Sweet Potato Chips: Ketogenic, Paleo Friendly…AWESOME NACHOS

Sweet potato is an amazing alternative to corn chips or tortillas for making amazing nachos, or even just as a replacement for potato chips.

We don’t even have to mention the great health benefits of sweet potato compared to regular potatoes and when you bake them instead of deep frying….WHOA it gets even better.

I made this recipe for Facebook Live and my #FitFriends were loving it! https://www.facebook.com/iamcarrieburrows/videos/10154167938912003/

I bet if you make this your kids will devour it and you won’t ever miss the crappy ones you used to eat!

Guacamole
2 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
1-2 tbsp lime juice
2 mashed avocado
2 tbsp green onions, chopped

Option 2 (the fast option)
2 avocados
1-3 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
pepper

For the sweet potato chips
2 large sweet potatoes
3 tbsp avocado oil
1 tsp salt

For the meat
1 onion, finely diced (optional)
1 lb. ground beef (or turkey, chicken, venison)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp salt/pepper
Your choice of seasonings:
chili powder, Mrs Dash

Option 2 (the fast option)
Ground meat
Salt/pepper to taste
1-3 tsp garlic powder
1-3 tsp onion powder
12 oz. canned diced tomatoes or 1 cup of salsa

Directions
To make the sweet potato chips, preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Slice thinly, using either a mandolin or sharp knife. In a large bowl, toss them with the oil and salt. Place the chips in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet covered with parchment paper.

Bake in the oven for 10 minutes, then flip the chips over and bake for another 10 minutes. For the last ten minutes, watch the chips closely and pull off any chips that start to brown, until all of the chips are cooked.

While the sweet potato chips are baking, start browning the meat. Add the onion to the pan and sauté until softened. Add the ground beef and cook for 5-6 minutes, stirring regularly. Add the garlic, spices and stir well to combine.

Cook until it is no longer pink.

Cut and scoop out the avocado. Mash the avocado, add in your seasonings (option 1 or 2)

To assemble the nachos, form a large circle with the sweet potato chips on a platter. Add the beef mixture into the middle of the circle, and then top with guacamole, salsa and green onions.

Mini Pepper Nachos
Slice the peppers in half
Fill them with the meat, guacamole and top with salsa or diced tomatoes.

Note: My husband makes the sweet potato slightly different (he has way more patience).
When he does the sweet potato chips, he sets the over for 250 and lets them back for 90 minutes, flipping them halfway through. They get a little crispier this way.
