Being a Texas girl there is nothing I love more in life then Tex-Mex. I am not kidding! Ask anyone from Texas about their favorite part of living there is, well actually maybe don’t…. we will provide you with a long-long list of things! Along with HEB and Whataburger and drinking a beer down the river, Tex-Mex will be one of the first things out of their mouth. Sadly enough nothing will ever be as amazing as Nachos from the lone star state. But being that I, Haylee, am from the wonderful, rodeo loving, tumble weed turning, armadillo roaming country of Texas, I figured mine are pretty top-notch. They may not be oozing cheese and scoop-able with a tortilla chip, but they are delicious and Paleo friendly!
Using a mandala cutter, slice your sweet potatoes into thin chips.
Add to a bowl, massage with some olive oil, salt and pepper.
Spread slices out along a baking sheet and bake in oven until sides start to curl up. Take them out and flip all the chips over. Return to oven until crisp. (Note: they might seem slightly soft but keep in mind when you remove them from heat to cool off they will crisp up some more.)
As your chips are baking, cut your chicken into pieces slightly smaller than bite size. you want to be able to get them and more onto your chip.
Add chicken to skillet along with a tiny splash of oil, juice from half of the lime, cumin, salt and pepper.
While your chicken and chips are cooking start cutting up your peppers and onions.
Add your cut up veggies to your chicken skillet and let the flavors mingle together.
In a small pot over medium heat add your beans.
Slice open your avocado and scoop into a bowl. Mash it down with a fork until smooth. Squeeze in other half of your lime and add in some salt. Give it all a good mix.
To plate your want to start at the bottom with your chips. Next add your layer of chicken and pepper with onions. Then your beans and some cilantro. Top it off with your Guacamole and ENJOY!

I like my coffee black, my wine red and my steaks seared to a crisp.
I've never met a cat I didn't want to take home and I've never turned down anything wrapped in bacon.
I make awkward small talk and I'm terrible at spelling but I can make a mean bowl of guacamole.
