Healthy nachos help you LiveBest

Sharing food feeds your soul. When you eat with others you connect and laugh and learn. All those things add up to make us feel better. Nachos are a perfectly shareable meal.

What I like best about this recipe is that nachos are fun and people love them. Have you tried  Apple Nachos?

Sweet Potato Nachos are also quick to fix, easy clean up, and economical.

How to cut sweet potato

Scrub the potatoes. Slice (with skin on) the potatoes evenly, about 1/4-inch thick, so they cook evenly and give you enough body to pop all those luscious toppings into your mouth. To keep your cutting board from slipping as you slice, place a kitchen towel under it or use one with rubber grips such as this Oxo cutting board. I use cutting boards you can put in the dishwasher. Cleanliness is a good thing!
