Original recipe by Coach Sara A.
Coach Sara A.’s tip: If you love nachos, you have to try these sweet potato nachos for a healthier alternative! Sweet potatoes are rich in complex carbs, fiber, and loaded with vitamin A. They are rich in beta-carotene (which is converted to vitamin A) and anthocyanins, which are antioxidants that may help prevent vision loss, improve eye health, and boost your immune system. The following recipe is vegetarian, but feel free to add your favorite lean protein, such as shredded chicken or pork.
1 large sweet potato, washed and sliced into rounds
1 Tbsp avocado oil
Spices to taste: Salt, black pepper, turmeric, and cumin
One 15.5 ounce can refried beans or black beans (rinsed)
½ cup shredded sharp cheddar or monterey jack cheese
2 ounces (⅓ of a 6 ounce bag) fresh organic spinach, chopped
1-2 stalks green onion, chopped
1 jalapeno, deseeded and sliced (optional)
⅓ cup black olives, sliced (optional)
½ avocado, sliced (optional)
Shredded chicken or pork, cooked (optional)
Favorite hot sauce (I like Tapatio), salsa, or pico de gallo
