Recipe Tip!  Add a TBLSP of EVOO to baking sheet under parchment paper to keep paper stable.

STEP 1 (Nachos)

  • Preheat Oven to 425°F 
  • Spread 1 TBSP EVOO on baking sheet & line with a sheet of parchment paper (the oil helps keep paper stationary) 
  • Slice Sweet Potatoes into rounds about 1/8 – 1/4” thick (varying thicknesses yield more interesting texture) 
  • Drizzle Sweet Potatoes with 1 – 2 TBSP EVOO 
  • Arrange Sweet Potatoes on baking sheet with as little layering as possible so all rounds will get some toasty spots 
  • Sprinkle lightly with freshly ground Salt & Pepper 
  • Place in Oven for 23 – 25 Minutes (check at 23 minutes & bake longer if more crunch is your preference.)

STEP 2 (Salsa)

  • Dice Onion 
  • Remove pulp, pith & seeds of Tomato & Bell Pepper then dice 
  • Halve Avocado, remove pit, gently score flesh vertically & horizontally so it can be scooped out with a spoon into cubes

  • Juice Lime 
  • Combine all & add 1 TBSP Maya Mike Belizean Barbacoa (Medium “Yellow” Label) if you & your guests like it hot!  
  • Add salt & pepper to taste then set aside 

STEP 3 (Barbacoa Beans)

  • Rinse & Drain Black Beans thoroughly so they are slightly dry then transfer to a small skillet or sauce pan 
  • Mash half the Beans with a fork 
  • Stir in Cumin & 3 TBSP Maya Mike Belizean Barbacoa (Original “White” Label)
  • Heat over medium stirring occasionally until most liquid is absorbed (about 5 – 7 minutes) 

STEP 4 (Smoky Crema Sauce)

  • Scoop 1/3 Sour Cream (or alternate) into bowl
  • Combine with 2 TBSP Maya Mike Belizean Barbacoa (Smoked “Red” Label)
  • Add salt & pepper to taste
