Loaded Sweet Potato Nachos


2 small sweet potatoes
1 tablespoon olive oil (optional coconut or avocado oil)
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
Dash of paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Skinless chicken breast (1 or 2)
2 cups black beans (well drained)
1 jalapeño (optional)
½ cup low fat cheese
½ avocado
Pico de gallo (optional)
Green onion, for garnish


1. Preheat oven to 400˚F/200˚C.
2. Evenly slice sweet potatoes into rounds.
3. In a medium-sized bowl, toss rounds with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper until well-coated.
4. Lay rounds flat on a parchment-lined baking sheet and set aside.
5. On a second parchment-lined baking sheet, season chicken breast with olive oil, salt, and pepper, to taste. Wrap the parchment around the chicken, folding at the edges.
6. Bake the sweet potatoes and the chicken in the oven for 20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and juices run clear.
7. Allow both to cool. Then, shred the chicken using two forks.
8. Line the bottom of a medium-sized skillet with the sweet potato rounds. Top with shredded chicken, black beans, jalapeño if desired, and cheese. Broil for 5-10 minutes or until toppings are heated through and cheese is melted.
9. Garnish with avocado, pico de gallo, and green onion, if desired. Serve immediately.
10. Enjoy!

Health Benefits of Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are a good source of magnesium, which is the relaxation and anti-stress mineral. Also , Sweet potatoes are naturally sweet-tasting but their natural sugars are slowly released into the bloodstream, helping to ensure a balanced and regular source of energy, without the blood sugar spikes linked to fatigue and weight gain.

Their rich orange color indicates that they are high in carotenoids like beta carotene and other carotenoids, which is the precursor to vitamin A in your body.  Carotenoids help strengthen our eyesight and boost our immunity to disease, they are powerful antioxidants that help ward off cancer and protect against the effects of aging.

Try them roasted, puréed, steamed, baked, or grilled. You can add them to soups and stews, or grill and place on top of leafy greens for a delicious salad. I enjoy grilling them with onions and red peppers for amazing sandwich or wrap ingredients.  Puree them and add to smoothies and baked goods.
