Easy Step-by-Step Directions

Homemade Sweet Potato Chips

  3. Place baking sheets in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, rotating the sheets halfway through cooking time, or until slices are lightly browned and crisp on the edges.
  4. Remove chips to a wire cooling rack and rest while you repeat with the remaining sweet potato slices.

Loaded Nachos

  1. Layer 1/2 of the chips onto a baking sheet or in a glass baking dish.
  2. Top with 1/2 the chicken or taco meat, beans, corn, and cheese.
  3. Repeat with the second layer, ending with cheese on top. Place into the oven and bake 5-10 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  4. While the nachos are baking, combine all the dressing ingredients in a small bowl and whisk together.
  5. Remove pan from oven, add salsa, tomatoes, onions, cilantro, avocado, and guacamole, etc.
