 Sweet Potato Hash Recipe with Creamy California Avocado Sauce

There is no doubt that avocados fit snugly into many breakfast dishes. This sweet potato hash pops with color and flavor, thanks to a creamy avocado sauce. For the sauce, the California Avocados are tossed in the blender with some Greek yogurt, lime juice, garlic, salt and pepper. The result is a spreadable sauce that begs you to eat it with a spoon. So it’s a good thing that there’s a little leftover in this recipe!

  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet (preferably cast-iron) set over medium-high heat.
  3. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute, stirring frequently.
  4. Stir in the cooked sweet and Russet potatoes and salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes start to brown, 8 to 10 minutes.
  5. Stir in the black beans, bacon and cilantro.
  6. Divide between 8 plates and top each portion with 1 tablespoon of the Creamy California Avocado Sauce.

* Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
