Sweet Potato Crisps with Pomegranate Guacamole

Let’s be real. Cinco de Mayo isn’t Cinco de Mayo without a big bowl of guacamole.

In this recipe, I take my favorite Pomegranate Guacamole and portion it out onto little sweet potato crisps. For a more authentic celebration, ditch the crisps and dive into this guacamole with traditional tortilla chips.
