Description

Nachos Supreme! These loaded vegetarian nachos are made with flavorful “walnut chorizo”! A healthy, delicious nacho recipe that is baked in the oven. Vegan-adaptable and Gluten free!


Ingredients

Walnut Chorizo

Nachos

  • Tortilla chips ( enough to line a 13 x 18 inch sheet pan)
  • 1 cup re-fried beans (optional)
  • 1 1/2 cups cheese ( 46 ounces) , grated ( mexican blend, jack, mozzarella, cheddar or vegan melty cheese)
  • 1 batch walnut chorizo
  • —–
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 3 radishes, sliced
  • ¼ cup cilantro leaves
  • Garnishes: picked onion and jalapeño, hot sauce, sour cream

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375F

Make the Walnut Chorizo. Place walnuts, spices, salt and tomato paste in a food processor and pulse until it is the texture of course sand. Add a tablespoon of water, and pulse again, until just combined. ( see notes) Set aside.

Line a ½ sheet pan ( 13 x 18 inches) with parchment paper. Cover with tortilla chips. Drizzle chips with a little hot sauce. Spread out small spoonfuls of refried beans over top. Sprinkle with the cheese and spread out the walnut chorizo. Place in the oven until warmed through and cheese is melted, about 10- 12 minutes. While it’s baking prep your garnishes.

When cheese is melty, sprinkle with the tomatoes, cilantro, radishes, avocado, cilantro and any other garnishes you like. Pickled onions and jalapeños are nice. Sour cream or yogurt also good. 🙂

Eat immediately! These are best served right away, before cheese unmelts!


Notes

If using the walnut chorizo as taco filling or in burritos, where you might heat it up in a skillet, feel free to add a another tablespoon or two of water, so it doesn’t dry out in the pan. For extra richness you could even add a drizzle of olive oil.
