Healthy Loaded Nacho Toppings We Used

We have experimented with many different toppings, but for us, these were the healthiest, most colorful and flavorful combination of toppings. The list of ingredients we used to make the vegan nachos were:

Black beans – We buy black beans in bulk.  We absolutely love black beans in everything from savory recipes to sweet.  We like the pre-cooked canned beans for convenience, but you can also use dry beans if you have them or prefer them.  

Red onion – Simply dice the red onion any way you would like.  We also recommend rinsing the cut raw onions under cold water before using to take off some of that onion “sting”.

Guacamole – In this recipe we used our amazing Chunky Guacamole Recipe. Fresh guacamole is always best and never disappoints.

Cilantro – Fresh herbs are the best! Not only does cilantro offer many health benefits, but it adds a depth of flavor to this tasty dish.

Fresh tomatoes – Tomatoes add great color, flavor, and health benefits to the nachos.

Lime wedges–  This adds that slight kick of citrus needed to set your tastebuds off!

Vegan Queso– This vegan queso recipe is tried and true. It’s simple to make, but will elevate your vegan game day nachos and impress your friends and family.  This dip is totally dairy free and you won’t feel guilty about eating a large portion of this “queso”/

  • Start by preparing your vegan queso dip and your guacamole.
  • After the queso is finished, get all of your prep work done for the nachos. This includes draining and rinsing the beans, dicing the tomatoes, dicing the onion, making lime wedges, and chopping the cilantro.
  • Lay the tortilla chips down onto a large plate or serving dish in a flat layer. Its optional but if you like to warm up your chips, now would be a great time to toast them in the oven on broil for 30 seconds to 1 minute, until warm.
  • Next, add the beans, diced tomatoes, and red onions on top of the chips evenly.
  • After this add the cashew queso dip all over top of the nachos. Also, adding guacamole in little places all over the plate.
  • Finally garnish with the chopped cilantro and lime wedges.
