I promised you guys more snack and game day recipes for upcoming Superbowl parties so here we are again and this one I think you’re going to really love, Incredible Loaded Vegan Nachos with Vegan Queso and Jalapeno Ranch. I have tried over the years, several Vegan Nacho recipes and let me tell you, these are my favorite!
These were born on one fateful Saturday afternoon after the gym and Andrew and I were on a hunger rampage. Seeing as that I had a bag of corn chips, something I almost never have sitting around, I decided to take a swing at Vegan nachos, basically throwing “everything but the kitchen sink” into them and, well, to make a long story short, they were so good we ate the entire sheet. So much for the gym!
Let’s talk about the Queso here briefly. I usually make vegan cheese sauce or Queso with cashews but on this particular day I didn’t have any, so I attempted to make one using just a roux, which if you’re unfamiliar, is that thickened sauce you get when you mix flour and oil or butter. This came out so good, it is truly the best vegan cheese sauce I’ve ever had, you cannot tell it is vegan at all! I added green chilies to mine which added a great flavor and texture but they’re optional and the sauce is great without them!
These nachos are amazing and, honestly pretty customizable as far was your toppings go! Although, I have to admit, the Herb Jalapeno Ranch really takes the whole thing right over the top! If you don’t have the ingredient’s to make that though, you can just top the nachos with pickled jalapenos for extra added spice! DIG IN!
Ps. Go Philly (it’s an unpopular take, and I don’t give a damn)
Lots of Love,
