Loaded Vegan Buffalo Chicken Nachos (Football Appetizer) | platingpixels.comLoaded nachos is a loose term that entails piling a bunch of things onto tortilla chips. Nachos can be customized however you like. Add as many toppings as you like, and whatever meat or meat alternatives, cheese and toppings as you can feasibly fit on a serving plate.

Even though it’s fall, and there’s plenty of seasonal recipes popping up, let’s not forget the everyday recipes. I still plan on grilling throughout the season, warmer weather permitting. Plus if you’re watching football, pumpkin spice may not be the best thing to serve.

These Vegan Buffalo Chicken Nachos don’t include meat as you might suspect. For chicken flavor, but vegan friendly diets, use MorningStar Farms® Buffalo Wings from America’s #1 Veggie Burger Brand. The texture and flavor could easily pass for chicken, and you’re non-vegan guests will enjoy them as well. Instead of beans, I used the MorningStar Farms® Spicy Black Bean Burger Value Pack. They’re great on the grill, especially during football season.

Tips for your Vegan Buffalo Chicken Nachos

  • Chop the “chicken” into smaller pieces and toss in a bowl with buffalo sauce. There’s already plenty of flavor, but this adds additional tang, sauciness and a wow effect to your loaded nachos. Pile onto tortilla chips, then sprinkle with plenty of (vegan) cheese and bake
  • Drizzle with more buffalo sauce (because you can never have too much sauce)
  • Garnish with additional items such as jalapenos, avocado, and cilantro
