Veggie Nacho Grande

Veggie Nacho Grande

Looking for quick and easy appetizers for potluck or game day, than give this super sized veggie nacho grande a try – a must have for any get together. These super nachos are layered with fresh veggies, corn, black beans and generously smothered with a layer of shredded cheese. A simple side dish that is so easy to put together and taste wonderful!!

Ate this dish at our local restaurant and loved it. Since then wanted to recreate the same flavor.  Still, not the same but pretty close. 🙂  

It’s the most forgiving and adaptive recipe! I have used all the veggies I had on hand but there is always room for more, adjust toppings to suit your taste, as far as seasoning is concerned I personally prefer roasted cumin seeds in my Mexican recipes- but again make your choices.

To give it that ‘restaurant style feel’ add jalapenos peppers, banana peppers, more of mild or hot salsa- keep experimenting you can’t go wrong on this one!

Veggie Nacho GrandeFollow the step by step recipe and personalize as you go. Bake for 10 -15 minutes or until cheese is all melted and bubbly! Finish off with chopped green onions, sour cream and enjoy! This super nacho platter is a crowd-pleaser at every party, potluck, and picnic!

      Thanks for stopping by Jenna! Unfortunately you cannot prepare these ahead of time. Juices from tomatoes and lemon juice will make it soggy. Hope that helps!
