    Karen Elizabeth's Note:

    A good twist on traditional nachos, these come from Linda McCartneys World Of Vegetarian Cooking. In fact, I did not make the sweet potato part, but I did make the rest of the recipe, and really loved the tomato/bean sauce. Omitting the sweet potatoes decreases cooking time by approx 60 minutes. I used only one whole green pepper, since I had no red pepper. I also made a spicy avocado guacamole, (see notes at end of recipe), and whipped some sour cream to accompany this, we loved it. Hope you enjoy them too!

    If you make guacamole you will need


    1. 1
      In a large baking dish, mix the sweet potato, 2 tblsp of oil, cumin and coriander seeds, and bake, uncovered, at 180C/350F/gas mark 4, for 50-60 minutes until tender. (NB I did not make this part of the recipe)(If you also choose to omit this step, preheat the oven to 180C/350F/gas mark 4 now.).
    2. 2
      Heat the remaining oil gently in a pan and add the onion, garlic, chilli and paprika.
    3. 3
      Cover and cook until the onion is soft, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    4. 4
      Add the tomatoes with their juice, and the peppers, and simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes.
    5. 5
      Stir in the beans.
    6. 6
      Divide the corn chips between four individual ovenproof dishes, top with the bean mixture, then the sweet potato, and finish with the cheese.
    7. 7
      Bake for 10 minutes until the nachos are well heated through, and the cheese has melted.
    8. 8
      Serve sprinkled with coriander, with avocado and soured cream served separately.
    9. 9
      NOTE: I made a simple guacamole with the avocado.
    10. 10
      I mashed it with a tblsp lemon juice, then I added a chopped fresh tomato, a few drops of hot pepper sauce, and some ground salt and pepper.
    11. 11
      I beat some lemon juice into a cup of cream.(I used more than recipe states, I like sour cream!).
    12. 12
      I then served these separately, they were delicious with the nachos!

      Well, I did skip the avocado, and did make this with the guacamole, and added some miniature jalapenos. We did enjoy the sweet potato in this, a very nice twist. The spices were right on as well as the guacamole. Made for a midday / dinner for us. No leftovers here. Made for 4 your consideration.

      What a treat! Love sweet potatoes seasoned this way. Used black beans instead of kidney. And for some odd reason grocery did not have a red chile pepper so used jalapeño and that was too mild in heat. Would not change a thing. Roasted the sweet potatoes, made salsa, and guacamole earlier in day then assembled. For the two of us, this made three lunches. Made for my Spring PAC 2014 baby.

      This is ridiculous. Ridiculously GOOD, that is! Just loved the spicy chili (kept some seeds) with the sweet potatoes and all the flavor from the cumin and coriander. This was gone in a flash! Thanks for sharing!
