Black Bean and Tomato Nacho’s
I’m sure I’ve said it before but I hate store bought vegan cheese! I hate when restaurants use it instead of making their own! I hate when it is added to recipes that already have a homemade vegan cheese in it. I hate it with a passion.
I wish I liked it for the convenience of it and am open to trying any new brands that come out. I do buy a certain brand of vegan cheese for the kids when I make pizza. They get their own separate pizza though. My husband and I will eat a pizza that is either cheeseless or with a homemade raw cashew cheese on it.
One thing my husband won’t eat, besides vegan cheese, is nachos. Not even with a homemade cheese sauce for it. Just telling him about these nacho’s last night made him freak out. Like truly freaked out and wanted me to stop talking about it! I used to wait until he was away on a business trip to eat a nacho dinner but yesterday I thought what’s stopping me from making it for lunch? So I did.
It’s a much simpler version of nacho’s then I would make for a dinner portion. Its just blue and white corn chips, rinsed canned black beans, chopped up cherry tomatoes and a homemade nutritional yeast nacho sauce. The sauce is made from 1/2 a small onion minced, 3 cloves of garlic, a pinch of red pepper flakes, chili powder, cumin powder, onion powder, earth balance, olive oil, nutritional yeast, gluten free all purpose flour, almond milk, salt and pepper. The sauce was divine! I loved the heat that the red pepper flakes and chili powder provided. I’m looking forward to making this lunch version again really soon. I’ll wait until my husband is on his business trip before I make a dinner portion when the kids are already in bed. I am used to not sharing my nachos and I don’t intend to start to. (They wouldn’t eat them anyway.)
