Beefless Beef Bro-Nachos

Nachos are one of nature’s greatest creations. They have so much cheesy goodness in each bite. Now I know what you’re thinking “John cheese isn’t vegan” and for the most part you’d be right, but it is possible to make delicious vegan cheese sans dairy! I’ll take you through my favorite vegan nachos recipe that have a ton of protein and taste great! The best part is they’re easy to make!

How To Make Beefless Beef Nachos

The key to making any great nacho recipe is layering. To few people do this and it’s upsetting! There is no worse feeling than eating the top layer of nacho goodness only to arrive at the second layer and be met with tostito chips with nothing on them.

  1. Start by cooking ground round in a pan and set aside
  2. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  3. Lay down parchment paper on a cookie sheet
  4. Put down one layer of chips, enough to cover the sheet but not stacked on top of each other
  5. Add half your ingredients except salsa, sour cream, and guac on top of the chips.
  6. Add another layer of chips on top of that.
  7. Add the other half your dry ingredients on top
  8. Place the nachos on the middle rack of your oven. Bake for 15 min, checking occasionally to ensure they’re not burning.
  9. Remove from the oven, add a scoop of sour cream, guacamole, and salsa in the middle on top.

It really is that easy to enjoy a delicious treat with your friends!

Kitchen Equipment I used for recipe:

  • Cheap Cast Iron I only use for the oven – Okay this may sound weird but I have 2 cast irons and I use them for different things. This one isn’t great but it’s cheap so I don’t mind beating it up a bit. I only use this one for pictures and when I have to put recipes in the oven lol
  • Slightly more expensive more functional cast iron – okay this isn’t a true cast iron because it’s nonstick but it’s heavy-duty and cooks great!
  • Aesthetically pleasing teal spoon set – a lot of people recently have been asking about my spoon set and I feel like a fraud because everyone thinks it’s some expensive set but it’s super inexpensive and they look amazing!

I really hope no one was coming to the nutrition section thinking nachos were healthy lol And yes even vegan food can be unhealthy. Although not all bad there are a few things to be conscious of.

Nachos are high in sodium, like really high. Ingesting too much sodium comes with a host of problems but the largest one is it raises your blood pressure which comes with a laundry list of other problems.

Nachos also have a lot of fat in them. Now fat isn’t bad for you, but it is high in calories, and it’s easy to over eat fats and consume all of your calories for a day whilst missing several key other nutrients.

Now thats not to say you should never eat nachos or anything bad again but it’s just important to remember to eat certain foods in moderation.

These nachos also contain 172% of your b12 intake per serving which is good because about two-fifths of the population are b12 deficient.

  1. This is such a fun page and recipe! You making being a vegan look fun and cool. Now to make some nachos…

  2. Hey John!
    Those nachos look great!
    One thing, I think you missed including the cheeze sauce in the recipe, and you didn’t show what product you were using for it in the video. Do you have a recipe for the cheeze sauce that I haven’t seen yet? This is my first time on your blog, and only the third recipe that I checked out. I’m excited to check out your other recipes. I’ve been vegan (although I’m not a purist) for 2-1/2 years now, and always looking for ways to make food look/taste as good as it was before I gave up meat!
    Thanks for doing what you do!
    Ruth
