  • 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced 1/4" thin
  • 1 white onion, sliced
  • 1 cubanelle pepper, diced
  • 1 tablespoon extra light olive oil
  • Freshly ground Himalayan pink salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon extra light olive oil
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 serving homemade taco seasoning
  • 1 (15 oz. can) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 4 oz. grated monterey jack cheese
  • 4 oz. grated extra sharp cheddar cheese


  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • Toss the sweet potato, onion, and pepper with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. On a baking sheet, place the sweet potatoes on the bottom, then top with onion and pepper. Top with Himalayan pink salt and black pepper to taste.
  • Place baking sheet in the oven for 20 minutes.
  • While the nachos are baking, heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil over medium-high heat until it starts to shimmer. Add ground beef and brown. When it's close to being finished, add the garlic. Cook for an additional minute or two. Add in the homemade taco seasoning and the black beans. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • When the nachos are finished baking, remove the baking sheet from the oven. Add the beef mixture on top, top with both cheeses and return the baking sheet to the oven for an additional 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
  • Remove baking sheet from oven. Serve topped with any toppings you desire, such as salsa, sour cream, guacamole, etc. Enjoy!
