Healthy Sweet Potato Nachos
When to serve these Healthy Sweet Potato Nachos?
This healthy snack idea is honestly a perfect dish anytime of the day! While I enjoyed it as a snack, you can easily serve it as a light appetizer or triple the recipe and make it for dinner. Have a craving in the morning? Make it for breakfast and top it with a fried egg or two. That yolk would soak in beautifully to these baked sweet potato slices.
You can make this healthy dish ahead, skip the toppings and save it for later as well! I wouldn’t recommend adding the toppings, like sour cream or guacamole, if you plan to make it ahead until you’re ready to eat it.
How do I make this healthy sweet potato snack?
You’re going to love this healthy sweet potato snack! While it isn’t low carb because of the sweet potato base, it is much healthier and lower in sodium than using chips. Since you’re slicing this sweet potato so thinly, it cooks up quickly and evenly as well. Snack time win!
Make sure to wash, peel and slice up your sweet potatoes before you begin. You’ll want to ensure the slices are even so it cooks up correctly. I used a mandolin slicer to get each piece the same thinness, which definitely ensures an evenly cooked ‘chip’.
What to top these Healthy Sweet Potato Nachos with?
The sky’s the limit for topping these healthy sweet potato nachos with! You can use a variety of cheese, like cheddar, mozzarella, gouda, gruyere, and more. Pepper Jack is delicious and I always love a sharp cheddar on these too.
