Choosing A Healthy Life- My Sweet Potato Nachos

Most Mondays are Meatless Mondays at our house. I usually make a great "big salad" (you Seinfeld aficionados will understand). I also bake sweet potatoes and serve them with Ranch Style Beans- those flavors together are delicious!!!

I wanted to do something different last week, but sweet potatoes are so healthy that I wanted to use them- enter Sweet Potato Nachos. I heard about making them on my all time favorite blog, Hungry Runner Girl. My son, C, also likes to make them. I texted C to make sure I was on the right track and below is what I came up with. It is not meatless, but they were so wonderful and filling and fairly healthy!!

I preheated the oven to 400 on convection roast. I sliced the sweet potatoes- skin on.
Put them all in a ziplock and mixed to coat them with olive oil. 


I placed them on a jellyroll pan to bake while I cooked the meat.

After cooking the hamburger meat, I drained and rinsed it
and added taco seasoning and Rotel tomatoes.

This is my favorite seasoning. I find it at HEB stores in Texas.

I then added vegetarian refried beans to the potato slices.


I used refried beans with green chilis because I live in New Mexico now!



I then added the beef mixture, topped it with cheese and put it in the oven to bake until the cheese was melted and everything was HOT.

While baking, I diced tomatoes.

Finished product!


Plated and ready to eat!! It was really good!!

So here are some questions:
1. If you like to use sweet potatoes, how do you add them to your meals?
2. Do you ever do a Meatless Monday? If so, I'd love to know what you fix.
3. Will you try Sweet Potato Nachos? If so, please let me know what you think!!
