Nachos Fries with Vegan Lentil Taco Meat
I’ve been obsessed with vegan queso lately (this one by Siete Foods specifically) and I’ve literally been meal planning for the week, thinking of ways to use it. I was craving something comforting and really wanted nachos and French fries and came up with this bowl and it’s so good.
There are several ways to serve this meal – you can serve it as a build-your-own nacho fry bar (and put all of the ingredients in separate bowls), as a family-style appetizer, or just simply as a bowl meal, as shown here. There are so many ways to serve this and I hope you have fun with it.
This lentil taco meat is a bit different than the lentil taco meat recipe I shared with my Taco Skillet the other month, because this one has chopped walnuts which give the lentils a heartiness and a solid texture, more similar to that of traditional taco meat.
And if you don’t want to use frozen French fries (or can’t find them!) just roast sweet potatoes in wedges or fry slices. If you can’t find this specific queso, any one will do – or if you’re not a vegan, use a regular queso or some melted cheese (a shredded Mexican blend will work great here.)
Add a spicy kick with some jalapeños! I’m obsessed with this meal, and I can’t wait to see how you make it with #inspiralized.
