Black Bean Mango Sweet Potato Nachos

I first heard of “sweet potato” nachos way back when I started blogging about a year and a half ago. I always wanted to try them but never did… what if I use the wrong toppings? What if I don’t make the potatoes right? What if they’re gross?

These are the struggles that go on inside my head.

Growing up (it feels wrong saying “growing up”… I’m like 15) an old favorite of mine was making nachos in the microwave! I’d just take some chips, throw some shredded cheese on, and nuke ‘em until the cheese was bubbly and melty. And I thought I was making something impressive. hahaha.

Black Bean Mango Sweet Potato Nachos with Avocado

Back in May (yep… that’s when I made these) I had a sweet potato that was looking old and done went and made some sweet potato nachos. I had a mango that was on its last leg and some black beans that were starting to stink up the fridge. Plus some wilting cilantro that needed to be used and a little greek yogurt way past its expiration. And everyone knows avocado just makes everything better…

I’m not quite sure the theme I was going for here. Tex-Mex/summery salad? I was originally going to make this a quinoa salad but then I realized I only had about 1/4 cup quinoa left in the pantry. Which is still sitting in there. I absolutely love quinoa but for some reason I don’t like cooking it? Anyway, this is better.

    I turn 18 in October, and I’ve always felt like you’re my age! I’m ALWAYS surprised when I realize you’re younger than me :) (I mean this in a REALLY nice and good way! ) These nachos are like nachos on steroids. I’m fine with classic cheese and salsa, but you took this to the next level! xx
