Vegetarian Nachos

Well, being born and raised in Texas, I am always a little uncertain when I hear something like “vegetarian chili” or “veggie nachos.”  It just doesn’t seem right.  But…I’m always playing around with recipes, and made a what turned out to be a fantastic veggie and black bean chili the other day.  So, why not make nachos!  All I can say is…WOW!!!  These are the real deal.  Now, of course, the chili is super healthy, vegan, and all that…these nachos alter that a bit…but still, they are vegetarian, and just so dang good.  You’re gonna love them!  Make a batch of the chili, and then indulge a bit with these nachos.  Delish!!
