Oh-So-Loaded (guilt-free) Sweet Potato Nachos


Recently, I was craving some deep friend tortilla chip nachos so bad, but, I have certain fitness goals that I am working very hard towards and unfortunately, the traditional crispy-fried nachos do not make the #abgoals cut. But, I also believe that it is important to find balance in our fitness journey, so my form of balance consisted of these savory...delicious...bursting with flavor: Loaded Sweet Potato "nachos". These turned out to be a dream come true for my (and hubby's) taste buds. The best part was that when I decided to make these, I remembered that I had leftover chicken from the Cilantro Lime Chicken tacos we had the other night...score!

Also, fun fact: Sweet potatoes are considered to have a lower glycemic index vs regular white potatoes so they tend to sustain energy levels because they digest more slowly. These were a perfect pick-me-up after a vigorous #LegDay I had at the gym the other day.

I hope you give this recipe a try because I know you will love it!
