Who doesn't like nachos? Pile all the ingredients on some corn chips and they become magic in your mouth (but destroy your gut). Need a healthier nacho? Try swapping the corn chips for a heartier, lower glycemic, higher fiber veggie. Then use a stable saturated fat and add protein-rich collagen to the guacamole. Bam! Better nutritional profile, better calorie count, and maybe (just maybe) even more delicious.
*Optional HEAT 1-2 Jalapeños, diced (see video below
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Slice sweet potatoes about ⅛ -¼ inch thick (Use a mandolin for even slices if you have one, see video below).
Lay sweet potato slices evenly across a parchment-paper-covered baking sheet.
Spray with Avocado, Olive, or Coconut cooking spray, sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Roast in oven for 20 minutes.
Remove from oven, flip slices with a fork or tongs, put back in oven for 10-20 minutes. (I recommend checking ever 5 min after the initial 10.)
Remove, parchment paper off baking sheet to prevent over cooking, and set on kitchen counter to cool.
While sweet potatoes are cooking, add avocado and lime juice in a bowl.
Using a fork, mash the flesh of the avocado into the side of the bowl.
Add Collagen, stir until fully incorporated, then stir in all other ingredients.
Make it a Meal
Transfer sweet potatoes to serving dish. Using a large spoon or ice cream scoop add a large dollop of guac atop each slice.
Sprinkle a few extra pomegranate seeds for color, sprinkle with a dash of finishing salt and voila!
It wasn’t too long ago that I had no idea how to cut or remove the insides of an avocado without squishing the insides. If you’ve not done it before, it’s WAY easier than you might think (see video below)
If the texture of cottage cheese skeeves you out, simply put it in a blender and blend for a few seconds until a creamy consistency.
If the ‘idea’ of cottage cheese skeeves you out, then add 1 more avocado and remove the cottage cheese altogether. BUT, if you CAN stomach it I’d recommend trying it with it first! It lowers the caloric content and carbs while beefing up the portion size without messing with the flavor!
