If you need a festive dish to go with your margaritas for Cinco de Mayo on Friday, you’re in luck! These Fiesta Nachos are so vibrant and delicious. They are a sure bet to satisfy your guests without the usual crash from traditional nachos. You can use less cheese with this recipe because all of the added flavor from the sweet potato chips, peppers, onion, and cilantro. And the beans add protein while also upping the fiber content.
