Sweet Potato Nachos

I first ate sweet potato nachos in a local cafe and I was hooked.  This is my version of sweet potato nachos, it is dairy free and gluten free and so delicious. There are a few bits to this recipe, to save time I usually cut up the sweet potatoes the night before. I like to keep the skin on, it gives the potatoes a crispier texture.

I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
