We love nachos at our house! These recipes make for a great appetizer for a big gathering or a family meal.

Vegetarian Loaded Nachos

Organic corn chips (I like Costco brand)

4 cups Monterrey Jack or white cheddar cheese, shredded

2 cans refried pinto beans

1 cup medium salsa (I like the Costco brand)

1 jar pickled jalapenos

1 pint cherry tomatoes, sliced

4 avocados

Juice of 1 lemon

Sea salt and pepper

Sour cream

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a rimmed cookie sheet with cooking spray. Heat the refried beans and salsa in a small sauce pan. Layer the pan with corn chips and half of the bean mixture. Sprinkle with half the cheese. Put in the oven until cheese has melted, about 5-10 minutes. Layer again and repeat. Make the guacamole by mashing the avocados, add the lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste. Top with tomatoes, jalapenos, guacamole and sour cream. Eat right away and enjoy!
