Fiesta forever with these vegan loaded nachos, surprisingly healthy and packed with veggies, plant protein, and delicious toppings!
Fully loaded nachos… but make ’em healthy!  These vegan nachos have tons of veggies and plant protein for a fun and filling dinner. Bring restaurant vibes home to your casa, with these simple and mouth-watering nachos. Ready in about 20 minutes, a quick and healthy dinner is a few ingredients away.

These Vegan Loaded Nachos Are:

  • Cripsy & crunchy
  • Healthy
  • Filling
  • Earthy
  • Spicy
  • Packed with flavor: there are so many awesome spices and textures in this dish to love!
  • Versatile: use your favorite toppings, or whatever you have on hand!
We make tacos a lot around here, and I feel like I always have tons of leftover ingredients each time. Extra taco filling, extra spicy beans, and always plenty of leftover chopped tomatoes and onions.  What better way to use all those ingredients than nachos?

What’s In These Vegan Loaded Nachos?

  • Tortilla chips: any chips of your choice! Any size, shape, flavor (hint of lime totally acceptable!), color, or size.  Pile ’em high and dig in.
  • Taco filling: I use my super easy vegan TVP Taco Filling which is crazy high in protein and totally vegan.  These nachos are a great way to use leftover taco meat from when you go a little nuts on Taco Tuesday.
  • Black Beans: You can add canned beans for a quick addition, but these nachos are the perfect vehicle for my Spicy Instant Pot Black Beans, which have the perfect amount of spice and an awesome smoky flavor.
  • Sliced olives because yum – you can use black, green, whatever you prefer.
  • Cheese of choice: there are some great melty vegan options out there if you don’t eat dairy!
  • Tomatoes, freshly diced
  • Avocado, or a little #TacoTuesday Guacamole if you’re feeling extra.
  • Red onion for big bold flavor
  • Lettuce, shredded for that extra crunch
  • Sliced jalapenos, or any other hot peppers if you like ’em.

How Do I Make These Vegan Loaded Nachos?

  1. Preheat the oven to 350.
  2. In a oven-safe baking dish, add the tortilla chips to the bottom of the dish.
  3. Layer in the taco meat, black beans, sliced olives, and cheese of choice.
  4. Bake for about 15-20 minutes until nachos begin to heat all the way through
  5. Once nachos have been cooked and cheese has melted, remove the dish from the oven.  Top with fresh tomatoes, red onion, avocado, lettuce, and jalapeno.  Serve and enjoy!
