These loaded sweet potato nachos are simple to make, and a healthier choice than their traditional corn chip-based cousin.
The nachos are made with thinly sliced and roasted sweet potatoes in the place of regular corn chips and loaded with black beans, cheese, mango, and avocado. If they sound delicious, it’s because they are!
