Nachos made healthy with baked sweet potato chips and nutritious toppings like chicken, bell peppers, and avocado. Recipe is gluten-free and can be made vegan.
  • 2 Large Sweet Potatoes
  • Cooking Spray (I prefer Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Coconut Oil)
  • 2 Organic Chicken Breasts*
  • 1 T. Oil of choice
  • 2 Bell Peppers (any colors you prefer)
  • 2 T. Fajita Seasoning**
Optional Toppings
  • Avocado
  • Greek Yogurt
  • Salsa
  • Chives, diced
  1. Wash and scrub sweet potatoes and cut into ¼ inch thick rounds.
  2. Place sweet potatoes on a baking sheet, mist with cooking spray, sprinkle with salt.
  3. Bake for 30 minutes at 400 F, flipping half way through.
  4. While sweet potato chips bake, make the fajita topping.
  5. Slice chicken breast and bell peppers into strips. In a small bowl, toss them with the fajita seasoning.
  6. Heat a large saute pan over medium. Once warm, add 1 T. oil. Let oil warm for about 1 minute, then add the chicken and bell peppers. Stir fry for about 10 minutes, stirring often, until chicken is cooked through. Note - you may need to add a little more cooking spray or 1-2 T. of water to keep everything from sticking.
  7. Top sweet potato chips with fajita mixture and any optional topping. Enjoy immediately!
*Vegan option: swap chicken for 1 can Black Beans, drained + rinsed.
**If you don't have fajita seasoning, you can make your own using 1 T. Cumin, ½ T. Garlic Powder, ½ T. Onion Powder, 1 tsp. Chili Powder, 1 tsp. Paprika, ¼ tsp. Salt, and a dash of Pepper.
***Calorie count does not include toppings.
