Serves: 4 – 6  

Preparation time: 15 minutes 

Cooking time: 25 minutes 

Difficulty: Easy

Course: Main 

Cuisine:  Mexican 

1 large sweet potato, very thinly sliced using a mandoline

3–4 tablespoons coconut oil, melted

sea salt

Spicy Mexican beef

2 tablespoons coconut oil or other good-quality fat

1 onion, finely chopped

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

1 long red chilli, deseeded and chopped

500 g beef mince

1 teaspoon smoked paprika

1 teaspoon ground cumin

½ teaspoon ground coriander

1 ½ tablespoons tomato paste

1 x 400 g can diced tomatoes

freshly ground black pepper

Tomato salsa

2 tomatoes, deseeded and diced

½ red onion, finely diced

2 tablespoons chopped coriander leaves, plus extra coriander

leaves to serve

2 tablespoons lime juice

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil


1 ripe avocado, mashed or diced

1 garlic clove, finely diced

1 tablespoon lime juice

½ teaspoon chilli flakes (optional)

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Line two large baking trays with baking paper.

Place the sweet potato in a bowl and drizzle over the coconut oil.

Toss to coat, then spread the sweet potato onto the trays in a single layer. Bake for 5 minutes, then flip the sweet potato over and return to the oven for about 2 minutes, or until golden and crispy. Season with salt.

To make the spicy Mexican beef, heat the oil or fat in a frying pan over medium–high heat. Add the onion and cook for 5 minutes until translucent. Stir in the garlic and chilli and cook for 1 minute until fragrant. Add the beef and cook, stirring with a wooden spoon to break up any lumps, for 5 minutes until browned. Add the spices and tomato paste and cook for 1 minute, then mix in the tomatoes.

Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10–12 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

To make the tomato salsa, place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix. Season with salt and pepper.

To make the guacamole, place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Season with salt and pepper.

To assemble the nachos, place the sweet potato chips on a platter or on serving plates, then top with the spicy beef, salsa and guacamole. Garnish with the extra coriander leaves and serve with some cashew cheese, if you like.
