Roasted Babypotato skins loaded with avocado black eye bean – Vegan

Babypotato finalAbout:

The baby potatoes are roasted until they’re browned and a little crunchy, then topped with the fresh bean-avocado filling.They were amazing. And you 100% have to serve them or bring them to your Super Bowl party. People will be singing your praises all year long.

These crispy, one-bite snacks—which are just a fancier take on chips and healthy filling—are perfect for guilt-free snacks.
