Sweet Potato Hash Brown Cups

Yes, I know another muffin tin recipe! Sorry I can’t help it! They are just so darn easy to make, and a great way to use up leftover veggies. I made these with broccoli and onions and topped with some fresh tomatoes and basil from my garden, but you can easily swap out any veggie combo you prefer. You could also add some bacon too. I would have, but I was out. Next time for sure!

Sweet Potato Nachos

It’s a new year and I am finally getting back on track with the blog. It’s been awhile! Sooo I am starting the new year with these amazing sweet potato nachos. These make a perfect snack, appetizer for a party, or even a meal.

These are very simple to make! I gave the potatoes a good wash and sliced them leaving the skin on. I then soaked them in a bowl of water. This helps remove some of the starch in the potatoes which helps in getting crispy potatoes. Another tip to get those sweets crispy is to place them in a single layer on the baking sheet and giving them plenty of room. I ended up using 2 baking sheets.

I then topped them with cheese, black beans, diced tomatoes, jalapeno pepper, cilantro and salsa. You could also add avocado, greek yogurt, or any of you favorite nacho toppings.
