Here are some super-tasty nachos that can be made with pantry and refrigerator staples in a matter of minutes.
Ingredients
  • 4 to 5 ounces natural stone-ground organic tortilla chips
  • 1 cup grated vegan cheddar cheese
  • 1 to 2 jalapeño peppers, to taste, seeded and thinly sliced, or one 4-ounce can chopped mild green chiles
  • ½ cup lightly cooked fresh (or thawed frozen) corn kernels
  • ½ cup cooked or canned (drained and rinsed) black, red, or pinto beans
  • 1 medium ripe tomato, finely chopped
  • 2 or 3 big handfuls baby spinach
  • Salsa (your favorite brand), as needed
Optional garnishes
Instructions
  1. Arrange the tortilla chips on a large platter or a shallow, round casserole dish, about 14 inches in diameter. Sprinkle evenly with the cheese, followed by the chili peppers, corn, beans, and tomato.
  2. Bake for 8 minutes, more or less, until the cheese is well melted. Or microwave for 3 minutes.
  3. Scatter the spinach over the top and return to the oven for 2 minutes or so, or to the microwave for another minute, just until it wilts.
  4. Serve at once. Pass around salsa to top individual portions, as well as any of the optional garnishes.
