Sports Day Nachos

Sometimes you just need a meal you can put together in almost no time at all. Something that will work when you're focused on something other than the food, but still need something that will fill your tummy and taste great. I think Sports Day Nachos are just the meal for times like that.

This particular iteration of Sports Day Nachos was enjoyed with The Bests (what Shana and I call our best friends), who are visiting over the New Year holiday from Pennsylvania. Since Shana and The Bests went to Penn State for their undergrad degrees and that's where my PhD is from, we're spending the afternoon watching Penn State in their football bowl game (well, they are watching and I'm posting here, but I am on the couch in the same room). We decided that Sports Day Nachos would be a perfect meal for us to eat while we watch.

In addition to the speed of this meal, the other nice thing about Sports Day Nachos is that you can add whatever you'd like to make them your own. Whatever you choose to add, everything comes together in no time and you've got a great meal.

Sports Day Nachos
2 c. prepared Drunken Beans
1 recipe Lazy Dinner Tacos
1 chopped red pepper
3 small onions, caramelized
chopped lettuce

1. Prepare the taco meat. Heat the drunken beans.
2. Chop all the veggies.
3. Compile and eat!

Helpful Hints
  • Here are some other ideas to add to your Sports Day Nachos: vegan cheese, chopped tomatoes, chopped jalapenos, salsa, vegan sour cream, taco sauce, olives, etc.
  • If you leave our the taco meat, this is easily a gluten-free meal. It's soy-free without the faux meat, as long as you're careful about the ingredients for other things (e.g., taco sauce).
