Sometimes you just want something cheesy, gooey, decadent, and rich, especially football season and game days. When I think of football, appetizers come to mind. They’re quick, easy and shareable. These Loaded Veggie Buffalo Chicken Nachos can be made in about 15 minutes and can be scaled to feed whatever size crowd you have.
Loaded 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 Veggie Buffalo Chicken Nachos don’t include meat as you might suspect. For chicken flavor, but vegetarian-friendly diets, use MorningStar Farms® Buffalo Wings from America’s #1 Veggie Burger Brand. The texture and flavor could easily pass for chicken, and your non-vegetarian 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.
Look for MorningStar Farms® products in the frozen section of your local Walmart market. Plus you’ll find all the other ingredients for these Loaded Veggie Buffalo Chicken Nachos at affordable prices.
Tips for making Veggie 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 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
