Fall has officially arrived and you know what that means! Yes – it is pumpkin season.

Who doesn’t love when a heaping plate of nachos is delivered to the table? That melty cheese and the blend of beans, tomatoes, and corn make your mouth water the second you set your eyes on it!

Fortunately, we have a solution to allow you to enjoy scrumptious nachos, but without the extra calories and guilt. We have swapped tortilla chips for nutritious sweet potatoes. Yep – sweet potatoes. You might not think this switch would taste as good, but once you try this smart swap, you will be blown away!
