Mexican Loaded Sweet Potato

Hey friends!

Your entries in the popchips giveaway made me want to try all different kinds of chips! Thanks a lot. 😉

But that’s okay, I love me some chips.

Speaking of, the other day at Jared’s parents’ house, I loaded my chicken burger plate with ’em.

No shame. So delicious!

Mexican Loaded Sweet Potato

I got the idea off of a Biggest Loser episode, but sort of did my own thing.

So easy, so delicious!
