  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes about 6 servings
  • 2 medium to large sweet potatoes, sliced into thin chips (use a mandolin slicer or cut by hand into ⅛- to ¼-inch-thick rounds)
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained
  • ½ cup corn, fresh or frozen
  • 2 ounces pulled chicken (shred any cooked or leftover rotisserie chicken, without the skin)
  • ½ cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • ¾ cup 2 percent reduced-fat, shredded Mexican blend cheese
  • ¼ cup salsa
  • ¼ cup nonfat Greek yogurt or light sour cream
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped scallions



Preheat oven to 425˚. Liberally coat a baking sheet(s) with olive oil spray and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, add sweet potato “chips” and olive oil and stir until all pieces are somewhat coated in oil (use your hands to mix, if necessary). Place on baking sheet(s) in a single layer, lightly mist tops with additional oil spray and evenly sprinkle on salt, garlic and paprika.

Bake in oven for 20 to 40 minutes on top rack, flipping halfway through. (Oven times will vary, depending upon sweet potato thickness, so watch closely to ensure they crisp up but do not burn.) Remove sweet potato rounds from oven and transfer to large skillet or oven-safe dish, allowing the edges to slightly overlap.

Sprinkle black beans, corn, chicken, tomatoes and chicken over the tops. Next add cheese and place back in the oven for a few minutes until the cheese is hot and melted. Remove from oven and garnish with salsa, Greek yogurt or sour cream, avocado, and scallions. Add any preferred additional toppings like minced cilantro, jalapeños or lime juice.
