Vegan Nachos and Strawberry Mango Margaritas


I love nachos so much I could eat them everyday. Instead, I reserve them for Saturday nights along with a pitcher of homemade margaritas. Each of these recipes is really just assembling ingredients – no real cooking required – so they are quick, easy, and oh so delicious! With Cinco de Mayo landing on a Wednesday this year, I think I may have to break my Saturday night only rule.

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  • On a baking sheet or oven-safe dish or platter create a layer of tortilla chips
  • On top of the layer of chips add half of the black beans and half of the chipotle sausage, evenly dispersing each
  • Top the first layer with about one third of the cheddar shreds
  • Crumble half of the smoked cheddar over the layer
  • Repeat entire process to create a second layer, finishing off with all remaining cheese
  • Bake for about 15 minutes or until cheese has melted and the chips are golden brown
