These loaded sweet potato nachos are FANTASTIC! The sweetness of the sweet potato nicely counterbalances the spiciness of the homemade taco seasoning in the beef. This dish is also loaded with protein, because of the black beans, ground beef, and cheese. A little goes a long way here :). After eating this dish, I will never make nacho dishes any other way. Using sweet potatoes as the base versus nacho chips, adds a ton of flavor and texture. These loaded sweet potato nachos are perfect for the chilly early spring nights, when you want a hot meal that’s not too heavy. 🙂
