About 1 tbsp honey

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp onion powder

1 tsp chili powder

1/2 tsp cumin

3 medium or 2 large sweet potatoes

3 tbsp avocado oil or olive oil

1/2 tsp sea salt

black pepper – to taste

pinch of chili flakes (optional)

For Garnish:

pumpkin seeds

thinly sliced red onion

chili flakes





Prepare the oven and preheat to 218 degrees C or 425 degrees F.

Wash with water the sweet potatoes to remove any dirt.

Slice the potatoes into 1/2-inch-thick rounds. Place them into a large mixing bowl.

Add garlic powder, oil, chili powder, black pepper, sea salt, onion powder, and cumin over the potatoes. Toss until well coated.

Transfer the potatoes onto a sheet pan and arrange them in a single layer.

Place the sheet pan inside the preheated oven and roast the potatoes for 22 to 26 minutes or until fork-tender.

Remove the roasted potatoes from the oven and allow them to rest for a few minutes at room temperature.

Top each potato with a drizzle of honey and your Mexican garnishes.

Serve and enjoy!


Make sure to slice the potatoes into even cuts.

You leave the skin of the potatoes if they are organic. I prefer to peel the non-organic potatoes to get rid of the pesticides.
