Before you start

Preheat oven to 180°C | Line a baking tray with parchment paper | Fine grater or Microplane | Saucepan

Prepare the home-made chilli oil (optional)

  • Pour the 2 tablespoons oil into the pan and heat
  • Add the chillies and flakes and stir for 1 minute
  • Pour in the rest of the oil, turn the heat right down and warm through for about 5 minutes, being careful not to let the oil bubble
  • Take off the heat and cool to room temperature
  • Pour into the bottle or jar and screw on the lid, and use within 1 month

Prepare the sweet potatoes

  • Put the sweet potatoes on the baking tray and pierce them a few times with a fork
  • Rub the potatoes with the chilli oil and a generous pinch of salt
  • Put the tray in the oven and bake for 50–55 minutes, until the skin has begun to crisp up and the flesh is tender

When the potatoes are nearly cooked, make your guac

  • Halve and carefully stone the avocados by tapping the stone firmly with the heel of a knife so that it lodges in the stone, then twist and remove
  • Spoon the flesh into a mixing bowl and mash with a fork
  • Peel and finely chop the shallot
  • Peel and grate the garlic
  • Rip the stem from the chilli, cut it in half lengthways and remove the seeds, then finely chop
  • Finely chop the cherry tomatoes
  • Add the shallots, garlic, chilli and tomatoes to the bowl
  • Halve the lime and squeeze in the juice
  • Fold everything together to combine
  • Taste and season with salt
  • Pick the leaves from the coriander and discard the stems
  • Set aside a third of the leaves for garnish then finely chop the rest and add to the bowl
  • Drain and rinse the black beans and stir them into the guacamole
  • If the consistency is a little stiff, add a little olive oil to soften it

Finish and serve

  • Take the tray out of the oven and leave the potatoes to cool for 5 minutes
  • Carefully slice open the sweet potatoes and gently fluff the flesh with a fork
  • Spoon half the guacamole into each potato
  • Garnish with the reserved coriander leaves and serve immediately
