Skinny Loaded Sweet Potato Fry Nachos! Simple Skillet Nachos made with sweet potato fries and loaded with healthy toppings! | The Cookie RookieI literally can’t believe Valentine’s Day in only days away.  Are you ready??? I know I’m not.  I’ve tested lots of recipes for the big holiday this year, but most of them have been things I love, maybe not things Pat loves (I have a picky husband on my hands!).  So…I’ve pulled out all the stops with this recipe.  The boy loves nachos.  The boy loves fries.  The boy loves healthy(er) foods.  These Skinny Loaded Sweet Potato Fry Nachos are PERFECT…I’m so excited for Valentine’s Day now that I’ve found the perfect recipe!

They’re loaded with lots of toppings, but still kept skinny by using simple ingredients and only small servings of the indulgent parts, like the cheese.  You don’t have to skimp of flavor to be calorie conscious! I’m learning…slowly but surely!

Simple Skillet Nachos made with sweet potato fries and loaded with healthy toppings! | The Cookie RookieTo keep these “romantic” fry nachos simple and quick, I used some of my favorite brands, Hunts Tomatoes and Alexia Sweet Potato Fries.  I’ve used Alexia before, and have falled in love! I love Hunts Tomatoes because they’re Flash Steamed to peel (instead of using lye).  They’re canned within hours of being picked, right in California.  I can feel good about putting them on these nachos, and it saves me lots of time in the kitchen as well! Alexia Foods is a line of premium, all natural frozen potatoes, breads, and side dishes.  We LOVE their onion rings around here, but their sweet potato fries are my favorite.

 I knew they would be the perfect base to these Skinny Loaded Sweet Potato Fry Nachos.

And just like Hunts, using frozen fries saves SO much time.  The last place you want to be on Valentine’s Day is in the kitchen for hours!

Author: Becky Hardin - The Cookie Rookie
Ingredients
  • 1 jar of your favorite salsa
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 package Alexia Sweet Potato Fries
  • 1 can Hunts Diced Tomatoes
  • 1 can black beans drained
  • 1 can steamed corn drained
  • 1 cup Mexican Blend Cheese
  • Toppings such as low fat sour cream cilantro, jalapenos, avocado, whatever you love!
Instructions
  1. Place chicken breasts with salsa in a slow cooker for 3 hours on high. After three hours, you should be able to easily shred the chicken. Keep on warm until ready to make your nachos.
  2. Prepare Alexia Fries according to package directions.
  3. Once fries are cooked, you're ready to make your nachos!
  4. Prehead oven to 350F
  5. Place fries in the bottom of a skillet (you can do two small skillets, or 1 large skillet)
  6. Top with chicken, beans, corn, and tomatoes.
  7. Finally, top with cheese.
  8. Bake skillet for about 10-12 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly.
  9. Take out and top with cilantro, sour cream, avocado, or anything that you love!
  10. Enjoy!
  11. (you'll have extra chicken, so this is the perfect meal for leftovers as well! You can also freeze the salsa chicken for later use!)

I love nachos, but shy away since they're not usually very healthy! I love this recipe---all the marvelous flavors I crave without the guilt. Such a terrific idea!!!
    Becky Hardin
    Thank you Liz!! I love your site...so much skinny inspiration there!
Kelley
These look amazing!! And my hubby is the same way - he's a meat and potatoes kind of guy. It's hard for me to get him to try things outside his meat and taters bubble sometimes. I'm sure he would love these though! :)
amanda @ fake ginger
Those Alexia fries are my favorite! I love that you made nachos with them. Totally trying it!
Shelby @ Go Eat and Repeat
What a cool idea for sweet potatoes! They are so versatile and I look forward to trying out your combination!
Julia
Oh man these look amazing! I love the sweet potato fries in there!
Joanie @ ZagLeft
We love to make nachos and I love how you used sweet potato fries as the base. I happen to have the very same bag in my freezer now and think I'll be making up a batch of these. They look wonderful!
