If you’ve never made sweet potato rounds, you’ll love them! I first posted my Roasted Sweet Potato Rounds with Herbed Ricotta and Walnuts a number of years ago and they were a huge hit!

Employing the same concept as a chips and guacamole / finger food type of situation, these guacamole sweet potato rounds with crispy bacon are mouth-watering bites of bliss! 

They are perfect for whipping up as an appetizer to serve to guests, as a snack for your family, and/or as dinner…for yourself. What happens between you and the sweet potato round stays between you and the sweet potato round. No one’s judging 😉

Let’s make them!

How to Make Guacamole Sweet Potato Rounds:

Step 1: Slice a sweet potato into rounds, coat them with oil and sea salt and bake them on a baking sheet.

Step 2: Whip up your favorite batch of homemade guacamole. Get creative here with your own guacamole recipe, or follow my instructions for guac in the recipe card below!

Step 3: Cook Bacon to crispy perfection!

Step 4: Assemble this appetizer by dolloping guacamole on top of the roasted sweet potato rounds and sprinkling with onion, chopped bacon and cheese.

Step 5: Share and devour!

Roasted Sweet Potato Rounds with Guacamole and Bacon

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Total Time: 55 minutes
Author: Julia


  • 1 inch large sweet potato chopped into ½- rounds
  • 2 slices thick-cut bacon cooked
  • 1 large avocado peeled
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 jalapeno seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 3 tablespoons red onion finely chopped
  • 1/8 teaspoon to ¼ fine sea salt to taste

For Serving:

  • Cotija Cheese
  • Green onion chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Wash and dry the sweet potato, and slice it into 1/2-inch thick rounds. Lightly coat both sides of the sweet potato slices with grapeseed or olive oil, sprinkle with salt, and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes, flip, then bake for another 10 to 15 minutes, or until rounds are cooked through and crispy on the edges. Place sweet potato rounds on a serving platter and allow them to cool.
  2. Cook the bacon over medium heat, flipping occasionally, until crispy, about 5 minutes. Transfer bacon to a cutting board and chop into pieces once cool enough to handle.
  3. Add all ingredients for the guacamole to a bowl and mash with a fork until it reaches desired consistency. I like leaving mine slightly chunky.
  4. Top sweet potato rounds with guacamole, green onion, crispy bacon, and grated cotija cheese. Enjoy deez bites of heaven!

    I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE YOU!! (On April 18th, btw). And, your post made me cry, too. At least by the end of the today I’ll have clean tear ducts. Maybe I’ll get all of the tears out of the way so that I don’t cry on their wedding day. Nah. Won’t happen. BUT, if we stuff our faces with these while getting our hair done, that will help, right? I think I need to enlist your help with snacks. We’ll need snacks. And wine. And things like that. I love you!! See you soon!! xoxo

    Ahh this is AWESOME! Always bourbon, yes. I kind of hope the toasts at our wedding are as good as this letter you wrote, because duh booze and I love that you talked about squeezing someone until their eyes pop out (I do that all the time and people look at me like WTF lady?!).

  6. Sarah @ Making Thyme for Health

    Awwwww, this was so sweet! You are the best bridesmaid ever! I’m sure Steph is going to be teary eyed and drooling all at the same time when she sees it. And I hope she shares her wedding pics with us too so I can see how purdy you both look!!
