Sweet Potato Fries Nacho Mash-Up

By: Marge Perry & David Bonom

Ingredients

1 1/4 pound of sweet potato peeled
2 teaspoons of olive oil
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup of canned low sodium black beans drained, rinsed
3 tablespoons of bottled medium hot salsa
2 tablespoons of pickled jalapeno pepper slices drained
1/2 cup of jack cheese shredded

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F.
  2. Cut the sweet potato into 1/2-inch thick slices. Stack the slices and cut in ½-inch wide sticks; transfer to a bowl and toss with the oil and salt. Arrange in a single layer on a Circulon baking sheet.
  3. Roast the potatoes 12 minutes, remove from the oven and turn over, taking care to keep them in a single layer. Return to the oven and roast until browned and tender, about 12 minutes longer. Remove from the oven and gently push the sweet potato fries to the center of the baking sheet. Top with the beans, salsa, jalapeño slices and cheese. Return to the oven and bake until the cheese melts, about 3-4 minutes. Remove from the oven, slide on to a plate, and serve immediately.
