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!
