Ingredients
  • Canola oil, for frying
  • 2 large sweet potatoes, thinly sliced on a mandoline
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 3 chipotles, minced
  • 1 1/2 cups, favorite BBQ sauce, plus some for drizzling
  • 2 cups grated smoked Gouda
  • 3 red jalapenos, sliced
  • 1 bunch scallions, sliced
Directions

Preheat the oven to broil. Preheat a deep-fryer or heavy-bottomed pot, with enough canola oil to come halfway up the sides of the pot, to 325 degrees F.

Working in batches, deep-fry the sweet potatoes until crisp, about 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from fryer to a paper towel lined platter and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Set aside.

Add the grapeseed oil to a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Add meat and brown it until almost cooked through, about for 3 to 4 minutes. Add the onion and garlic and cook until softened, about 2 to 3 minutes. Add the tomato paste, chipotles, and salt and pepper, to taste. Stir several times to incorporate. Add the BBQ sauce, bring to a simmer and cook for an additional 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from the heat.

To assemble nachos:

Using 2 oven-proof platters, lay some sweet potato chips on each platter. Top the potatoes with some meat, cheese, and jalapenos. Repeat the layers with the remaining ingredients, except for a handful of jalapenos. Broil until the cheese melts, about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove the platters from the broiler and top them with the remaining jalapenos, a drizzle of BBQ sauce and the scallions. Serve.
