Ive never thought of using sweet potatoes as a dip, but i can definitely see that it would make for a delicious dip. I would love to dry dipping some sort of bread in it.

Thanks for sharing. This is an interesting way to use sweet potatoes. Is it sweet or savory?
My favorite dip to make is hummus, but I do like yours here.

I don't make a ton of dip for family gatherings. My MIL will make cheese dip with rotel on occasion. I will have to try the sweet potato dip. It is healthy too.

We planted a garden.  It was kinda by chance.  I bought these seeds and this starter compost.  Put them near the kitchen and after about a week or so, I started noticing gnats in my kitchen.  I figured it was some of the fresh fruit gone bad.  Tossed the fruit. Wiped everything down.  Gnats were gone.  A few days later... the gnats returned.  FINALLY figured out it that I had this dirt near the kitchen and remembered "Oh, you were going to start gardening."   Seeds planted.  Watered.  Now we wait.  It'll be a few weeks but I am so looking forward to cutting fresh spinach and
