I’m so excited to bring you this recipe for a few reasons:

1) Nachos are awesomely delicious

2) This is a cleaner version of nachos

3) They are uber pretty

4) They are so much easier to make than you realize

I seriously love nachos.  They are such a great way to incorporate crunch, lots of flavor, lots of veggies with a balance of protein, fats and carbs.  Unreal.

I decided to use sweet potatoes for the chips because it’s a cleaner carb option for my current training goals.  I’ve been doing pretty much everything I can with sweet potatoes including stuffing them with sloppy joe mix.  <<Yeah.  That will rock your world.

If you are following the 21 Day Fix or eating a Paleo diet, this could be a game changer for you!

I recently (finally) got two new kitchen tools so that I can make noodles and chips so I couldn’t wait to test them out!  It’s literally so easy.

Slice in about 1 minute.  I use a hand held mandoline slicer on the thinnest setting.  This is key!

Lay on a baking sheet (cover with tinfoil and spray with coconut oil beforehand.)  Season how you desire.

Bake at 275 for about 50 mins.  I prefer to flip mine about half way through.  You might also need a little more/less time depending on your oven.  I recommend checking a few times because I am paranoid and burn things often!

Once the chips are done just build your nachos!

Loaded Nachos with Sweet Potato Chips

Serves 2
Prep time 20 minutes
Cook time 1 hour
Total time 1 hour, 20 minutes
Dietary Gluten Free
Meal type Main Dish

Ingredients

  • 1 Medium sweet potato (thinly sliced)
  • 1lb grass fed ground beef
  • 1 red onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro (finely chopped)
  • 1 lime
  • 2 tablespoons fresh salsa
  • 2 tablespoons Queso cheese (crumbled)
  • seasonings, to taste

Directions

Preheat oven to 275. Wash the sweet potato then slice into rounds on the thinnest setting of your mandoline. Cover baking sheets with tinfoil and lightly coat with spray coconut oil.
Lay the sweet potato slices on the baking sheets in a single layer. Bake for 50 minutes, flipping over half way through. Check to make sure they are not burning.
While the chips are baking, cook your chicken, burger or meat substitute (beans, tempeh, etc.) I like to add whatever seasonings I have on hand. Homemade taco seasonings, lime juice, etc.
Once the chips are crispy, remove from the oven and spread on to a plate. Top the chips with your favorite nacho toppings! Olives, salsa, jalapenos, sour cream (Greek yogurt) cilantro, onion, cheese etc.

Some other options are to use chicken, black beans or Tempeh.  If you want sour cream, I would opt for plain Greek yogurt.  Want to kick it up a notch?  Add jalapeno!  Yum!

I also recommend that you store any unused “chips” in an airtight container just as you would with tortilla chips.  You can always toast them again the next day if they lost some crispiness.

My next project is to make salt and vinegar sweet potato chips.  I don’t know if you know this about me, but I LOVE vinegar.

Are you a vinegar lover?

What is your must have nacho topping?

Any new ways you have been eating sweet potatoes?
