Nachos

Last week I wrote about using a new shredded vegan cheese for nachos. One of my favorite things to eat in the summer is nachos and I realized that maybe some would like to know how I make delicious nachos. There are two important tips I have learned over the years for great nachos. The first tip my brother taught me and that is every chip gets refried beans. Every single chip intended for the plate gets some refried beans. The second tip is to use the freshest ingredients possible. For example, make the guacamole rather than buying pre-made guacamole. What you will need:

Tortilla chips

Vegetarian refried beans

Vegan shredded cheese, I use a jack or mozzarella

1 large avocado

1 TBS juice from a lemon

1 can large black olives with pits removed, sliced

2 medium tomatoes, seeds removed, diced

Vegan sour cream

Mash the avocado with the lemon juice to make a simple guacamole. Place a glop of refried beans on every chip and arrange one layer on a plate. Layer with cheese and microwave until the cheese melts, about a minute. Randomly glop on guacamole and sour cream to your liking. Layer on tomatoes and olives. Enjoy!
