How To Make Healthy Loaded Vegan Nachos


Indulge in these Loaded Vegan Nachos when you’re craving that familiar crunch and creamy taste without the dairy. This recipe contains instructions to create a delicious “cheese” to drip over homemade tortilla chips and nutritious toppings. Enjoy this vegan twist on classic comfort food!

What is Vegan Cheese?


Vegan cheese can be made from various plant proteins such as nuts, seeds, nutritional yeast, and soybeans. Like cheeses that contain dairy products, vegan cheese comes in different textures, tastes, and densities. In addition, minimally processed vegan cheese often contains micronutrients, fiber, and healthy fats from wholesome plant-based ingredients.

Are Nacho Chips Vegan?


Most tortilla chips, which are typically used as the base for nachos, are vegan and gluten-free. However, you can substitute tortilla chips with sliced bell peppers, flax crackers, zucchini chips, kale chips, and much more if you prefer.




Are Vegan Nachos Healthy?


This Loaded Vegan Nachos recipe contains ingredients such as pinto beans, hearty vegetables, and cashews that contain essential nutrients for a healthy vegan diet. In addition, homemade tortilla chips eliminate unhealthy calories, sodium, and fats. Like any of your favorite foods, these delicious nachos are healthiest when enjoyed in moderation.

How To Make Healthy Loaded Vegan Nachos

  1. *Soak cashews in the water ahead of time for at least 30 minutes*
  2. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  3. Cut corn tortillas into triangular chip shapes and toss with olive oil, salt, and a squeeze of lime. Place tortilla chips onto a lined baking tray. The chips should take around 20 minutes to bake but may depend on your oven, so check frequently!
  4. While the chips are baking, prepare the refried beans. Drain and rinse the can of pinto beans and place into a small pot with a dash of water and cumin, smoked paprika, and chili powder. Mash the beans as they heat up with a fork or potato masher until creamy. Add more water if needed to get to the desired consistency.
  5. Cut the onion into thin, half-moon shapes, the bell pepper into thin strips, and the jalapeno into rounds. Saute the veggies with olive oil, chili powder, and cumin in a pan until caramelized and crispy.
  6. Begin preparing the cheese sauce by draining the soaked cashews and adding them to a high-speed blender with lemon, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, salt and pepper, and water. Blend until smooth and creamy for about 2 minutes. Add more water if the cheese sauce is too thick.
  7. Chop the avocado and romaine and slice a lime into wedges.
  8. Assemble your nacho plate as desired, and don’t forget the cilantro and salsa on top!
