Sweet Potato Nachos

Alright guys, this doesn’t happen often! I won in the kitchen tonight, and am quite proud of myself!

You know I’m a big fan of easy, tasty recipes, with few ingredients, and this one fits the bill perfectly! Not to mention, it is fairly healthy.

How to Make Sweet Potato Nachos

Ingredients:
-sweet potato(es)
-avocado
-sour cream
-cilantro
-jalapeño
-black beans
-tomato
-mozzarella cheese (or queso cheese…if that’s all you have!)

I made this meal just for me, so if you’re making it for 2+ people, I’d use at least 2-3 large sweet potatoes.

We used a food processor to finely slice the sweet potato, then diced up the other vegetables.

cooking with sweet potatoes

The sweet potatoes were tossed lightly in olive oil and sea salt, then baked on a cookie sheet at 400, for 25 minutes. After about 15 minutes, I flipped them over.

As soon as they came out of the oven, I sprinkled on a little bit of cheese, then added the black beans (drained), tomatoes, avocado, jalapeño, cilantro, and sour cream.

    I absolutely love sweet potatoes, and actually had one with my breakfast this morning! I can eat them at anytime of day. 🙂 I have seen recipes for sweet potato nachos, but I have never made them. I might just need to give it a try!

    Those look so tasty! I love nachos. I never thought about using sweet potatos. That is a great healthy alternative. I have not made any fun recipes lately but know one now I need to try:).

      They do seem much healthier than using regular chips 🙂 Makes me feel better about eating a much larger serving!

    I love sweet potatoes! I can’t wait to give this recipe a go, because they’re especially tasty with a little mexican flair. One of our easy, go-to meals are baked sweet potatoes with ‘taco’ beef and sauteed peppers and onions. So good!

    Yes Im obsessed with sweet potatoes! I usually just cut them up like you did for this recipe and bake them. It’d be super easy to add all this others tuff on top for some yummy nachos 😀

    Woman, now let’s talk about these nachos! Seriously, I’ll trade you my pancakes for your nachos any day. Also, this is my first time discovering the awesomeness of your blog and I lurve it.

    Yes, lurve. I can’t wait to read/creep some more 😉
