Looking for a healthier take on nachos? My Fully Loaded Sweet Potato Nachos have you covered! They’re vegan, paleo and gluten-free (you can use cheese if you want to but it’s totally optional). Whether it’s game night or you’re trying to get a handle on those junk food cravings, these nachos are a great fit. I make these for dinner when I’m wanting something filling but healthy and gets me my salt fix. Then there’s enough leftovers for the rest of the family or for lunches (you’ll be the envy of all your coworkers)!
Have you ever made sweet potato chips? Don’t worry, super easy as long as you:
- Create even slices
That’s the absolute key. If your sweet potato slices are different thicknesses, your cooking time will be all over the place. The result? Some burnt chips and some mushy chips. Not what you or I had in mind, is it?
Unless your knife skills are chef-worthy I’d suggest you get a mandoline slicer or use a slicer attachment on your food processor (my preferred method). This guarantees even slices every time.
I also leave the peel on my sweet potatoes because fiber!!! Not only will that help you feel full for longer (goodbye hangry outbursts), but there’s plenty of nutrients in that skin. It also helps your chips hold together better and crisp up more around the edges.
If you don’t have the time/energy/desire to make your own sweet potato chips, I get it. Don’t stress and just grab some prepared sweet potato chips or other fiber-rich healthyish chips and you can cut to the chase and add on those toppings!
Another optional step: topping these sweet potato nachos with my Avocado Crema (highly recommended). Sure, you could use store-bought guacamole or smash up some quick guac too.
I created and shared this recipe for a live TV segment live on WGN-TV in Chicago on Healthy Junk Food Alternatives You Can Make at Home.
(If you have a sweet tooth/chocoholic tendency like I do, I also shared my super easy recipe for Chocolate Pistachio Truffles in that segment).
