Are you ready for this?
I can't even prepare you for what's about to go down right now.
If you love nachos, read on. If not, you're just about to change your mind, and maybe your entire life.
We love nachos. They're crunchy, you get to eat with your hands and they're always loaded with a ton of deliciousness.
I thought to myself one morning, "Why can't I eat these every day?" and "Will I ever get sick of nachos?" All very important questions.
So, we came up with 5 different ways to eat your nachos you'll never get bored of and bonus, won't tip the bathroom scale. These babies are gluten-free and can easily be modified for vegetarians. Yes, this is real life.
For our chips, we used brown rice tortillas that we sliced into triangles and baked until crispy. They're so easy to make, taking only 6 minutes in the oven at 415oF.
You can also add a flavourful twist by using sweet potato chips or any other baked/dehydrated veggie slices (zucchini! beets!). Here's how to make your own sweet potato chips at home.
1. Breakfast Nachos with Tex Mex Turkey
If this looks familiar to you, that's because we repurposed our Taco Breakfast Bowl recipe into nachos! Because c'mon, sometimes we just wanna eat nachos for breakfast.
Simply load up your brown rice tortilla chips with seasoned ground turkey, green pepper, tomato, avocado and that always beautiful and delicious, fried runny egg.
2. Bruschetta & Kale Pesto Nachos
Chips. Dollops of kale pesto. Bruschetta. Feta. Always and forever a classic.
3. Stuffed Mini Peppers with Vegan Cheese Sauce
How about a low carb, vegan option? We used cute mini peppers instead of tortilla chips, stuffed with refried beans and placed under the broiler for 5 minutes. Then topped with green pepper, red onion, black olives, avocado and a drizzle of our brand new vegan cheese sauce recipe. Oh yes.
4. Sweet Potato Nachos with Chicken and Pineapple Guacamole
Sweet potatoes and avocados are among several ingredients that help fight symptoms of depression. Not only will the flavourful combo of sweet potato chips, shredded chicken and pineapple guac brighten up your day, their mood-boosting properties can help improve your mental health. Win-win.
5. Sweet Potato Nachos with Creamed Corn and Bacon
We firmly believe nachos aren't just snacks or appetizers. They deserve to be enjoyed as entrees too. With a good serving of chickpeas and quinoa in our dairy-free creamed corn, these tasty nachos make a complete meal. Simply make these nachos vegan-friendly by leaving out the bacon.
