Roasted Sweet Potato Nachos
One 5.5 ounce bag Way Better Snacks Simply Sweet Potato Tortilla Chips
1 medium sweet potato
1 1/2 T olive oil, divided
1/2 t ground cumin
1 cup frozen sweet corn
1/4 t chili powder
14 ounce can refried black beans
1/3 cup minced fresh cilantro
1 T thinly sliced red onion
guacamole, for serving
For cheese sauce:
1 T oil
1/2 t minced garlic
1 T flour
1/3 cup shredded mild white cheese
Prepare sweet potato: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Wash and cut sweet potato into wedges. On a baking sheet, toss sweet potato with half of the oil and all of the ground cumin. Roast for about 30 minutes, tossing every 15 minutes until sweet potato wedges are cooked through and tender.
While the sweet potato is roasting, heat remaining oil in a small skillet. Add corn and chili pepper to skillet and salute corn until it just begins to caramelize and has golden brown areas.
When sweet potatoes are done, make cheese sauce. In a sauce pan heat remaining oil. Add garlic and cook for half a minute until fragrant. Add flour to pan and whisk until incorporated into oil. While continuing to whisk, slowly add milk to saucepan. Continue to stir until sauce is thickened and just beginning to simmer. Remove from heat. Add cheese and whisk until cheese is melted and incorporated into sauce.
Assemble nachos: Layer Way Better Snacks Simply Sweeet Potato Chips on a serving platter. Warm the refried black beans, then top chips with beans. Top with roasted sweet potatoes and corn. Drizzle with cheese sauce. Sprinkle with cilantro and red onion. Serve with guacamole.
