Summer Vegan Nacho's

Vegan, Vegetarian, Wheat-free, Gluten-free, Yeast-free, Egg-free, Guilt-free
Mexican Nacho's with homemade Guacamole, Sour Cream and Spicy Tomato Salsa! 

Mexican Nachos are the go to snack for summer, especially for BBQ's or Outdoor Family/Friends birthdays or gatherings. I love my Mexican Food, spices & flavours....they're all oh so moorish. I love nibbling on Nacho's watching a good ol' movie.

-1 Bag of Plain Tortilla Chips (Vegan & Wheat-free)
-A few Jalapeños 
-Dairy-free Cheese (I used Cheezley Mozzarella which i got from Goodness.Direct, i'll link it below)
-Seasoning (Pinch of Salt & Pepper)
-Fresh Corriander to garnish


Lets start off with the Sour Cream- 

How to make Vegan Sour Cream-
-1 Pack of Firm Silken Tofu ( I used a 300gram box)
-1 Teaspoon of Sweetner ( I used Agave nectar)
-2 Tablespoons of Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
-1/4 Teaspoon of Salt
-2 Tablespoons of Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice 

Step 1- Pop the Silken Tofu into a Food Processor & blend.

 Step 2- Add in all of the other ingredients and whizz up on high until smooth & creamy, add a splash of Lemon Juice to add more zingy taste (optional)


How to make Vegan Guacamole-
-1 ripe Avocado
- 1/2 Large Tomato (Roughly Chopped)
-1 Tablespoon of Lime Juice
-1 Small Garlic Clove (Crushed)
-1/2 a Red onion (Finely Chopped)
-Seasoning ( Salt & Pepper)

I used the same Guacamole recipe, which is on my Mexican Cups Recipe, so click the link below and you'll be magically taken to my delicious Guacamole recipe!

How to make Vegan Salsa-
-Handful of Small tomatoes or 1 Large Tomatoe (chopped finely)

Lets put everything together-

Step 1- On a plate, arrange your Tortilla Chips and start to pile on the delicious toppings.

Step 2- Melt your Cheese by popping it into a non-stick pan & heat gently  stirring with a wooden spoon. Watch it Melt & turn gooey) yummy
Pour over the Tortillas

Step 3- In a Pan on Medium Heat, give the Beans a quick rinse, then pour them into the Pan for 3-4 minutes, until softened.

Step 4- Build up the Nacho's by adding on the Beans, Salsa, Guacamole, Sour Cream, Seasoning, Jalapeños and Fresh Coriander Leaves.
