Expert Tips

You can use a Mexican-style pork chorizo in place of the vegetarian variety if you like.

I really enjoy vegetarian food and frequently look to substitute meat ingredients for soy protein. I’ve found a buenisimo vegetarian chorizo, which is an excellent option when cooking your favorite chorizo recipe. Since nachos are one of my preferred snacks, I decided to create a dish incorporating a rico vegetarian chorizo with this classic finger-food. I hope you’ll try out this recipe yourself and let us know how you liked it. Let’s cook!

Directions

  • 1 First place the vegetarian chorizo in a skillet and cook with a bit of vegetable oil for 20 minutes or until golden. Set aside.
  • 2 Next chop and prepare the vegetables from the recipe list, creating a Mexican salsa by combining the onion, tomato, serrano chili peppers and lemon juice. Mix well and season with salt as desired.
  • 3 To assemble the nachos, place a bed of corn chips or totopos over a large serving dish and fill with a bit of cooked chorizo, prepared salsa, some fresh cilantro, chopped avocado and black beans. Last, sprinkle the chips with a bit of crumbled queso fresco and serve immediately.
