Football season is upon us- anyone else excited?! We’re big fans over here and there’s nothing better than a great game and yummy munchies! I have a whole file folder of delicious appetizers I like to whip up but my favorites are the ones that not only taste great but are relatively good for you as well. These nachos fit the bill- add on whatever toppings you’d like- black beans, avocado, salsa-  and you’ve got yourself a tasty snack to share.

I made our nachos meatless simply because we try to have meat-free meals at least once a week. It started back when my husband was unemployed and we were trying to save money. Now I mainly do it for health reasons. Whatever your motivation is, do it! You’ll be shocked at how delicious food can taste even without meat.

So, I called these nachos “wacky” because they’re a little different. And by a little different I mean a lot different, ha! There is absolutely no dairy in the “cheese” sauce, you can get all the ingredients at your local grocery store, it’s packed with vegetables and… gasp!… THEY TASTE AMAZING. Honestly, people, it’s somewhat shocking just how much these taste like the real thing. I used Silk Cashew Milk because of all the dairy-free milk alternatives I’ve tried, it’s the creamiest. And trust me, these nachos taste creamy! Seriously, check out all the amazing recipes using Silk milk! On to the recipe…

Wacky Nachos

Serves 6-8

  • 1 cup diced yukon gold potato (1 medium-large potato yields 1 cup)
  • 1/4 cup diced carrot (1 small carrot)
  • 1/4 cup diced onion
  • 1 1/4 cup Silk Cashew Milk, original flavor
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp minced garlic
  • dash of cayenne pepper

Dice the potato and carrots small. The smaller you dice them, the faster they cook and you really want them to be very soft before blending.

Combine the diced potato, carrots, onion, 1 cup of the cashew milk, salt, garlic and pepper in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Cover, reduce heat to simmer and cook an additional 20 minutes.

After 20 minutes, transfer mixture to a blender. Add in remaining 1/4 cup Cashew milk. Blend on high for 90 seconds, until sauce is smooth and creamy.

Let cool for 5 minutes. Mixture thickens as it cools.

Ladle over tortilla chips and top with sliced olives, avocado, diced tomatoes, sliced jalapeños- whatever you’d like!

  1. Do you know if it would work with coconut milk? I want to try these but don't want to wait until I can go to the store! They look so yummy!
    • Hmmm... coconut milk is on the creamier side too. If you have Yukon Gold potatoes, I say go for it and let me know how it turns out! I've made it many times and it's actually a pretty versatile recipe so I think you'll be just fine!
