Here’s a different spin on classic nachos!  Using sweet potato instead of meat makes this really filling and satisfying.  The whole family will tuck into these and be wanting more!

We like to find an organic corn chip, which you can get from all supermarkets.  There are a few brands of corn chips around which are totally additive free, but they’ll be the plain flavour.  As soon as you start getting into cheese and BBQ flavour you’ll run into MSG for sure.
