Categories: Appetizers Date: 2011-06-27 Title: Nacho Bake
This recipe originated from the vegan-gal.com website. (Check out Jill Ovnick's site. It's super.)
Jill Ovnick introduced me to The Cancer Project, and suggested I apply. Her recipe is so tasty, great for a party appetizer. Folks are surprised to learn it's plant based. The addition of refried beans was my own touch.
Preheat oven to 350. Smash all the chips right in the bag. (That's right. Just keep on smashing! Who would have thought that cooking could be such a wonderful stress reliever!) Pour the crumbled chips into a very large bowl. Add the remaining ingredients. Mix well, making sure that all the chips have moisture on them. You can add more salsa, some veggie broth or white wine to ensure proper moistness.
Transfer ingredients to a baking dish. Sprinkle with soy cheddar cheese, cover and bake for about 25 minutes.
Note: "Follow Your Heart" makes Vegan Gourmet non-dairy cheese that is yummy......Cheddar, Monterey Jack and Mozzarella. Can be found in most natural food stores.
