Simply Nachos is a staple Quick 'N Easy Meal at the Morgan Homestead. We love Mexican flavors and with the addition of a new corn chip, Trader Joe's Tortilla Chips With An Identity Crisis, the dish is even better tasting! This is also a great meal for guests that show up at the last minute and you have nothing prepared.

Turn on the Broiler.
Create my Salsa de Pico or open a jar of store bought.
Peel and dice a ripe avocado and set aside.
Open a frozen package of Boca Burger Ground Burger Crumbles and place in a pan sprayed with a non-stick oil spray.

I made my own vegan burger crumbles using 2 Boca Burger Patties.
HINT: If you don't have Boca Burger Ground Burger Crumbles, make your own by frying two Boca Burger Patties and then crumble them with a fork in the pan.
Organic Canned Beans
Open a can of organic black or pinto beans.
Pour the beans into a sieve and rinse under water till liquid is clear and drained.
Heat in a heavy bottomed skillet and set aside.
Tortilla Chips & Cheese
Grate the vegan cheese.
Spread a thin layer of tortilla chips over the bottom of a bowl or plate.
Sprinkle a thin layer of vegan cheese over the tortilla chips.
Place bowls under a pre-heated broiler and melt the cheese.
The Beans & Boca Burger Ground Crumbles
Combine the warm black beans and Boca Burger Crumbles and sprinkle half the portion over the each plate of broiled tortilla chips.
Add your favorite salsa and hot sauce and EAT!
