Sweet Potato Nachos

nacho1

We made the yummiest snack last night while stuck inside because of the storm, so I thought I would share it with you all today! There are lots of different recipes for Sweet Potato Nachos online, but I just kind of used a little of each to come up with ours! The only problem was that we didn’t make enough, they were super tasty and didn’t last very long. Hope you guys give this a try! It’s a nice alternative for nacho night! Enjoy!

Ingredients

2 large sweet potatoes (or several baby sweet potatoes)
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. garlic powder
pinch of cayenne pepper
salt and pepper, to taste
1 cup shredded cheese (we used Craft’s TexMex)
1/2 green bell pepper
1 cooked chicken breast
sour cream & salsa for dipping

Directions:
1) Preheat oven to 425F and lightly spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.

2) Wash and dry your sweet potatoes, then use a vegetable peeler to peel them. Slice them into 1/4 inch rounds and place in a large bowl. Drizzle with olive oil, using your hands to ensure that each round is evenly coated. Season with garlic powder, cayenne paper, salt and pepper, tossing well.

3) Place rounds in a single layer on your baking sheet. Bake for 40 minutes, turning them over halfway through to ensure they don’t burn.

4) Remove from oven and push the potatoes together, allowing the edges to slightly overlap. Top with green pepper, chicken and cheese before returning to the oven for an additional 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted.

5) Remove from oven and serve with sour cream and salsa.

For me, the time between January and the first of Spring are always kind of difficult for my wardrobe. We are just coming out of Christmas where everything was black, gold and shiny, and we aren’t quite into Spring to start pulling out our bright colors. If you are like me and are feeling ‘stuck’, consider trying blues! I know when you think about blue it sounds like the most basic, boring color of them all – but it actually can act as a color to get you through the winter months. Looks for different prints and textures to keep things interesting, and don’t forget about chambray! This could be the freshness you are looking for without digging out your summer clothes from the basement. I hope you all are having a great week, and let me know in the comments what colors you gravitate towards during this time of year!

Navy Puffer Jacket

Have I ever mentioned how much I love Winners? If you have never been a Winners fan before, this post may convince you to stop in. I picked up this Vero Moda navy winter jacket for… get this… $24.99!! I didn’t even really need another winter jacket, but for $25 I couldn’t just leave it on the rack. Not to mention shopping for coats is definitely my guilty pleasure and most favorite thing to shop for. I don’t know why but I just love jackets! Anyways, if this post doesn’t do anything else but encourage you to go to Winners this week, then my job here is done. Thanks for stopping by!

Faux Fur

This outfit is all about layering with warm tones! I picked up this faux fur vest from Target and have been getting tons of use out of it! That is probably because it has been -30c all week and to me that is a good enough reason to wear as many layers as possible. If you are on the fence about whether or not you should get a faux fur vest, I would definitely recommend having one in your wardrobe! It is so much more versatile that I thought it was going to be! Anyways, I hope you are staying warm and that you all have a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by!
