Air Fryer Sweet Potato Nachos

Nachos made from sweet potatoes?! I don't know about you but this is like my dream come true. I used to LOVE nachos, but now I try to avoid eating tortilla chips on the regular. They've got tons of oil, are highly processed, and just generally don't make me feel good after eating them. But sweet potatoes? Yes please. I never feel bad after eating a sweet p.

The secret to making the perfect tray of sweet potato nachos is to slice the potatoes nice and thin, then crisp them up in the air fryer or oven. When you create crispy sweet potatoes you have the perfect vessels for all your tasty toppings: queso, beans, corn, onions, peppers, jalapenos - whatever you want!

Recipe Features

  • Dietary needs — these Air Fryer Sweet Potato Nachos are dairy-free, plant-based, oil-free, gluten-free, and sugar-free
  • Nutrient-dense — these nachos are all about the veggies, from sweet potatoes as the base, to veggies in the queso, to tons of healthy toppings you have a delicious veggie-forward meal

Do I have to use an air fryer?

Nope! I make crispy sweet potatoes in my oven all the time. An air fryer simply speeds up the cooking process and allows you to cook at a lower heat with the same results.

If you have a convection oven, you can simulate the air circulation of an air fryer really easily. Even if you don't have a convection oven (I don't) you can still achieve the same results with a few tweaks. I provide instructions for both air fryer and oven cooking below.

Ingredients

  • Sweet Potatoes: Grab a few small/medium sweet potatoes. The smaller ones work best to create sturdy chips, but as long as you try to keep the slices the same size, any size will do.
  • Easy Vegan Queso: In case you weren't getting enough veggies from the sweet potato part of these nachos, my easy vegan queso is also filled with veggies. Yum!
  • Toppings: black beans, tomatoes, jalapeno, corn, pickled red onions

How to make Air Fryer Sweet Potato Nachos

Step 1. Thinly slice the sweet potatoes. Place on the mesh rack and air fry at 350 for 10-15 minutes, until the potatoes become crispy but not burnt. Alternatively, you can line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and bake in the oven at 450 for 15 minutes.

Step 2. Place the potatoes on a plate. Top with fresh queso, black beans, pickled red onions, jalapenos, corn, and tomatoes. Enjoy!

thank you for the oil free recipe. I'm getting introduced to wild Bolete mushrooms here in Colorado, and everyone sautes Bolete's in butter or olive oil. I'm on a veggie, oil free regimen for heart health reasons. and your recipe suggestion may fill the bill. I can't wait to give it a try.
