  • Dice green peppers and yellow onions into ½-inch pieces and mix with cooked potatoes.
  • Make an avocado sauce by puréeing avocado, lime juice, salt, and pepper to taste, adding water until desired consistency.
  • Pan fry cooked Idaho potatoes, peppers, and onions until golden brown. Drain on paper towel. Split cooked sweet potato lengthwise and place on a plate.
  • Place warm cauliflower mixture on top of sweet potato and add pan-fried potatoes, peppers, and onions. Put a scoop of your favorite salsa on top and drizzle with avocado sauce. Add lettuce and top with your favorite pico de gallo.
