The dip is easy to make because you’re using leftover sweet potatoes plus it’s good for you. I mean sweet potatoes of much needed vitamins. Pair them with a tasty chip like Good Health Sea Salt Eat Your Vegetable Chips or Snikiddy Hot & Spice Baked Fries and you’ve got a healthy snack.
Sweet potato dip is so good and a great alternative to salsa, sour cream calorie laden dips or hummus. It goes well with chips, veggies, breads or even crackers.

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.

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.
