Healthy Nachos 5 Ways

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. 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.

3. Stuffed Mini Peppers with Vegan Cheese Sauce

How about a corn-free, 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.

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.
