Nachos are the classic mid-day snack to keep you sane before dinner or a great spread to put out while watching the game. Finally, this paleo-inspired rendition replaces the traditional corn-based, salt covered tortilla chips with homemade sweet potato chips! Still loaded with toppings and fun flavors, we transform this once not-so-healthy snack into one equally as delicious while substantially better for you!

While we think we cover all the bases with this recipe, if you feel like adding something else to your nachos that we might have missed, go for it! Green onion, cilantro, bell peppers, celery – they all make great additions. Consequently, here is a fantastic homemade salsa recipe, if you’re feeling adventurous!
