Most people think that nachos are a treat to be reserved for special occasions — like the Super Bowl, Cinco de Mayo, etc.
I say, nachos should be an everyday eat!
But can you really eat spicy nachos on the reg and keep your hot bod?
Of course you can…
…when you make your own healthy sweet potato nachos!
These Chicken Fajita Sweet Potato Nachos are made from simple baked sweet potatoes chips and topped with a heap of healthy ingredients including sautéed organic chicken breast, red and yellow bell peppers, fat free greek yogurt (my favorite substitute for sour cream), and avocado.
They’re gluten-free and can easily be made vegan by swapping the chicken for black beans.
These make a great Super Bowl snack or, thanks to their quick prep time, a tasty weeknight meal.
If you think nachos just aren’t complete without a an ooey gooey cheese sauce, I don’t blame you.
Feel free to drench these babies in a delicious Vegan “Cheese” Sauce — I won’t only support it, I’ll ask for invite to enjoy them with you.
- 2 Large Sweet Potatoes
- Cooking Spray (I prefer Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Coconut Oil)
- 2 Organic Chicken Breasts*
- 1 T. Oil of choice
- 2 Bell Peppers (any colors you prefer)
- 2 T. Fajita Seasoning**
- Greek Yogurt
- Chives, diced
- Wash and scrub sweet potatoes and cut into ¼ inch thick rounds.
- Place sweet potatoes on a baking sheet, mist with cooking spray, sprinkle with salt.
- Bake for 30 minutes at 400 F, flipping half way through.
- While sweet potato chips bake, make the fajita topping.
- Slice chicken breast and bell peppers into strips. In a small bowl, toss them with the fajita seasoning.
- Heat a large saute pan over medium. Once warm, add 1 T. oil. Let oil warm for about 1 minute, then add the chicken and bell peppers. Stir fry for about 10 minutes, stirring often, until chicken is cooked through. Note - you may need to add a little more cooking spray or 1-2 T. of water to keep everything from sticking.
- Top sweet potato chips with fajita mixture and any optional topping. Enjoy immediately!
**If you don't have fajita seasoning, you can make your own using 1 T. Cumin, ½ T. Garlic Powder, ½ T. Onion Powder, 1 tsp. Chili Powder, 1 tsp. Paprika, ¼ tsp. Salt, and a dash of Pepper.
***Calorie count does not include toppings.
