Nachos are pretty much a guaranteed crowd-pleaser when it comes to party food. Sweet potato nachos are the same, except much healthier.

This genius game-day upgrade eliminates empty chip calories and replaces them with delicious, nutrient-dense sweet potatoes.

After replacing the base, you can enjoy all of the other amazing, nutritious layers of nachos you’re used to—from peppers and onions to black beans and avocado.

The most important point? Sure, this will be the star of any party spread…but it’s also hearty and nutritious enough for dinner.

WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE

When you think “nachos,” you may not think “antioxidants,” but this dish is filled with the powerful nutrients thanks to sweet potatoes, cayenne, chili powder, and onions. It’s also got plenty of plant-based protein from the black beans and is topped with a dose of avocado-based omega-3s.
