These Nachos come together in 30 minutes. Make the nut-free Vegan Nacho cheese sauce in 10 mins, spice up beans, prepare the toppings, layer and serve. Vegan Nachos Recipe. Soy-free Nut-free Gluten-free Recipe
I had been meaning to make some Nachos with a sauce version of my Nut-Free Agar-free Nacho Cheese Slices and what better day than today. Today is National Nachos day 🙂
Make some Nachos. I made these around Lunch, quickly took some pictures with the winds howling away outside, and ate the whole bowl! Ok I lie. Ate a bit more than half of it. I eat small meals 🙂
These Nachos practically come together within 30 minutes, if you have pre-made salsa and guacamole on hand. Spice up some beans, make the cheese sauce. Warm up the Tortilla chips, layer and serve.
The Nacho cheese Sauce is very addictive. I make some to serve up with crackers, veggies or tortilla chips. Not keen on chickpea flour? Make my cashew based Nacho cheese sauce from this post. Bring the sauce to boil to thicken. Or this 10 Minute regular flour sauce.
There can never be enough Vegan Nachos!
More Nacho things from the blog.
Spice up the beans, make the Nacho cheese sauce, warm the nachos, gather salsa guacamole and other toppings. Ready to layer.
Layer it up and serve immediately.
