Vegan Loaded Nachos

Sometimes life delivers deadlines, graduations, meetings, and just generally too much to do all in the same day. It’s enough to make a person want to kick back with some comfort food. That, my friends, is what these Vegan Loaded Nachos are all about.

A serving platter full of vegan loaded nachos shows tortilla chips topped with melted cheese, chopped tomatoes, avocado slices, and more.

I know there’s a preconceived notion that vegan means a lot of time in the kitchen. We’ve been typecast.

And you know what? Sometimes there’s some truth to that notion. Word! But sometimes any kind of cooking at home can require time in the kitchen. You know, like Thanksgiving?

There are also times when a vegan dish doesn’t have to take forever. Like, say these easy Vegan Loaded Nachos.

How to Make Vegan Nachos

There are four easy steps to make these yummy Vegan Nachos:

  1. First, heat your oven to 375°F and lightly coat a pan with vegetable cooking spray.
  2. Spread tortilla chips on the pan. Top with cheese, Bulgogi Jackfruit, black beans, and corn.
  3. Place the pan in the oven and bake until the cheese has melted around 10 minutes.
  4. Remove from the oven and add sliced avocado, cherry tomato slices, pickled jalapeño, and vegan sour cream. For presentation, adding a few sprigs of parsley or cilantro adds a nice finishing touch.

What You’ll Love About These Vegan Loaded Nachos

Let’s start with the obvious. Once you have the ingredients on hand, this recipe is so easy to throw together. It’s as simple as heating up the oven, putting some chips on the prepared pan, topping with some vegan shredded cheese and other goodies, baking for a few minutes and having at it. I used the Bulgogi Jackfruit because, well, it’s delicious. But if you don’t have that around, you can always substitute some veggie crumbles. It’s all good!

But just being easy isn’t the only thing you need at dinner time. It’s gotta be tasty too. Just take a look at these photos and you’ll see how tasty these Vegan Loaded Nachos are!

Of course, there are also some plant-based goodies in the mix too, between the jackfruit, black beans, corn, avocado, tomatoes, and jalapeño slices. I’m not saying that nachos are necessarily healthy food. I mean, it’s still a plate full of tortilla chips. But you can at least add these toppings to your list of daily veggies which is always a good thing.

  1. Another lovely post! Nachos are one of my go-to’s for busy nights. They are husband approved too which is a plus as well. In fact, its ANOTHER bonus that my husband can even make these haha. Always nice when I get a random break from the kitchen. Even hobbies need a rest sometimes!

      May has been a completely busy month. Maybe June will be slow and lazy…like summer’s supposed to be. 🙂
