Instead of loading up on the empty calories in typical nachos, try this version packed with filling fiber (aka resistant starch), skin-glowing vitamin A, and electrolyte-rich potassium.

I tried twice but couldn’t make the potatoes into anything suitable for nachos. Went straight from soft to burnt. Some slices were soft with burnt spots and some were burnt with soft spots!
Even cooking of these is all about the cutting! Using a mandoline so each one is the same thickness really works well. Also you can do a combo of bake/broil…bake until mostly done, and then broil at the end to crisp up. xoxo
Air frying the sweet potatoes are also a great option! Super crispy!
Love this idea. I haven’t gotten an air-fryer yet. You love it? What else do you use it for? Healthy chicken fingers & fish sticks?
I had these for lunch today and yes, you do have to be careful not to burn them but mine were not evenly cut either since i did it with a knife but only a few got too done. They were delicious! Really yummy!
