Sweet Potato Nachos

The seasoned sweet potatoes with the mellow cheese create a wonderful combination for a snack or healthier game-day appetizer!

Ingredients:

  • 3 medium sweet potatoes (about 2 pounds), makes about 6 cups of rounds
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp. paprika
  • 1/3 cup black beans, drained, rinsed
  • 1/3 cup reduced-fat shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/3 cup chopped tomato (1 plum tomato) OR 1/3 cup no salt added, canned diced tomatoes, drained and rinsed
  • 1/3 cup chopped avocado

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Cover the baking pans with foil and coat with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Peel and slice the sweet potatoes thinly (about quarter-inch rounds). In a bowl, toss the rounds with olive oil, chili powder, garlic powder and paprika. Spread evenly on prepared pan (might need two pans). Bake for 10 minutes and use a spatula to flip the sweet potato rounds. Bake for another 5-10 minutes or until crisp.
  3. Remove the pan from the oven and sprinkle beans and cheese over the sweet potatoes. Return to oven until cheese melts, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle with tomato and avocado. Serve.
