eats // paleo nachos

Whether you're into the super bowl or just in it for the commercials, it's always a fun excuses to chow down on some comfort food.  One of my favorites are these paleo nachos. The sweet potato chips give the dish a slight sweetness you just can't find in regular chips & tastes oh so good with the salty and citrus flavors from the chicken and guacamole.  It's always a winner in our house, just make sure to cook extra chips they go fast ;).
