Serves: 6

Picture this: a sizzling platter of golden tortilla chips, adorned with a melty river of dairy-free cheese that cascades over the edges, creating a tempting pool of gooey goodness. That’s the experience you get when eating these vegan nachos from The Everyday Vegan Cheat Sheet cookbook.

What you need:

For the tahini nacho sauce:
½ cup tahini
½ cup plain, unsweetened vegan milk
1⁄3 cup nutritional yeast
¼ cup olive oil
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons water
½ teaspoon ground cumin
½ teaspoon smoked paprika
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon chili powder
¼ teaspoon ground turmeric
½ teaspoon salt

For assembly:
1 (10–12 ounce) bag tortilla chips
1 (14-ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
2 tomatoes or 1 cup cherry tomatoes, diced
2 medium avocados, sliced or diced
¼ red onion, finely diced
2 jalapeños, thinly sliced
¼ cup fresh cilantro, minced
¼ cup corn kernels
¼ cup thinly sliced radishes
Hot sauce, for garnish
2 tablespoons sliced olives
½ cup refried beans

What you do:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Into a large bowl, add tahini and whisk in milk, nutritional yeast, olive oil, lime juice, and vinegar. Whisk until smooth, if needed, add 1 tablespoon of water to slightly thin. Whisk in cumin, paprika, garlic powder, chili powder, turmeric, and salt.
2. On a sheet pan, spread tortilla chips out in an even layer, allowing only a little bit of overlap. Place in oven for 8 to 10 minutes, to re-crisp and warm chips through.
3. Remove from oven and drizzle generously with half of nacho sauce. Evenly sprinkle beans and tomatoes on top before baking for an additional 5 minutes, to slightly thicken sauce.
4. Remove from oven and top with avocado, red onion, jalapeños, fresh cilantro, corn, radishes, hot sauce, olives, and refried beans.
