Syn Free Slimming World Sweet Potato Nachos!


The one thing I hate about being healthy is not being able to eat all the awful junk food I love so so so much. When I joined SW I knew I had to figure out an alternative for fatty Mexican food, in particular, NACHOS

I got to work trying loads of different variations - and I absolutely LOVE these nachos! They use your healthy extra A choice of cheese, so they are completely syn free! If you want to, add the guacamole (like I have) for just 3.5 syns! 


Homemade salsa and guacamole are always better than the shop bought stuff, but if you really can't swap your sour cream for yogurt, you can use the reduced fat version. Just remember to syn it for 1 syn per table spoon!


To make the meal more time-efficient, you can make batches of the salsa and guacamole, and precut the sweet potato. Then it literally takes minutes to make!

I hope you enjoy the recipe, and please send me or tag me in your pictures if you do make it! :)
