This recipe is a great way to use up what you have in your cupboards, and get through any extra veggies that you might have in your fridge or garden that need to be enjoyed before spoilage. It is versatile and very easy to customize depending on your preferences and what you have on hand.

Nachos provide a delicious and filling meal that everyone enjoys. The flavors and textures are always enjoyable, and folks can make them spicy or keep them mild.

The refried bean base makes a wonderful vegetarian option over traditional meats, and provide a satisfying dip-like food for you to scoop with the chips. Mashed black beans would be another great bean to use. The flavor is rich and can be seasoned to compliment and enhance the nachos.

How can I make these vegetarian super nachos vegan approved?

If you are looking to serve the best vegan nachos, it’s easy to do with only a few adjustments to this recipe. All of the veggies that we have featured are vegan, and you can definitely add in some of your favorites. The cheese can be omitted completely, or, reach for your favorite vegan cheese brand to bring that luscious melty factor to the dish.

Sour cream and other dairy based toppings can be left out because guacamole and salsa provide such rich, creamy textures. There are vegan sour creams on the market as well; so, if you decide to use one of those you have lot’s of options to choose from. Vegan sheet pan nachos are amazingly easy to make!

Nachos are a fantastic meal because they can be prepared in so many ways to fit different dietary needs. We love how simple and quick it is to build a delicious nacho tray that everyone can enjoy.
