  • 1 tsp paprika
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste

Corn Dip

  • 3 cups corn kernels tinned, drained & rinsed
  • 4 tsp greek yoghurt
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 2 tbsp coriander fresh, chopped

  • 4 tbsp coriander fresh, roughly chopped


Nachos base

  • Preheat oven to 200ºC
  • Line a large flat oven tray with baking paper
  • Evenly brush, spray or rub oil onto each sweet potato disc (both sides). Sprinkle with paprika, salt and pepper.
  • Place on a lined tray and bake until crisp for 8-12 minutes, depending on how thin they have been sliced.

Corn dip

  • Blend half the corn kernels in a food processor with lime, coriander and greek yoghurt.
  • Transfer the blended corn dip into a small bowl and then mix the remaining corn kernels and red capsicum through to add some texture.

Black bean mix

  • In a small bowl, add the black beans, cumin, lime juice, olive oil and stir together. Add salt & pepper to taste, then set aside.

Time to plate up

  • Lay the crispy sweet potato discs on a serving plate.
  • Spoon all of the black bean mix and some of the corn dip over the discs.
  • Gently layer the slices of avocado and chopped coriander leaves on top of the beans, and place the remaining corn dip in a small bowl on the side.
  • Garnish with lime wedges on the side and serve immediately, while the sweet potato is still hot.
