Loaded Sweet Potato Nachos

Servings 4


  • 3 medium sweet potatoes peeled and sliced to 1/8th inch
  • 1 Tbsp avocado oil or even better is the spray avocado oil
  • Tajin or Chili Lime seasoning
  • 2 cups shredded chicken I used rotisserie chicken
  • 3/4 cup black beans
  • 1/2 cup corn
  • 3/4 cup red cabbage
  • 1/3 cup Cleveland Kraut Gnar Gnar or pickles, kimchi, or another fermented veggie
  • 1 cup shredded white cheddar cheese about 4 oz
  • Cilantro chopped

Avocado Sauce

  • 1 avocado
  • 2 Tbsp Greek yogurt
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/3 cup cilantro can use the stems too!
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp lime juice


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Meanwhile, slice sweet potatoes to 1/8th inch thick using a mandolin. If you don't have a mandolin, slice as well as you can. Spread potato slices out on a baking sheet - careful not to over crowd. You may need 2 baking sheets.
  • Spray (or drizzle) potatoes with oil. Sprinkle with chili lime or tajin seasoning.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes or until start to brown. Flip and bake another 5 minutes. Watch closely so they don't burn.
  • Remove from oven and pile into the center of a baking pan.
  • Meanwhile, place all the avocado sauce ingredients in a food processor or blender to combine. Set aside.
  • Top the potatoes with: chicken, black beans, corn, red cabbage, kraut, and cheese. Place back in the oven and bake until the cheese melts, approximately 5 minutes. Broil for 1-2 minutes, if you like that crispy look.
  • Remove from oven. Drizzle with avocado sauce and cilantro. Dig in!


Other Thoughts:
  • While this topping combination will knock your socks off, feel free to add or delete any toppings you want.
  • Sweet potatoes are cool but I won't be mad if you make these on top of tortilla chips instead - that really cuts out the hard step! Or, throw these toppings into a burrito shell, wrap it up, and call it a day.
Athletes: Not shocking - these guys have the complex carbs, protein, healthy fats, and antioxidants to fuel you up right. Adjust the portion based on your hunger and training. This feeds big and small appetites alike.
Healthy Eating: Who said healthy eating has to be tasteless?! These guys will make you forget you're also fueling yourself up very well! Just like with athletes, adjust your portion to your hunger and appetite.
Kids: If your kid is shy of new food combinations, save a few of the toppings and give it to them deconstructed on their plate. Allow them to build their own nachos on their plate. Hopefully, they even try something new on there.
