Chipotle Chili NachosY’all, it’s that time of year. Sports-centered parties are happening everywhere, and the pinnacle of the season—the Super Bowl—is almost upon us. You know what this means? Awesome nacho snack time! Not that I need an excuse to whip up a delicious plate of vegan nachos…

I recommend using these stellar products to make your journey to Taste Town that much easier: Larry’s Southwestern Chipotle Sauce, Atlantic Natural Foods 5-Bean Chili, and Beanfields Chips! These snack staples are a phenomenal foundation on which to build your pile of nacho goodness.

Nachos Chili Chipotle Three Key IngredientsChipotle Nacho Sauce, Chili, Beanfields Chips

The chipotle sauce pairs perfectly with the substantial, savory chili while the chips bring a gluten-free, corn-free crunch to the dish. Add a few of your favorite toppings, including my homemade spicy nacho sauce, and these nachos will be gone in minutes.

Of course, you can use vegan cheese shreds instead of the cheese sauce for an even shorter prep time. That is, if you’ve got the patience to let the cheese melt. Here’s a photo summary of what you’re working with:
