Serve these vegetarian nachos at your next party, and watch them disappear. All the classic nacho flavors are here--black beans, Mexican cheese, spicy jalapeño--plus jackfruit, a super-meaty tropical fruit that serves as a filling but meat-free topping for these easy nachos. Source:, March 2019

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add jalapeño and 1/2 cup onion; cook, stirring often, until tender, about 4 minutes. Add flour and cumin; cook, stirring often, for 1 minute. Add milk and water; bring to a boil, whisking often. Reduce heat to medium and gradually stir in mozzarella and Mexican cheese blend; cook, whisking constantly, until the cheese is completely melted, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat, cover and keep warm.

  • Arrange chips in an even layer on a large rimmed baking sheet lined with foil. Top with jackfruit and the cheese sauce. Sprinkle evenly with beans, tomatoes and the remaining 1/2 cup onion. Top with cilantro. Serve with lime wedges.
