Last weekend, I made a huge batch of my sweet potato dark chocolate mousse to feed a hungry crowd. All the skins had to be removed to achieve the right consistency and since I’m someone who can’t stand the thought of throwing away nutritious food, I saved all of them. The potato skins filled my already too-full refrigerator. I had to think of a creative recipe quick. And then it occurred to me. I could turn all those lovely peelings into chips!

I honestly do not remember the last time I had nachos. They’re always covered in cheese, which I can’t eat and let’s face it, the cheese is the best part. Recently I found a dairy-free cheese dip recipe begging to be made and I thought no better way to enjoy chips than as nachos. The dairy-free cheddar cheese dip was created by Jane of Jane’s Healthy Kitchen and it’s the best dairy-free, nut-free cheese I’ve ever made. Non-dairy cheese is all about the consistency and she nailed.

Once the chips are baked, you can layer any of your favorite toppings on these. Get creative and have fun with it!
