One of my favorite bar foods used to be a platter of loaded nachos. However, since now going out to a bar is a much more rare occasion (kids) and a plate of loaded nachos out is even more rare (vegan) I needed another way to get my salty, spicy, snack kick. Enter loaded vegan nachos! While the jalapeños are technically optional, I can’t imagine nachos without them!
Easy Vegan Nachos
About 2 cups of tortilla chips, spread out on a plate
1/3 cup of canned, vegetarian, black refried beans (I use Whole Foods brand)
2 TB canned, sliced jalapeño
1/4 cup sliced black olives
3 TB prepared salsa
1/2 an avocado, chopped
Vegan cheddar cheese (optional)
Vegan sour cream (optional)
1) Top the chips with the beans and cheese (if using) and spread them out as much as possible. Microwave on high for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
2) Spread the rest of the ingredient on top to your liking. Cheese is really not needed, especially if you love the jalapeño kick!
