Vegan Loaded Nachos

Hi Friends! I’ve been on a bit of a blogging hiatus as my year has been busy so far, but I have some new recipes to share. Before we get to the recipe, I wanted to say that I have happily been volunteering quite a bit at a local no-kill animal shelter. If you have the time, consider finding a no-kill shelter near you where you can volunteer. It’s been really rewarding interacting with the animals and giving them a chance to get outside and play while they wait to be adopted. The hardest part is not taking them all home with you! This guy in particular was nearly impossible not to take home, but I can’t really have a dog right now. Luckily he got adopted by a nice family. So many of the pups are just so loving and sweet!

On to the recipe…I guess this isn’t as much of a recipe as a recreation of vegan nachos that I used to get at Rutherford Pancake House in Rutherford, NJ. When I lived in North Jersey this was my favorite brunch spot and we almost always got the nachos. Now that I live too far away, I make my own vegan nachos at home. These are perfect for sharing at a party or enjoying while binge watching Netflix. And when football season comes around again, you won’t have to feel left out at football parties! These are really dangerously yummy. If you have a favorite vegan nacho topping, let me know in the comments! I would love to get some new ideas to try.

As messy as nachos are, it's hard to make them look pretty when you pile on the chili, guacamole, vegan sour cream and more, but they are so yummy it doesn't matter! They will disappear quickly!

Ingredients:

Tortilla chips
Daiya vegan cheese
1 can of vegan chili (I used Amy’s brand)
Guacamole
Salsa
Tofutti Vegan Sour Cream
Lettuce

Other Optional Toppings:

Corn
Tomatoes
Jalapeños
Refried Beans
Black Beans or Kidney Beans
Sautéed or Grilled Pepper and Onions
Veggie Bacon
Chopped Cilantro
Scallions
Lime Juice
Black Olives

Directions:

  • Preheat the oven to 350°.
  • Fill a glass baking dish 2/3 full with tortilla chips. Sprinkle on a little Daiya cheese. Add the can of vegan chili on top. If you have leftover homemade chili, this is a great way to use it up.
  • Bake the nachos in the oven for about 15 minutes so the chili is hot and the cheese is melted.
  • Remove the nachos from the oven and top with guacamole, salsa, vegan sour cream, lettuce and any other toppings you like.
  • Dig in and enjoy!
