Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Spread sweet potato tots in a single layer in a large cast-iron skillet. Bake, stirring once, until crisp, about 30 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, combine tomato, jalapeño, lime juice, cilantro and salt in a medium bowl. Combine sour cream, water and chili powder in a small bowl. Set both mixtures aside.

  • Push the tots to the center of the pan. Top with beans and cheese and return to the oven. Bake until the cheese is melted, 2 to 3 minutes more. Using a slotted spoon, spread the reserved tomato mixture over the top. Top with avocado and lettuce. Drizzle the reserved sour cream mixture over the top and garnish with cilantro, if desired.
