” Meaty” Nachos

Today, I was looking for a yummy mexican style lunch and love the idea of a one-dish meal. This is that type of meal. It’s “meaty”, has a bit of a spiciness to it and is an easy dish to make. It’s a great dish for lunch, as an appetizer or even a dinner along with rice and veggies, like corn and roasted vegetables, maybe even with homemade cornbread. With a quick preparation, it’s an almost instant dish! Serve with a medium-heat salsa and some sour cream. Enjoy!


1 package Gluten Free Gardein beefless ground

1 small onion, chopped

S & P to taste

1 tspn Garlic salt

1/2 tspn Celery salt

1 tspn chili powder

1/2 tspn ground mustard

1 bag Go Veggie shredded Cheddar Cheese

Canola oil, enough on pan to saute onions & beefless ground

Tortilla chips

Tofu sour cream, for topping, optional

Medium- heat salsa, for topping, optional


1) Preheat oven to 365° F.

2) In a medium sized baking dish, lay out a layer of tortilla chips on bottom (as thick a layer as you prefer). Place off to side.

3) Saute in canola oil, the chopped onion, until browned. Add beefless ground & cook for a few minutes. Add some water if it starts to burn on pan. Add spices, salt & pepper and cook for another 5 minutes.

4) Place the “meat” mixture on top of tortilla chips in baking dish.

5) Put shredded cheese on top layer.

6) Bake in oven for 5 minutes.

7) Serve warm with toppings, like sour cream & salsa.

* Optional: Add black olives & small green chili peppers to top dish as well if you wish.
