  • 2 large sweet potatoes, scrubbed well and sliced into very thin rounds
  • Parchment paper
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • 1/2 tablespoon avocado or coconut oil
  • 1 large yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 large red or yellow pepper, thinly sliced
  • 8–10 small watermelon radishes, thinly sliced (if you can’t find these in your grocery store, substitute another veggie, such as 3 or 4 zucchini)
  • Chili powder, to taste
  • Black beans
  • Toppings: fresh diced tomatoes, diced avocado, chopped green onions, fresh chopped cilantro, lime wedges)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place sweet potato on parchment paper–lined baking sheet and sprinkle with sea salt. Bake for about 25 minutes. Flip potatoes and bake for another 20 minutes, until slightly browned. Set aside.
  2. Add oil to large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, pepper, and radishes (or zucchini) to pan, along with light sprinkle of sea salt and dash of chili powder. Sauté vegetables until onions are translucent and a bit golden, about 8 minutes. Remove from heat.
  3. Assemble nachos by layering sweet potato rounds, vegetables, black beans, and toppings of your choice. Finish with a squeeze of fresh lime juice.
