Loaded Summer Vegan Nachos

Perfect summer days call for these perfect Loaded Summer Vegan Nachos. We were feeling for some delicious appetizers to share with friends and family during those summer get togethers. Nachos with homemade cashew sour cream and fresh veggies sounded like a winner. 

We are switching up the traditional sour cream, by making this delicious plant-based cashew sour cream. How many of you have had or even heard of cashew sour cream? It’s the perfect vegan friendly alternative that will add that creamy flavor, plus healthy fats and fiber.

We whipped these up with some jalapeño, red onion, and avocado. There’s also a spicy kick from the chipotle peppers, which we blended with black beans. Black beans are one of our favorite plant-based proteins and also add fiber, B vitamins, potassium, iron, and other minerals.

Enough with the chit chat, let’s get these Loaded Summer Vegan Nachos started.

Let’s start by making our sour cream. Once the cashews are soaked, drain the water, rinse off the cashews, and blend with fresh water, apple cider vinegar, and lime juice. Add salt, to taste, and set aside. Line a small tray with the nachos and set aside. Add the black beans, chipotle pepper, and water to a food processor. Pulse until you get a paste-like consistency. Salt, to taste

Scoop the black bean paste evenly onto the nacho chips. Now comes all of our toppings. Add the jalapeño, tomato, red onion, avocado, and radish on top. Then drizzle the sour cream onto the nachos, and finish with a splash of lime juice. Finishing touch? Add cumin, paprika, and chili powder, to taste. Enjoy!

Nachos just got a gorgeous, plant-based makeover with these Loaded Summer Vegan Nachos! We’re thinking this is a great appetizer to bring to that next cookout.
