Sweet Potato Nachos
I thought you might enjoy this recipe from Food Network's In the Kitchen App. Loaded Sweet Potato Nachos http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/aaron-mccargo-jr/loaded-sweet-potato-nachos-recipe.html Canola oil, for frying 2 large sweet potatoes, thinly sliced on a mandoline Salt and freshly ground black pepper 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil 1 1/2 pounds ground beef 1 onion, diced 1 tablespoon minced garlic 1 tablespoon tomato paste 3 chipotles, minced 1 1/2 cups, favorite BBQ sauce, plus some for drizzling 2 cups grated smoked Gouda 3 red jalapenos, sliced 1 bunch scallions, sliced Preheat the oven to broil. Preheat a deep-fryer or heavy-bottomed pot, with enough canola oil to come halfway up the sides of the pot, to 325 degrees F. Working in batches, deep-fry the sweet potatoes until crisp, about 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from fryer to a paper towel lined platter and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Set aside. Add the grapeseed oil to a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Add meat and brown it until almost cooked through, about for 3 to 4 minutes. Add the onion and garlic and cook until softened, about 2 to 3 minutes. Add the tomato paste, chipotles, and salt and pepper, to taste. Stir several times to incorporate. Add the BBQ sauce, bring to a simmer and cook for an additional 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from the heat. To assemble nachos: Using 2 oven-proof platters, lay some sweet potato chips on each platter. Top the potatoes with some meat, cheese, and jalapenos. Repeat the layers with the remaining ingredients, except for a handful of jalapenos. Broil until the cheese melts, about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove the platters from the broiler and top them with the remaining jalapenos, a drizzle of BBQ sauce and the scallions. Serve.
