Delicious crunchy baked sweet potatoes loaded with corn, beans, onion, jalapenos, cheese, sour cream and avocado slices!

These sweet potato nachos are hearty and filling – without being greasy or heavy.

Vegetarian Sweet Potato Nachos

We designed this recipe to be full of flavor, hearty, and delicious – without meat.

You can certainly add meat if you’d like, but we packed a ton of budget friendly flavor into this dish and are bringing lots of hearty veggies that help fill you up!

If you’d like to modify this recipe to be vegan, please use a vegan sour cream and cashew or almond cheese – no other swaps needed, and you can keep it gluten free.

Easy Sweet Potato Chips

This recipe starts with a twist on our crunchy sweet potato chips recipe, but we’re tossing them in tons of herbs and spices for extra flavor – without more calories or anything artificial!

Toss sweet potato slices in spices and olive oil until well mixed, before spreading out on prepared baking sheet.

How To Bake Sweet Potato Nachos

Once your chips have been baked to crispy and crunchy, its time to load them all up with tons of toppings!

Spread toppings and cheese out all over chips evenly and bake until melted and golden brown!

To be sure your nachos come out great every time, there are a couple tips:

  • Make sure your sweet potatoes are baked to crunchy before topping.
  • Pile sweet potato chips in middle of baking sheet to make it easier to spread toppings over all chips.
  • Bake to golden brown – the time might vary depending on how many toppings you choose!
  • Chips can be made ahead of time, but nachos taste best freshly baked.

Sweet Potato Nacho Toppings

We’re adding lots of beans, onions, jalapenos or peppers, corn to these nachos, but you can add jackfruit, lentils, chickpeas, olives, green chilis – anything you’d like!

If you want to add meat to these nachos (we’re making them vegetarian here), ground beef, carne asada, or shredded chicken, or instant pot barbacoa go great with sweet potato nachos!

Recipe FAQ’s

How long do sweet potato nachos last?

This recipe can be stored up to four days in the refrigerator – but we prefer sweet potato nachos that are freshly baked for the best texture and flavor. When reheating, remove any sour cream and avocados, and add a little more cheese for more flavor.

Can I pre-bake sweet potato chips for nachos?

We prefer eating sweet potato nachos the same day they are made – but the dish can be prepped up to a day in advance.
Bake chips to crunchy, then store in a container in a cool dry place until ready to make nachos – or assemble nachos and wrap tightly with plastic wrap, so it’s ready to pop in oven right before dinner!
