Sweet Potato Nachos

Updated: Feb 3, 2019


My last Super Bowl dish for you all! Well you can really eat these for any occasion, they’re that good. I first roasted up the thinly sliced sweet potato until nice and crispy, who needs chips when you have a perfectly good tatter. I then topped it with all my favorite nacho toppings: corn, beans, a homemade pico de gallo, guacamole, and a cheesy good cashew sauce. The perfect healthy side for any party to enjoy!
