This is amazing! The sweet potato adds nutrition and a rich creaminess, as well as cutting the fat in half.
Try some vegan nachos : layer tortilla chips with black beans, (or veggie crumbles) salsa and minced jalapenos; top with the creamy cheese sauce; broil on low 5-7 minutes, until heated through and bubbley and viola!! A delicious, quick healthy snack.
