Loaded Sweet Potato Rounds

Loaded Sweet Potato Rounds

Loaded Sweet Potato Rounds – a healthy version of nachos, great for parties. Also versatile – change the toppings to fit the tastes of your hungry crowd

I call these a healthy version of nachos … but that’s stretching it. The sweet potatoes are actually soft (though you can cook them till outside is crispy), but I like them that way. These are yummy, and actually can make a full meal. Chiles & sharp cheddar are always great together. Top them with whatever you want.

Note that I used dark chili powder from Walmart – this is a mixture of chili pepper, paprika, cumin, garlic, oregano, and salt. Good flavor and makes this recipe simple. Some chili powders have a different spice mix or no added spices.This was the first time I’ve tried Cacique Cilantro Lime Sour Cream. Nice flavor – you can use it to perk up dishes without adding other seasonings. I’ll be using it for all kinds of dishes.

This would make a good appetizer for a party, but what I would do is put out the toppings (chopped tomatoes, green onions, olives, sour cream, shredded lettuce, etc) and serve these with the chiles and melted cheese hot from the oven. Let guests choose their own topping.

This is something I’ll definitely make again, but most often as a meal. They are satisfying & filling! Hope you like them!

Serves: 4 servings
Ingredients
  • 1 lb sweet potatoes
  • 1½ tsp dark chili powder (I used Walmart brand)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ¼ cup diced medium hot green chiles
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • ¼ cup diced tomato
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • Cacique Cilantro Lime Sour Cream (or plain sour cream)
  • Optional toppings: diced avocado, chopped cilantro, sliced olives
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Slice the sweet potatoes into ½ inch rounds, leaving skins on. Dump them into a plastic bag, Sprinkle the dark chili powder on, then shake and massage the bag to coat the sweet potatoes with the chili powder.
  3. Open the bag, and pour the olive oil over the sweet potatoes. Shake and massage the bag again to coat the sweet potatoes with oil.
  4. Spread the rounds evenly in a large glass baking dish. Bake for 15-20 minutes, testing with a fork to ensure they are cooked soft. If you want them crispy on the outside, also lightly spray with cooking spray and cook till you get a crispy skin, turning to get both sides crispy.
  5. When done, remove from oven, top each with a layer of green chiles, then a generous layer of cheese. Bake for another 3-4 minutes or until cheese is fully melted.
  6. Remove from oven, transfer to serving dish, and top each with tomatoes, green onions, lettuce, any other toppings desired, and squirt some Cacique Cilantro Lime Sour Cream on top.
  7. Serve & enjoy!
Notes
Note:
If using plain chili powder, add 1 tsp garlic powder and ½ tsp salt.
