PRIVATE: Epic Nachos with BBQ Pulled Jackfruit

These epic nachos make for a delicious, diet-friendly appetizer, an easy dinner, & a quick midnight snack. Enjoy this comfort-food, party platter in just 10 minutes.

Nachos are a pretty new snack, like I wasn't born yet but new enough to trace back its origins. If you do this, you'll find that they originated in the city of Piedras Negras, Mexico in 1943. They've since become not only a Mexican staple but an international one.

In the simplest form, nachos are heated chips with melted cheese and perhaps a few jalapeños. The modern version has come to include beans and other veggies or meat, making this dish, not just an appetizer but a full-on meal.

Fresh Tomato Salsa

What's a Mexican dish without a little homemade salsa? This little add on with take your nachos to the next level!

To give the salsa enough time to marinate, start making it first. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, add;

  • the diced tomato
  • diced red onion
  • fresh parsley
  • minced garlic

Mix this all together, then set aside to marinate for 5-10 minutes.

The BBQ Jackfruit Nachos

Start by preheating the oven to 350° F.

The best part about nachos is the toppings! I know what you thinking, but what are nachos without the chips? Well, let me ask this, what is the worst part about ordering nachos at a restaurant? Arguably, the lack of toppings that leaves lots of sad-looking chips at the end. Fear not, we are going to go a little insane with the toppings, leaving no chip behind.

Spread the nacho chips over a large baking sheet. The large baking sheet will make it so you don't have to layer the chips, but, instead, can just fairly distribute the toppings.

Next, add the BBQ pulled Jackfruit. You can either buy your pre-made (which taste surprisingly good) or you make your own BBQ jackfruit by following this recipe here.

Then, evenly distribute the fresh tomato salsa, followed by the black beans, pickled jalapenos, and shredded red cabbage. I used about 1/8 cup of sliced jalapenos, but if you aren't a fan of spice use a bit less.

Finally, top the nachos with lots of shredded vegan cheese. Then, place the pan in your preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, turning your oven to high broil for the last 2 minutes.

When you think about nachos you don't think of them as being healthy, but who says they can't be? What makes typical nachos bad for you is also what makes them non-vegan. So it's pretty easy to make them both healthy and vegan by just cutting out the meat and dairy. Then, instead, you load up on plant-based cheese, beans, and veggies. What your left with is no snack but a diet-friendly meal. With that being said, enjoy your nachos!!
