#FlavorfulFriday: Sweet Potato Nachos Recipe

#FlavorfulFriday Sweet Potato Nachos

Happy 1st day of Spring! We are getting some snow here today in PA so it really doesn’t feel like Spring. Winter is not ready to let go yet, but I know I’m so ready for Spring and Summer! I’m not a big fan of cold weather to begin with, so when Mother Nature keeps it around longer than necessary I get a little grumpy. I keep telling myself that it will be here before I know it, but I’m a bit impatient.

So while I’m waiting for the cold to go away and the warmth and sunshine to arrive I will share this yummy recipe I came up with the other night. I’m not a great cook and I always need to follow recipes when I do cook, especially when I’m trying something new. BUT every once in a great while I come up with my own recipe that needs no recipe to follow! (I pat myself on the back when it tastes good too! LOL)

So, here’s the recipe:

  • Sweet Potatoes – Sliced like potato chips. I have a mandolin slicer that got them nice and thin, but you could use a knife too.
  • Put the sliced sweet potatoes in a plastic bag with olive oil (or coconut oil) and salt and shake it up until all coated.
  • Lay flat on baking sheet or stoneware (I love using my stoneware)
  • Bake at 375 for 30-40 minutes (until they get crispy…you might need to broil them a bit to get them crispy but watch they don’t burn) This is the tricky part…getting them crispy…Mine weren’t really crispy like I wanted.
  • While the sweet potatoes are baking…brown your ground beef (I use organic lean ground beef), drain and add taco seasoning to the beef. (I used a pre-mixed organic taco seasoning packet, but if you have your own taco seasoning go right ahead and use it)
  • When the sweet potatoes are done, layer them on a plate, top with your taco meat.
  • This is where it gets fun: Toppings! I added organic black beans, organic corn, fresh diced tomatoes, diced avocado and Sriracha. So yummy!

You could use whatever your favorite “nacho” toppings are; sour cream, guacamole, cheese, bacon, etc…

Let me know what you think of these and what toppings you decided to use!
