Happy Monday y’all!
Today we’re going to talk FOOTBALL FOOD. Because even if you’re not a huge football fan (I feel ya), I’m sure you’re still a big fan of game day eats 😉
Like many of you out there, I’m sure, on Sundays (and Monday nights) the TV is on from 1-7 pm in my house, thanks to my husband’s obsession with football (and the Buffalo Bills). I’ll be in and out, watching parts of the games with him— mostly to keep tabs on my current fantasy players—but my real love is making the FOOD to eat during the games. Big surprise, right?
This weekend, I attempted a football treat that I’ve honestly never made before: NACHOS! I think I’ve told you guys before, but I’ve never liked cheese— like, even as a child (literally, I peeled it off my pizza since the age of 5. strange, right?)—- so nachos never appealed to me in the slightest. But one thing I do love is cashew cheese! It has that perfectly rich, creamy taste without any of that super strong cheesy flavor that I’m not so much a fan of.
I loveee putting clumpy cashew cheese on pizzas, like this crispy kale pesto pizza and this mushroom potato tomato white pizza. But this time I made it EVEN better with some spicy, tangy green chiles. Perfect for a big ol’ plate of messy, creamy, spicy nachos— vegan nachos, to be exact!
YOU GUYS. It is incredible! I swear, Nate and I were licking the bowl clean it was so addicting. And to make it even better, this chile cashew cheese takes all of 3 minutes to whip it up. Literally, magical stuff, I tell you.
And to make your life EVEN easier, I used this super fresh, natural GOODFOODS Tableside Chunky Guacamole to top off my loaded nachos. As much as I love homemade guacamole, sometimes avocados are just too darn expensive, or aren’t ripe exactly when I want them. That’s where GOODFOODS comes into play. Their ingredients are as follow: hass avocados, tomatoes, salt, red onions, cilantro lime juice, jalapeños, and garlic. That’s it! Pretty fantastic right?? Definitely my go-to brand when I’m in an avocado crunch.
GOODFOODS also makes a variety of flavored gaucamoles, beside their traditional chunky kind, like Southwest Guacamole and Spicy Tomatillo Guacamole. My favorite is the Pineapple Poblano Guacamole— which I know would also pair perfectly with these fish tacos or these loaded burrito bowl potato skins. It’s so fresh and tangy, with just a twinge of sweetness!
I found both of these flavors of guacamole at my local Target and in bulk at Costco. Definitely check them out the next time you’re looking for some fresh and easy game day eats! Click here to find a store location near you.
Hope you all have a wonderful Monday, and if you need a pick-me-up at the end of the day— because, let’s face it, most Mondays do— throw together these 15 minute vegan nachos for the best ending a day could have 🙂
