Why I Love This Recipe

Sweet potato fries are everyone’s favorite healthy side dish because they taste great and are secretly good for you even though it seems like you’re eating something naughty. Loaded sweet potato fries take all that goodness a step or two farther! Our version is somewhat of a combination between chili fries, nachos and a loaded baked potato. Yes, we can hear your mouth watering from here. A creative twist for Taco Tuesday, a healthy after-school snack or a hearty side dish—our recipe makes just enough for two hungry folks to share. You can easily double or triple the amounts to meet your needs.

If you’re not a sweet potato fry convert yet, maybe a few nutritional facts will help bring you over to the orange side. Sweet potatoes have fewer calories than white potatoes even though they contain more sugar. They’re high in lots of vitamins, such as A, B5 and B6. In fact, one serving of sweet potato provides an entire day’s worth of vitamin A which is an important antioxidant linked to cancer prevention and anti-aging.

Ingredients You'll Need

3/4 cup crumbled Queso Quesadilla Cheese
1/2 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
1 tablespoon finely chopped cilantro

3/4 cup diced red or orange bell pepper
1/4 cup ripe avocado, diced
1/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack or Pepper Jack if you like an extra hot kick

3. Combine the remaining ingredients in a small bowl.

4. Remove fries from the oven and transfer them to a plate.
