows.

Half illiterate fat men?? Seriously? That's a very ignorant, elitist thing to say about professional athletes. Or do you just have an issue with testosterone? When I'm looking for recipes I just want to read about the food, how to prepare it and some tips that might be helpful. That's it. I don't need to read about someone's feelings about team sports. You know what they say about opinions.....
