My daughter became vegetarian over a year ago and I think one of the foods she misses the most is barbecue. But now she has this recipe to help her get her barbecue fix.

We were grocery shopping and she expressed a desire to make BBQ Nachos. I suggested she use some “meatless” crumbles and she totally came up with the rest. When I tasted the finished product, I was blown away. It is delicious! So much so, I talked her into making it for me for lunch two other days that week.

Vegetarian BBQ Nachos made with meatless crumbles and a quick and easy queso sauce.

First she sautes the “meat”, corn, and onion in a nonstick skillet. Once the onion has softened, she adds bbq sauce. She keeps it warm while she makes a quick queso sauce using a roux, milk, and shredded Monterey Jack cheese. Some salsa, cilantro, and jalapeno peppers finish off the nachos.

These nachos are a little sweet and spicy from the bbq sauce and packed with tons of flavor. As with any nacho recipe,you can tailor it to suit your tastes. Β Use your favorite bbq sauce and try adding different ingredients like black beans, sour cream, or guacamole. A drizzle of Ranch dressing would be fabulous too.

Vegetarian BBQ Nachos are ready in a flash and are a taste sensation not just for vegetarians, but any nacho lover.
