Healthy Sweet Potato Nachos - dairy free option
EVERYTHING on this plate is dairy free, with the exception of my Greek yogurt. Thankfully my body processes that wonderfully.
Everything on here is actually really healthy for me!
Cheese made from almond and rice.
HEALTHY nacho's that HIT THE SPOT!
So let me tell you about the cheese!
They have ZERO trans fats and are made from nuts, or rice.
AND... everything is CERTIFIED organic.
They know a way to my heart.
You can use a spicier Jalapeno Jack

I got both of mine from Lisanatti foods.
To make the sweet potato nachos...
3 large sweet potatoes, washed and sliced into 1/4-inch rounds
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 large avocado, pit removed and diced
Sour cream or Greek yogurt
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Place the sweet potato rounds on a large baking sheet. You might need two baking sheets if you run out of room. You don’t want to overcrowd the sweet potatoes. Toss the sweet potatoes in olive oil and season with sea salt and pepper. Bake for 20 minutes. Use a spatula to flip the sweet potato rounds. Bake for an additional 10 minutes or until sweet potatoes are crisp.

Remove pan from oven and top with all your favorite toppings. I used cooked chicken, avocado, red onion, tomato, greek yogurt. and it was SO YUM!
As you can see the alternative cheese shreds and melts perfectly. I am thrilled, happy and full.
