Loaded Sweet Potato Nachos

Loaded Sweet Potato Nachos-perfect snack for Super Bowl Sunday or any day! 

Loaded Sweet Potato Nachos Recipe on The perfect snack for Super Bowl Sunday!

I have been on a major sweet potato kick. I have been making Baked Sweet Potato Fries almost every single day for lunch. I eat them hot off the pan. Who needs a plate?

Over the weekend, we were watching football and Josh suggested we make nachos. Nachos sounded good, but not the chip part. I wanted my pan of sweet potatoes for lunch. I had the most brilliant idea ever. I told Josh to make Sweet Potato Nachos! Since I am pregnant and because Josh loves me, he went along with my idea and made a big pan of Loaded Sweet Potato Nachos!

Josh cut the sweet potatoes into rounds, so they resembled chips. He used a mandoline slicer so all of the sweet potato rounds would be the same size. If you don’t have a mandoline, no worries, you can use a knife.

Josh roasted the chips until they were crispy. He pulled the pan out of the oven and smothered them with cheese and black beans. He put the pan back in the oven so the cheese could melt.

He topped the cheesy sweet potato nachos with green onions, cilantro, avocado, and sour cream. He wanted to add jalapeño slices, but I put my foot down…and since I am pregnant, I get my way:) I didn’t want to have heartburn for the rest of the day! If you don’t have to worry about heartburn, I am sure jalapeño would be a nice addition!

Loaded Sweet Potato Nachos are my kind of nachos. They were everything I hoped for and MORE! I am obsessed! I want to eat them for every meal!

If you are looking for a killer Super Bowl snack, make Loaded Sweet Potato Nachos! They are perfect for game day…or any day. I can’t wait until the big game to make them again! I might make them every day until Super Bowl Sunday. I just hope I don’t turn orange!

Loaded Sweet Potato Nachos are the perfect game day snack! Load them up with your favorite nacho toppings!


3 large sweet potatoes, washed and sliced into 1/4-inch rounds
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 large avocado, pit removed and diced
Sour cream or Greek yogurt


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

2. Place the sweet potato rounds on a large baking sheet. You might need two baking sheets if you run out of room. You don't want to overcrowd the sweet potatoes. Toss the sweet potatoes in olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake for 20 minutes. Use a spatula to flip the sweet potato rounds. Bake for an additional 10 minutes or until sweet potatoes are crisp.

3. Remove the pan from the oven and sprinkle cheese and black beans over the sweet potatoes. Bake until cheese is melted, about 5-7 minutes.

4. Remove pan from oven and top with green onions, cilantro, avocado, and sour cream or Greek yogurt. Serve immediately.

  7. Maryea {happy healthy mama} — January 22, 2014 @ 6:38 am

    It’s okay if you turn a little orange. It’s winter and we all could use a little color, right? 😉 These look great!

  8. Andrea — January 22, 2014 @ 7:21 am

    Looks deeeee-lish! What a fun take on sweet potatoes too. I just pinned AND I’m so gonna make soon! Thx for a great recipe.

    We had one of those insights last night, too. We made sweet potato pizza. Half the sweet potatoes, roast cut side down, then top with cheese and broil for a few minutes. I had never thought of using sweet potatoes that way before.

  10. Jenny Flake — January 22, 2014 @ 8:41 am

    Woohoo! Look at those gorgeous nachos! Love them!

    Love this idea! I’m a big fan of sweet potato fries too, and who doesn’t like nachos? Getting rid of the chips is a great idea.

  20. Linda — January 22, 2014 @ 10:38 am

    Love baked sweet potatoes but have not tried the fries and these nachos sound good. My husband will not eat them.

    oh my gosh, sweet potato nachos?! this is seriously the best football app ever!!

  28. Lisa Johnson — January 22, 2014 @ 3:44 pm

    Well, I know firsthand how delicious these are, because I’m building a whole small business on it!

    My company’s called Yummy Yammy, and I started here in my Vermont kitchen… I make sweet potato salsas… there are Mexican ones (mild/med/hot) with black bean, corn, and chipotle; Tuscan one w roasted red pepper, white bean, basil; and a Moroccan one, with curry lentil and kale. It is so fun to play around with sweeties.

    I’m so happy when I find other sweet potato lovers… happy day to you, and I hope all goes great with your pregnancy! Bound to be a healthy babe!

  29. Katrina @ Warm Vanilla Sugar — January 22, 2014 @ 6:21 pm

    These photos are absolutely stunning! The bright orange sweet potatoes are perfect with the creamy green avocado. I’m totally going to make a pre-game day batch this weekend

  32. Laura Dembowski — January 22, 2014 @ 8:43 pm

    You definitely deserve to get your way since you’re pregnant! Can’t wait to try this recipe. Sweet potatoes and avocados are my favorite foods.

  33. Gina — January 22, 2014 @ 8:47 pm

    True story-I was trying to explain to my husband today how crazy my pregnancy cravings have been. For the past two weeks, all I’ve wanted is nachos, but I’m also on a massive sweet potato kick. I told him that we’re making sweet potato chips smothered in ground beef, salsa, and guac this weekend. And since I’m non stop hungry, I googled sweet potato nachos to curb my cravings and found your recipe. I love it!

  34. Julianne @ Beyond Frosting — January 22, 2014 @ 11:40 pm

    what a great idea! Sounds delicious!

  35. Farah @everylittlecrumb — January 22, 2014 @ 11:45 pm

    Wow! I love sweet potatoes..I love nachos…Your pregnancy craving led to a beautiful dish. Pinning and making asap :)

  38. Niki — January 23, 2014 @ 10:49 pm

    This looks amazing! Three things I have become addicted to – sweet potatoes, avocado and black beans all in one dish! You’re officially my kitchen hero!

  39. Gaby — January 23, 2014 @ 11:29 pm
