15 minutes


35 minutes


7 Servings


  • 2 Sweet Potatoes, sliced thinly
  • 1 Tsp Olive Oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2-1 lb Ground Meat or Shredded Chicken (can use for leftover salads)
  • ½ Onion Diced
  • 1/2 tsp Chili Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin
  • 1/2 Can Black Beans
  • 1/2 Cup Shredded Cheese (optional)
  • 1/2 Bell Pepper, Chopped
  • 1 Tomato, Chopped
  • 1 Bunch of Green Onion, Diced
  • 1 Bunch Cilantro, Chopped
  • 2 Avocados, Diced


  1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
  2. Thinly slice sweet potatoes, place in large bowl, lightly coat with olive oil, salt and pepper.
  3. Cook ground meat in large pan, on medium heat until browned. Add in diced onion and spices of choice. Drain and return to pan.
  4. Use large glass pan and lay out thinly slice sweet potatoes along the bottom. You might need two baking sheets or large pans if you run out of room. You don’t want to overcrowd the sweet potatoes. Bake by themselves for 10-15 minutes, flipping them over at the half way point. Bake for another 10-15 minutes.
  5. Take potatoes out and spread cooked meat, black beans, shredded cheese, peppers, onions and cilantro evenly on top of sliced sweet potatoes
  6. Bake in the oven at 400 F. for 8-10 minutes until edges of potatoes are crisp.
  7. Top with salsa and avocado.

Need a healthy Mexican food meal or some game day snacks? This healthy sweet potato nacho recipe is a crowd pleaser for the Superbowl or a quick easy weeknight family meal!

I love this healthy sweet potato nacho recipe for any time because the toppings are endless and the Mexican flavor is delicious! Eat them with your hands or serve them on a dinner plate. Your family and friends will love adding their own toppings.

These sweet potato nachos are a less processed whole food option and provide a ton of nutrition with veggies, lean protein, and complex carbs. I layered my nachos to have extras for lunch leftovers.

Try these nacho alternatives with zucchini, white potatoes, or any other veggie that sounds good! It’s an easy way to sneak in vegetables and a kid approved dinner!

I strongly encourage getting a veggie dicer for this recipe. With all the amazing vegetable toppings, it will significantly make chopping veggies faster. I also love using an avocado saver for the other half!
