You guys, I'm sorry. I can't get behind the halloween themed cupcakes or the fake eyeballs in sangria. It's just not my jam... but what I absolutely CAN get behind are these Sweet Potato Nachos made with all the toppings you could possibly desire! Obviously they are orange so throw them on your Halloween party menu and get ready to fall in love!

We make sweet potato recipes year round here on WGC as they are one of my all time favorite foods, but it feels extra special this time of year because it's kinda sorta fall and turning on the oven is at least semi-acceptable! These nachos combine the best of both worlds - you're getting all the nutrients packed into sweet potatoes (like vitamin B-6, vitamin A, carotene, potassium, vitamins C and E) and then a little decadence from the cheese, guacamole, corn + pico! What's not to love!! Hop to it!

  1. 5 stars
    These were delicious. I used frozen corn bc the store was out. If I make these again, I’ll just cut the sweet potatoes in discs since I had a hard time cutting the wedges evenly and I think smaller pieces would give more crunch!

  2. Ok, so I"m guilty of looking at all those dorky and creepy and somewhat icky looking recipes on Pinterest ~ it's an addication. They are yucky. But I'm never going to make them. These nachos. This is exactly the real food I'd make. Sweet potatoes are just pure love.. Great recipe!

  3. These sound like the nachos of my dreams! I've been obsessed with all things sweet potato lately, so I can't wait to try this recipe out!


  4. ohhhhhh yum! I made something like this recently- but oh how I wish I had the cheese all over mine!! looks so good Gaby.
