Best Nacho's Ever!

9:05 pm

Anyone who knows me, knows that I love Nachos. They're so easy to make, and always enjoyable..

I'd have them the same way every time. 1 bag of Dorito's, 1 small tub sour cream, jar of salsa and almost using the entire packet of grated cheese. Then I'd sit and eat the entire thing. I recently just found out, that while I had been immensely enjoying my gigantic bowl of Nachos, my mum who was also sitting in the living room, watching me eat.. was annoyed that I never offered her any.. Ooops!!

When I made these, she was the first person I called to say how amazing they were, and to offer to make them for her when she stays next. We have a deal, and I am now forgiven!

So, why are they the best? They just are. They really are!!

As I'm doing my healthier eating, and have gone meat free, I was in search for a new way to eat them without feeling like a slob afterwards. I was going to give no cheese and sour cream a try! I didn't think it was going to be possible, as if they'd taste any good.. no cheese? yeah right, how can you have Nacho's without cheese!! 

Then I came across this recipe, and I knew I wasn't going to share these ones either.

minimalistbaker has definitely created something amazing!!

5 cups of Style Tortilla Chips { I used a 156g bag of SunRice Brown rice chips, in parmesan & sundried tomato, and a 156g packet of sea salt }
3/4 cup Cashew-less Vegan Queso { also, found on minimalistbaker }
425g of cooked Old El Paso Black Beans                    
1/3 cup Guacamole { 1 ripe avocado + 1/4 tsp sea salt + 1 lime, juiced }
1/2 – 3/4 cup Chunky Salsa
Olives and Red Onion, sliced { optional }
Hot Sauce { optional }
200g Spinach and Garden vegetable dip { free from dairy, found at Woolworths }
1/2 cup of Greek yoghurt
spring onions for garnish

✚  Prepare the Vegan Queso first, this will take the most time to do.
✚  Once your Queso is ready and hot. Heat up the black beans in a small saucepan, season with a little sea salt.
✚  Next, add the Guacamole and Dip together, giving a good mash and stir.
✚  In a large bowl, arrange chips and add toppings as desired. I used the Queso first, then black beans, salsa, dip, scatter with red onions and olives, then Greek yoghurt and spring onions.
