I have been dying to share a nacho recipe here on the blog for-EVER but I always had some excuse, mostly along the “I don’t need a whole platter of nachos in my house right now because I’ll just eat them all” line. But you know what? It’s almost the Super Bowl.
Oh and you know what else? ANYTIME is a great time for nachos, even healthy January. Life is short so I just have one question for you: are you ready…to chow down on some loaded vegetarian sheet pan nachos?!
I certainly hope you are because I’m well on my way to a food coma and I need you play catch up 😎.
Now, what’s so great about these nachos?
One. They’re cheesy and delicious and super customizable . Want to add some chicken or ground beef? Do it. Like green salsa better? Own it. No tomato but you’re in a bell pepper mood? Go for it.
Two. 20 minutes. That’s it! Layer them up, bake them for 10 minutes, broil for a couple more for ultimate cheesy goodness and voila! The perfect appetizer tray for Super Bowl Sunday.
Three. Honestly do you need three reasons? They’re nachos. Get some 👊🏻.
