  • 2 large sweet potatoes sliced into rounds
  • 1.5 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil or avocado oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 3/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup frozen whole corn kernels
  • 3/4 cup no-salt-added black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup green bell pepper chopped
  • 1 yellow onion chopped
  • 1/2 cup grape tomatoes sliced in half
  • 3/4 cup shredded Mexican cheese

Optional Toppings: avocado, plain Greek yogurt, chunky salsa, and/or tortilla chips


    • Preheat oven to 400 F. Cover large baking sheet with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
    • Slice sweet potatoes into ¼ inch rounds and place in large bowl. Add olive oil and spices and arrange evenly over sweet potatoes; toss to evenly coat.
    • Transfer sweet potato rounds to baking sheet, and season with fresh cracked black pepper, if desired. 
    • Bake sweet potatoes for 30-35 minutes, flipping them over at 15 minutes to cook evenly. 
    • While they are baking, chop up the bell peppers and onion, and slice cherry tomatoes. 
    • Once sweet potatoes have baked for 30 minutes total, flip once more. They should be close and piled on top of each other; then top with corn, black beans, peppers, onion, tomatoes, and shredded cheese.
    • Place baking sheet back in oven and bake for an additional 7 minutes, or until cheese melts. 
    • Serve with desired toppings. 


    These Sweet Potato Nachos are meatless, but they taste great with my Crockpot Chicken Tacos on top if you want to add meat!
