I also used my 5 minute Refried Beans for this recipe because they are just so darn tasty and so easy to make.

While the sweet potatoes are roasting, you will make the refried beans and the cheese sauce.

I’ve never made cheese sauce for nachos before this and I’m not sure why!

Even Crosby loved the pieces of sweet potato that he ate covered in cheese!

At one point he was licking queso from a bowl. Now that’s the right way to live!

  5. While sweet potatoes are cooking, make one batch of 5 Minute Refried Beans and set aside
  6. Next, heat a sauce pan on medium heat and make one batch of 5 Minute Nacho Cheese Sauce
  7. Whisk until thick and creamy (around 5 minutes or less)

The sweet potatoes will blacken on the edges (this is good!), but we want to make sure that they aren't smoking/burning. This will depend on your oven how quickly they cook. You want them to be blackened and soft throughout, but not burnt
