There are plenty of veggies and toppings in this recipe to boost nachos into a justifiable meal.

 1 sweet potato, shredded or cut into thin matchsticks
 2 tbsp (30 mL) canola oil
 1⁄2 tsp (2 mL) salt
 1⁄2 tsp (2 mL) garlic powder
 1⁄2 tsp (2 mL) smoked paprika
 12 oz (375 g) boneless fast-fry beef steaks
 3 green onions, sliced
 1 cup (250 mL) cooked or drained rinsed canned black beans
 1 cup (250 mL) corn kernels (thawed if frozen)
 1⁄4 cup (50 mL) barbecue sauce
 1 bag (10 oz/270 g) tortilla chips
 2 cups (500 mL) shredded mozzarella cheese
 1 cup (250 mL) shredded cheddar cheese
 2 plum (Roma) tomatoes, chopped
 1⁄2 cup (125 mL) sliced pitted drained black olives
 1⁄2 cup (250 mL) chopped fresh cilantro
 3 cups (750 mL) shredded lettuce
 Salsa, sour cream, guacamole, sliced pickled jalapeños

Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Place sweet potato on a foil-lined large baking sheet and drizzle with oil, tossing to coat evenly. Spread in a single layer and sprinkle with salt, garlic powder and paprika. Bake for 20 minutes, stirring once, until tender-crisp.


Meanwhile, heat a lightly oiled nonstick pan over medium-high heat. In batches, cook steaks for 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a cutting board, let cool slightly, then cut into bite-size pieces. Place beef in a medium bowl and add green onions, beans, corn and barbecue sauce, tossing to coat; set aside.


Spread half the tortilla chips in a single layer on top of sweet potatoes. Top with half the beef mixture, then half each of the mozzarella and Cheddar. Repeat layers of chips, beef and cheeses. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melted. Serve immediately, topped with tomatoes, olives, cilantro and shredded lettuce. Serve salsa, sour cream, guacamole and jalapeños on the side, as desired.


Tip: Use your food processor to shred the sweet potatoes, for speedier prep.
