What I mean by this is that we add a thin layer of chips onto the plate we are using, then we add on our desired amount of cheese, salsa, black beans, guacamole, pickled jalapeños, onions, and cilantro + any other toppings of choice. After that, we add another layer of chips and another round of toppings! Classic Vegan nachos loaded up with homemade vegan queso, sweet simple beans, pickled jalapeños, guacamole, homemade restaurant-style salsa and so much more!

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

Instructions

Homemade Queso (adapted from our Chipotle Cheddar Cheese Sauce)

  1. Bring a medium pot of water to a boil, and place the potatoes, carrots, and cashews in once boiling. Simmer for about 20 minutes, or until fork-tender. Drain and transfer to a high-speed blender.

  3. Adjust seasonings to taste and add the additional juice from the jar of jalapeños as desired.

Assembly

  1. On a plate or in a white bowl, add a thin layer of chips. Add in your desired amount of cheese, salsa, black beans, guacamole, pickled jalapeños, onions, and cilantro + any other toppings of choice. Add another layer of chips and another round of toppings.

    Looks delicious! Is there anything to sub cashews with??

  2. Jojo says:

    Looks delicious! Do you know how long it will ‘keep’ in the fridge?

    • Hi Jojo! We would say about 2-3 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator. We do suggest that you keep the ingredients separate and assemble as you serve so that it does not get soggy.
