How do I thinly slice potatoes?
The first step to making these sweet potato nachos is to thinly slice the potatoes. You can slice your potatoes a few different ways:
- With a mandolin slicer. I love my slicer but do make sure to use the vegetable grip so you don't accidentally cut your finger!
- You can also use a food processor if you have one that will slice.
- If you don't have either of these machines, a simple sharp knife will do. Just be careful of those fingers!!
Can I fry the potato slices?
You can definitely fry the potatoes if you want your potato nachos to be really crispy!
My little secret "hack" to get crispy potatoes is to brush olive oil onto each slice, and then bake them for 10 minutes before topping them.
For this baked sweet potato nacho recipe, I used Ro*TEL spicy tomatoes and refried beans.
Feel free to use your favorite refried beand and chunky salsa if you prefer."
To create these nachos, all you need are sweet potatoes, shredded cheese, Ro*TEL or salsa, refried beans, and cilantro. Garnish with sour cream, guacamole, and/or scallions!
Take a large sweet potato and slice it thinly. Brush olive oil on each slice then bake the sweet potato slices for 15 minutes.
Remove the sweet potatoes from the oven. Top with beans and Rotel. You can verify if Rotel is Gluten Free.
Finally, top with cheese and bake an additional 8-10 minutes.
When should I serve nachos?
These nachos are best hot right out of the oven! These nachos make a delicious appetizer for game day or any party!
