  1. 3 medium sweet potatoes (about 2 pounds), makes about 6 cups 
of rounds
  2. 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  3. 1 tsp. chili powder
  4. 1 tsp. garlic powder
  5. 1 1/2 tsp. paprika
  6. 1/3 cup black beans, drained, rinsed

  8. 1/3 cup chopped tomato (1 plum tomato) OR
  9. 1/3 cup no-salt-added, canned, diced tomatoes, drained, rinsed
  10. 1/3 cup chopped avocado
  1. • Preheat the oven to 425°F. Cover the baking pans with foil and coat with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. • Peel and slice the sweet potatoes thinly (about quarter-inch rounds). In a bowl, toss the rounds with olive oil, chili powder, garlic powder and paprika. Spread evenly on prepared pan (might need two pans). Bake for 10 minutes and use a spatula to flip the sweet potato rounds. Bake for another 5-10 minutes or until crisp.
  3. • Remove the pan from the oven and sprinkle beans and cheese over the sweet potatoes. Return to oven until cheese melts, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle with tomato and avocado. Serve.
