Healthy Vegan Nachos!

 This is the stuff that helps so much when you're having those unhealthy cravings of something gooey and delicious. A healthy alternative to nachos. mmm! 

Nacho Recipe:
Serves 2

1 can of refried beans - I use Amy's
1 red bell pepper - diced
1 jalapeno pepper - diced no seeds (unless you like the spice)
2 tomatoes - diced
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
2 tablespoons cornstarch (non GMO)
1 tablespoon ketchup 
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 avocado
1/2 a lime
4 handfuls of tortilla chips (non GMO)

1) In a medium sauce pan heat a tablespoon of olive oil on medium heat. Add peppers and cook till tender. When peppers are tender add tomatoes and refried beans.

2) While the peppers are cooking, put avocado in a bowl and mash with spoon, add lime and mix. 

3) In a small sauce pan add 1/2 cup of water and 2 tablespoons of cornstarch, mix. Add the 1/4 cup of nutritional yeast and stir for about 2 minutes or until thickens. Add your ketchup, garlic powder, and salt. Stir. I added a little more water at the end so it wasn't thick.

4) Assemble with chips on the bottom, refried beans, "cheese" sauce, and then guacamole.

  1. So far I have made the cheez recipe twice (once for tacos and once for nachos) and both times it was delicious! Even my cheese-loving boyfriend enjoyed it. Great to finally have a good sauce that doesn't rely on faux cheese products or tons of oil/fat.
