For the Guacamole:

For the Nachos:

  1. Make the salsa: Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl.
  2. Make guacamole: Mash avocados, then gently fold in 1/2 of the salsa. Add extra salt and lime if needed.
  3. Nacho time: Slice sweet potatoes into 1/4 inch thick rounds and place evenly on a baking sheet. Brush with coconut oil, and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and chili powder. Bake at 350°F for 30-40 minutes or until just soft and browning.
  4. Heat coconut oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Cut corn off cob. Dice persimmon into small cubes. Add to skillet and let sit until kernels start to char. Occasionally stir to prevent from sticking and burning. Reduce heat and add beans and cumin, stirring to combine and warm beans. Season with salt, if needed.
  5. Pile sweet potatoes on a plate. Top with persimmon mixture, shaved radish, and shredded lettuce.
  6. Serve with salsa and guacamole.
