Why exactly would you make these Roasted Sweet Potato Chips for your nachos?

Roasted Sweet Potato Chips For Your Nachos

Here is an extremely unlikely reason…

You find yourself craving nachos (stacked with your favorite toppings of course) but notice that someone has secretly finished the bag of nacho chips (groan).

AND…for some strange reason you have a sweet potato among your stash of food.

Your first thought might be:

“What the what?”

Followed by a sudden epiphany:

“Hmm…sweet potato fries are delicious, why not sweet potato chips for my nachos?”

No one thought sweet potato fries or sweet potato hash browns would be a thing…until they became a thing, right?

Which brings us back to the question: why would you make these roasted sweet potato chips for your nachos?

It’s not because they are super delicious, nutritious, and make nachos look extra awesome. No, that’s the likely reason you might make these.

The extremely unlikely reason is because you…yes you…are “the chosen one” to bring Roasted Sweet Potato Chips to THE FOREFRONT OF THE COMFORT FOOD WORLD!!!

Then again, maybe you really want nachos, are out of nacho chips, and are willing to give this sweet potato chip idea a try.

That’s a likely reason as well…

Makes: Enough for 1 to 2 People  Prep Time: 10 minutes  Cook Time:  25 minutes


1 large sweet potato (unpeeled), cut into 1/4-inch thick rounds
1 Tbsp. olive oil (canola or vegetable oil works as well)
1 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. allspice
1/4 tsp. salt

Nacho Topping Idea
1/4 cup sliced black olives
1/2 green bell pepper, diced
2 Tbsp. red onion, diced (or use whatever onion you have)
1/2 cup jarred hot banana pepper slices, drained and chopped
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
Salsa and sour cream for topping (optional)


Preheat oven to 400° F and line a sheet pan with parchment paper (or aluminum foil).

In a large bowl whisk together oil, paprika, allspice, and salt. Add sweet potato rounds and toss to coat each with oil mixture. Evenly space each sweet potato round on prepared sheet pan. Bake in oven for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, to make the nacho topping, in a bowl combine olives, green pepper, red onion, and banana peppers.

To assemble nachos, remove roasted sweet potato chips from oven. Use tongs to arrange the sweet potato chips in the center of the sheet pan. Evenly spoon on topping mixture, then sprinkle with cheese. Broil in the oven on high for 2 minutes. Serve with salsa and sour cream (if using).
