Sweet Potato and Black Bean Nachos

With all of this cold weather, warming foods are exactly what we need. They're great for our digestion and they warm us up from the inside out. 

These nachos are not only warm in temperature, but the nacho spice gives a warmth as well. Not only that- but they're delicious! This recipe calls for ordinary dairy cheese but that can easily be swapped out for a vegan version. 

Find the recipe below and enjoy!


Sweet Potato and Black Bean Nachos

Author: www.halfbakedharvest.com



  • 3-4 medium sweet potatoes cut into wedges
  • 1 small head cauliflower cut into florets
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons Taco Seasoning 
  • 1 400g can black beans drained + rinsed
  • 1 1/2 - 2 cups cheese (shredded) 
  • guacamole + plain greek yogurt for serving
  • fresh cilantro green onions for serving

Green Chile Salsa

  • 8 tomatillos
  • 1 jalapeño
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 can Green Chilies or fresh chillies. 
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1-2 teaspoons salt depending on your taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 220 degrees.
  2. Place the sweet potatoes wedges and cauliflower florets in a large bowl and drizzle with olive oil. Add the taco seasoning and gently toss with your hands or two spatulas to evenly coat. Spread the wedges and florets out onto one or two baking sheets in an even layer. Bake for 15-20 minutes, then flip and bake for 15-20 minutes more. You want the sweet potatoes to be tender, but crisp.
  3. Remove from the oven and top with the black beans, leaving out 1/2 cup of black beans to add at the end. Add the cheese in an even layer. Return the pan or pans to the oven and bake for another 5-10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  4. Top with the remaining black beans, Green Chile Salsa (recipe below), guacamole, cilantro, green onions and greek yogurt. DIG IN!

Green Chilie Salsa:

  1. Preheat the broiler to high
  2. Place the tomatillos, jalapeño and garlic on a sheet pan, leaving the skins on the tomatillos and garlic. Broil for about 5 minutes or until charred all over. Remove and allow to cool.
  3. Once cool enough to handle, remove the skins from the tomatillos and garlic, then discard. Halve the jalapeño and remove the seeds or leave some in for more heat! Add the tomatillos, garlic, jalapeño, Old El Paso Chopped Green Chiles, cilantro, juice from one lime and 1 teaspoon salt to a blender. Blend until smooth and combined. Pour into a bowl and place in the fridge for one hour to let the flavors mend. Taste and add more salt if desired. SERVE!
