Fully Loaded Nachos - FOOD PHOTO SHOOT

You know what time it is? Nacho!

I’m really tempted to throw in a Nacho Libre meme here but I don’t think I will. Tell me, do you agree that memes were a whole lot funnier before the internet was so entirely saturated with them? I don’t know, I just think less is more sometimes.

So do you remember that “cheese” sauce I made a while back? Well, my teenage brother has been almost begging me to make it again recently so I thought I’d make a batch. That’s when I had the idea to make something with it and nachos seemed like the best idea ever.

Now here’s where we get into possibilities, because there are so many. For one thing, I can’t believe I started making these without having black beans. Clearly I’m so well planned right? haha, well I ended up having to use some white beans instead (still delicious) and for some extra contrast I also added some cooked black lentils. Moral of the story; you can just use black beans and call it a day.

Alright, then for the chips, you can use any kind you like OR you can take this whole thing to the next level and make potato nachos! Again, there are so many options. If you don’t like olives just leave them out and if you don’t want to bake these that’s totally fine too. You can just warm the cheese sauce like they do at a concession stand and top as you want. It’s so easy.

I added jalapenos for the boys but to be honest I’d probably leave them off of mine. Then for the condiments, I used some salsa, guacamole, and then some coconut cream that I mixed with lime juice. It makes it very close to a sour cream on things like this. Last step is to sprinkle on plenty of fresh cilantro and dive in.

The colors of all ingredients which added in it enhance the beauty of food.

I've done something similar to this once but it wasn't so beautiful looking. The taste was good though. :)

I tried using this recipe instead of tortilla to put ordinary potato chips. It was very tasty

Wow nachos with olives .. yummy!!
