Sweet Potato Nachos!

I love eating nachos, but my waistline not so much.  Sure the chips, the sauces, and the copious amounts of cheese are good, but they are just not worth the calories sometimes.  So, today is a great healthier and cleaner, but just as tasty version of nachos.  Sub the chips for sweet potato slices, a drizzle of sauce, and guacamole and you get my sweet potato nachos!  I hope you enjoy these as much as I did.

1 Sweet Potato

Chicken

Spices of choice for Chicken

Avocado

Tomatoes

Serve and enjoy!  You may have to eat with a fork in addition to your hands just to make sure you pick up all of the tid bits, but who doesn’t do that with nachos?!
