Sweet Potato Nacho Pie

Healthier Super Bowl Snacks

Sweet Potato Nacho Pie

We’ve made it to Super Bowl Sunday, one of the best holidays for SNACKS. Earlier this week I whipped up this sweet potato nacho pie for lunch and it was unanimously voted onto Sunday’s menu. It’s a fork and plate situation, and I’m 100% ok with it. Imagine veggie fajitas, that are baked, with melted cheese on top. I know, yum.

For this sweet potato nacho pie, I thinly sliced one large sweet potato and baked it. Then I layered on the rest of the ingredients and popped the whole skillet under the broiler for 2 minutes. If you don’t have it in you to bake the sweet potato and want to substitute in some chips, go for it! I’ll likely do a chip version and a sweet potato version, just for variety.

  • Cast iron skillet


  • 1 large sweet potato- skin on thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp chili powder
  • ½ tsp garlic powder

Fajita Mix:

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 green bell pepper- sliced into strips
  • ¼ of a red onion- thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup corn- I used sweet corn from a can that was leftover from making chili
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp chili powder
  • ½ tsp cumin powder
  • ½ tsp garlic powder


  • 1 can black beans- rinsed and warmed
  • 2-3 tbsp salsa of choice
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Dollop of plain Greek yogurt
  • Guacamole
  • Lime wedges


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Oil two rimmed baking sheets with olive oil and set aside. Thinly slice the sweet potato, then place the rounds on the trays, flipping once to coat each side with oil. Sprinkle on the seasonings. Bake for 15 minutes, then flip each round and bake for another 10-15 minutes. Keep a close eye on them for the last 5 minutes as they go from crispy to burnt quickly!
  • While the potatoes are baking, thinly slice the bell pepper, and onion, and sauté with the corn over medium high heat. Once they begin to caramelize, add the seasoning and stir frequently for a couple more minutes, before removing from heat.
  • During this time, I also rinse the beans and warm them in a small saucepan  so that they don’t go onto the sweet potatoes cold.
  • Line a cast iron skillet with a round piece of parchment paper—I was out so used foil instead. Layer in the sweet potatoes, making sure to cover all the foil. Next, spoon on the beans, followed by the salsa, fajita veggies, and cheese.
  • Place the skillet under your broiler for 2 minutes. Set a timer, and be ready to pull it out!
  • Serve warm with a dollop of plain Greek yogurt, guacamole, and a couple squeezes of lime. Go team!
