- 1 medium sweet potato (sliced into 1/8-inch-thick chips)
- 1½ cup frozen pepper-and-onion blend (partially thawed and drained)
- 1 jalapeño pepper (split lengthwise and seeded)
- ¼ cup reduced-fat shredded cheddar or Mexican-style cheese
- ¼ cup salsa
- 4 julienned or thinly sliced radishes
- 2/3 cup cherry tomatoes
- ½ cup shredded romaine lettuce
- 2 tbsp light sour cream 1 tbsp minced fresh cilantro
- nonstick cooking spray
Place sweet potato slices evenly in the air fryer basket. Spray with nonstick cooking spray for 1 second.
Spoon the frozen vegetables evenly over the potatoes. Place the jalapeño on top of the vegetables, skin side up. Spray with nonstick cooking spray for 1 second.
Set air fryer to 375° F and cook for 20 minutes, or until potatoes are done. (They should be tender but crisp, not soft.)
In a second medium bowl, whisk in onions, egg substitute, milk, mustard, salt and pepper.
Sprinkle cheese evenly over vegetables. Air fry for 2 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
Using the tip of a sharp knife, remove the browned or charred skin from the jalapeño pepper. Then finely chop pepper.
Using a spatula, lift potatoes and vegetables out of the air fryer basket. Arrange in an even layer on a serving platter.
Sprinkle the chopped jalapeño over the vegetables.
Top with salsa, radishes, tomatoes, and lettuce.
Add a dollop of sour cream and sprinkle of cilantro. Serve right away.
In a medium bowl, separate spinach into small pieces. Toss in roasted peppers and green onions.
