This Sweet Potato Nachos recipe is a game-changer! Who knew nachos could be so healthy and delicious at the same time?!
I love taking traditionally un-healthy recipes and giving them a healthy spin. I want the world to know that healthy eating isn’t synonymous with boring eating or tasteless eating.
A few simple swaps and nachos can be a healthy, nutritious option or a snack, game-day appetizer, or even dinner!
That’s exactly what I did with this Sweet Potato Nachos recipe. A few simple changes to traditional nachos and we’ve got a more nutrient-dense, but still super tasty tray of healthy nachos!
The most obvious change is switching out the deep fried tortilla chips for sweet potato chips. We make these at home and even though they’re baked, they are still crispy.
Making the sweet potato chips is the longest part of this process because you have to make them in batches to get them crispy. It’s worth it, though. After all your batches are baked, you can put them all on one tray and they look like this:
It’s REALLY HARD to not eat up all of these chips before you even turn them into your Sweet Potato Nachos recipe. When I was making these, Luke kept coming over and stealing chips! I told him I’d make him another batch of sweet potato chips soon.
After your sweet potato chips are ready, we load them up with ground turkey, beans, a little cheese, and allll the toppings your heart desires. I use my homemade taco seasoning to season the ground turkey and I highly recommend it!
The sweet potato chips maintain some, but not all of their crispiness after they are loaded with toppings. It definitely becomes a fork nachos situation. Messy nachos are the best nachos, don’t you agree?
I also have a recipe for Mini Bell Pepper Nachos that is vegan, if you want a meat-free and cheese-free version of healthy nachos, check it out! Need dairy free? Try this Cashew Cheese Sauce in place of the real cheese!Print
