Toss them in 1 tablespoon of olive oil to make sure they are coated. Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper, and line the sweet potato chips up without touching each other.

Drain grease, add 1/4 cup of water, 1/2 tablespoon of equal parts chili powder and oregano, 1 teaspoon of garlic powder, and 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes. Let simmer until chips are cooked. Warm black beans in microwave or stovetop.On a plate, put sweet potato chips as the bottom layer, cover with a spoonful of ground turkey and a spoonful of black beans (drained).
