Baked Sweet Potato Nachos

There’s no better way to start the day than with a heaping pile of nachos for brunch. For nachos, these are pretty nutritious, minus the handful of cheese nestled in there.

I used a mandolin to thinly slice about 3/4 of a large sweet potato (I used a Garnet yam, who cares?). Too thick and the slices won’t crisp. Too thin and the slices will burn. I was skeptical about using the oven, but this recipe resulted in crispy chips without deep frying. I ended up with only a few burnt or flimsy chips.

Goot lort.​


I N G R E D I E N T S

  • 1 large sweet potato or yam, thinly sliced
  • olive oil
  • 1/3 cup shredded 4-cheese blend
  • 2 large avocados
  • 1 honey mango, diced
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 2 roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1 jalapeno, diced
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 5.3 oz. serving of nonfat, plain, Greek Yogurt
  • splash of apple cider vinegar
  • salt and pepper
  • cilantro and radishes for garnish

D I R E C T I O N S

  1. Toss the sweet potato sliced in a light drizzle of olive oil, salt, and pepper.
  2. Evenly spread out the slices in a single layer on a baking sheet (I filled up two and a half full sheet pans), and bake at 400°F for 20 minutes, flipping the slices halfway. After 20 minutes, I removed the crisp slices from the oven and continued cooking the flimsy ones on a wire rack for another 10 or 15 minutes.
  3. After the chips cool and crisp up, melt cheese on top of the chips in the oven.
  4. Guacamole: Mash together the avocado, 1 tomato, mango, 1/4 cup red onion, jalapeno, handful of chopped cilantro, juice from one lime, salt, and pepper.
  5. Pico de gallo: Combine the remaining 2 tomatoes with the remaining red onion, garlic, cilantro, lime juice, salt, and pepper.
  6. Cream: Mix together the yogurt with a splash of apple cider vinegar, a squeeze of lime juice, salt, and pepper.
