"How beautiful are these sweet potato nachos? They have a sweet and spicy flavor and are so cheesy. They can be vegetarian if you leave off the sausage."

Recipe Card


  • 2 peeled and sliced sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 pound ground sausage
  • 3 cups shredded pepper jack cheese
  • 2 cups diced tomatoes
  • 2 cups cooked and drained black beans
  • 1/2 chopped jalapeño


  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and spray a baking sheet.

  • Step 2

    Assemble the sliced sweet potatoes in a single layer on the baking sheet.

  • Step 3

    Bake for 30 minutes or until they begin to brown around the edges. These will be your "chips" so they need to be firm-ish.

  • Step 4

    Spoon the sausage on top of the sweet potatoes after the 30 minutes.

  • Step 5

    Sprinkle 2 cups of cheese over the sausage and potatoes.

  • Step 6

    Add the tomatoes and black beans on top of the cheese.

  • Step 7

    Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top of the tomatoes and beans.

  • Step 8

    Place the jalapeños over the cheese.

  • Step 9

    Place the baking sheet back into the oven for 4-5 minutes so the cheese melts.

  • Step 10

    Serve immediately.
