  • 1
    Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray two baking dishes with cooking spray or line with parchment paper.
  • 2
    Wash the sweet potato. Use a brush if you can.
  • 3
    Use a mandolin to cut the sweet potato into very thin slices. Otherwise, use a very sharp knife to create very thin slices.
  • 4
    Place the slices on the baking dish. Try not to stack them on each other.
  • 5
    Use a small brush to cover the slices with olive oil or coconut oil. Sprinkle with salt to taste and bake for 8 minutes. Remove and flip. Bake for 5 more minutes. They're ready when the borders are red. Repeat the process with the rest of the sweet potato slices.
  • 6
    In the meantime, start washing and preparing the other ingredients. Add them to a deep bowl and mix in a folding motion with a wooden spoon.
  • 7
    Mix the vinegar, oil, salt, garlic, cumin, pepper and mayo in a small, deep bowl. Add a few drops of hot sauce, if you'd like.
  • 8
    Place the vinaigrette over the picadillo and mix well.
  • 9
    Add the sweet potato nachos to a dish, use a spoon to add part of the picadillo with parsley on top and leave the rest on the side with a spoon. Serve with Mexican cream or sour cream.
  • The thinner they are and the more time in the oven, the crispier they'll be.

Expert Tips

  • You can add coconut oil or olive oil, rosemary or other herbs (fresh), so that when you bake the nachos will absorb the flavor.
  • Coconut oil highlights the sweet flavor of the sweet potato.
  • You should be careful with the salt in the vinegar, remember that the sweet potatoes are baked with a little bit of salt too.
