Healthy Plant-Based Nachos are the ultimate! They will satisfy your snack food craving without leaving you looking for a pillow and a blanket.
I have been receiving a lot of requests for easy-and-delicious-but-still-healthy snacks or “party” food. I figured that one week before the Superbowl would be a great time to debut this recipe. These nachos taste just like the decadent dish placed before you in your favorite Mexican restaurant. I used Daiya cheddar and pepperjack vegan cheeses, as they totally get how to make a chewy, stringy cheese that melts and tastes like a dairy-based cheese (and this is not a sponsored post!) I replaced the corn chips with Plentils (Enjoy Life’s brand for a lentil chip. . . and this is still not a sponsored post!) I like using the lentil chips because they bring a little more protein to the table than corn chips, plus the lentil chips contain no saturated fat. Add in the black beans for another heavy hit of protein and all of the veggies for, well . . . all that veggies bring: vitamins A and C, iron, phytonutrients, and the list goes on! All of these pluses combined with a lack of dairy and gluten make both your palate and your body very happy! An added benefit to this dish is that it is so easy to prepare it can be done any time for any occasion. I made this as an afternoon snack yesterday just because it sounded so good, and I knew it would be done in under 30 minutes. Don’t wait for the Superbowl for this one. Enjoy it now!!
Customize these nachos to your special preferences. If you like it spicier, add more jalapeno. If you prefer a milder option, omit the jalapeno. If you like them to blow your mind, add a Habanero. If you like it cheesy, add more vegan cheese. Add corn, avocado, cilantro, scallions! It’s so flexible you can always change it based on the mood of the day. Now that’s my kind of recipe! Enjoy!!
