How to make these vegetarian nachos
To make these Two-Bean Vegetarian Nachos, start by preheating your oven to 400° F.
Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil and arrange the tortilla chips on the tray.
Cook the onion in olive oil over medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent burning.
Stir in refried beans, salsa and taco seasoning.
Cook over medium heat for an additional 2 minutes.
Begin layering the nachos starting with the refried bean mixture followed by black beans, tomatoes, olives, cheese and jalapenos.
For the vegan option, use a vegan cheddar-style shredded cheese or a combination of cheddar-style and pepper jack-style.
Bake for 7-10 minutes.
Sprinkle with fresh chopped cilantro if desired.
What to serve with nachos
- Sour cream (or vegan sour cream for the vegan option)
- If you're enjoying these as a main, they pair well with a side of our vegan Mexican rice.
- Sweet Onion - You can swap for yellow, white or red onion instead.
- Plum Tomatoes - You can dice any tomatoes of your choosing or use a canned version if you prefer. Just be sure to drain them if you opt for the canned variety.
- Olives - You can leave them off if you'd like or use all one kind instead of both black and Kalamata.
- Cheddar Jack Cheese - You can use a Mexican blend, all cheddar or all pepper jack if preferred.
- Jalapenos - You can leave off the jalapenos if you'd like or try using pickled jalapenos instead.
- Cilantro - You either love it or hate it...so if you hate it, leave it off or try replacing it with some chopped avocado instead.
