Sweet Potato Nachos

Last week, I posted a picture of the Sweet Potato Nachos that I made for dinner one night. I had a huge response to it and wanted to share the super simple recipe with you all. I got a general recipe from Nadine and then turned it into my own.
Sweet Potato Nachos

Servings: 4


- 3 medium to large sweet potatoes
- 1 pound ground turkey or ground beef
- 1 taco seasoning packet (or make your own)
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 small to medium jalapeno
- 1 large tomato
- 1 large ripe avocado
- green onions
- olive oil
- salt and pepper


1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.

2. Peel and cut your sweet potatoes 1/8 inch rounds. Place your sweet potatoes on a cookie sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Toss to coat the sweet potatoes. You will have to make two or three batches of these to use all of the sweet potatoes. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until they start to brown and crisp. Do not overcook. Turn and bake for another 10 to 12 minutes.

3. When you are on your second batch, brown your ground turkey or ground beef. Cook through and drain your meat. Add in your taco seasoning with 3/4 cup of water. Stir and cook until most of the moisture is gone.

4. Once your potatoes are done, add all of baked sweet potatoes to a cookie sheet (I used the same one after letting it cool down a bit). Your potatoes can and should overlap. Add your meat mixture and your cheese. If you don't have enough cheese, add more than indicated above or to how much you like. Bake at 350 degrees for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

5. Plate your portion of the nachos and add on your tomatoes, avocado, green onions, jalapenos, hot sauce and any other taco/nacho items you love.

6. Enjoy!
