Corn-free Nachos + Ridiculously Tasty Toppings

I may or may not be on a major Mexican kick right now. I can't seem to get guacamole + fresh salsa in my tummy fast enough.

In school, we learned quickly that when we didn't know the answer to a question like, "list 5 foods that have Vitamin E", or "List 3 foods that support a healthy pregnancy", 9.5 times out of 10 answering with avocado was a sure thing.

Maybe all the avocado I've been eating will help me with my race tomorrow? Maybe, maybe not, but one thing's for certain - I would run for a plate of these nachos.

 

Corn-free Nachos + Ridiculously Tasty Toppings

Gluten free, Dairy free, Sugar free, Yeast free, Corn free

Yield: 2 entree servings, 4 side servings  

Rice nachos with homemade guacamole + cilantro salsa. A perfect summer dinner!

Ingredients

  • 1 batch of Chef & Steward's Reggae Salsa
  • 1 batch of Spicy Foodie's Guacamole
  • 4 rice tortillas, each cut into 8 triangle pieces
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp herbamare
  • 1/4 cup non-dairy cheese, grated - we used daiya
  • 1/2 lb ground meat - we used yak
  • pinch crushed red chili's

Directions

  1. Prepare salsa + guacamole per instructions [I didn't change a thing about either recipe].
  2. Preheat oven to 375F and brush triangle wrap pieces with olive oil and sprinkle with herbamare. Place on a cookie sheet and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, flipping at the 10 minute mark. Be sure to watch these very closely as they can burn. Once complete, remove from oven, sprinkle with a bit more herbamare, and set aside to cool.
  3. Meanwhile, place ground meat in a frying pan and fry on medium-high until no longer pink. Dash with crushed chili's and remove from heat.
  4. Place a layer of chips on the bottom of your plate. Top with cheese + meat and serve guacamole + salsa on the side. Enjoy!

I've been making these nachos for a couple of weeks and couldn't be happier with the way they turned out. There's just some days I don't want to cook [believe it or not] so this recipe is perfect. All of the ingredients are easy to prep and make for fantastic leftovers!
