Prep time:  20 minutes

Cook time: 10 minutes

Serves: 4


Baked Tortillas
  • 12 small corn tortillas
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder (optional)
  • Salt to taste
Vegan Nacho Sauce Toppings
  • 1-2 jalapeños, thinly sliced (if you prefer less heat, remove the ribs and seeds)
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1 red onion, finely diced
  • ½ cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 2-3 limes, sliced


    1. Baked Tortillas: Preheat oven to 350°F.  Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
    2. In a small bowl, whisk together the lime juice, chili powder, and salt.  Brush each tortilla on both sides with the mixture.  Cut each tortilla into 8 wedges and arrange the wedges on the lined baking sheet. 
    3. Bake for 6-8 minutes or until crispy and slightly golden around the edges.  Keep an eye on the tortilla chips as they can burn very quickly.  
    4. Vegan Nacho Sauce: Place the contents of the Cheese Starter Pack, water, cumin, and chili powder into a high-speed blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Transfer the cheese sauce to a saucepan over medium-high heat and whisk until thickened. Add the diced green chiles.
    5. Assembly with Toppings: Place the tortilla chips on a large plate or platter, pour nacho sauce over the top, and finish with your favorite toppings.


    • You can add so many other toppings to the mix. Try adding corn, green onions, vegan sour cream or yogurt, black beans, pinto beans, pickled jalapeños, black olives, and guacamole.
