Happy virtual shower Stefanie!
I made these fun Southwestern Sweet Potato Rounds for my fellow Chicago food blogger friend Stefanie from Sarcastic Cooking and the upcoming arrival of her baby boy. I am so excited for her! I have a son myself and know firsthand the joy little boys bring to a Mom’s life. Boys have so much energy for life, for learning and for playing. It keeps us Moms on our toes and keeps things interesting on a daily basis. I know she is going to just love joining the club!
If crazy, energetic little boys don’t keep you on your toes these Southwestern Sweet Potato Rounds sure will. They have a little bit of kick to them and offer that sweet, savory combination that many people love. I almost think of these as similar to nachos but on a little individual sweet potato chip and topped with your favorite Southwestern toppings. The great thing about this recipe is it can really be adapted to you and your guests tastes.
I used a spicy black bean mixture and then topped it off with a little sour cream, cilantro and pepper jack/cheddar cheese mixture. My husband hates sour cream so for him he got a modified version with no sour cream on it. I love being able to make all the mouths at the table happy!
Stefanie and I are fellow Chicagoans so I am hoping that a couple of months after the baby is born I can stop over and meet the little guy (and of course bring her some yummy food—that’s what food bloggers friends are for, right?). Stefanie is going to be a great Mom and I can’t wait to hear about her funny, exciting adventures in motherhood!
