Bean Nacho Cheese Recipe
I saw the Garbanzo Bean Taco Recipe, and last night while at the movies, desperately trying to avoid eating nachos, I decided I needed to find a healthy recipe for Nacho Cheese. I am sure the stores sell some sort of soy nacho cheese, but sometimes I wonder about food processing even in that form and think it would be much better if I could make it fresh myself. So if anyone knows of an idea to make some nacho cheese sauce, or maybe even a paste out of regular beans of some sort, please tell me your ideas!!! ;D
We make this recipe for nachos all the time (I wouldn't call it healthy, but is cetainly not as bad as store-bought or real nacho cheese):
Mix it with some salsa, pour over chips, then add some beans, lettuce, and diced tomato. Oh yeah, and olives, I guess (I hate olives, so I forget that people like them). I use whole wheat flour instead of the white flour the recipe calls for, works just fine. Yummy!
Check out Earth Balance margarine, it has no hydrogenated oils. We don't eat anything with hydrogenated fats either. :)
THIS IS ADDICTIVE AND YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!! LOL
I love my quasi queso variation the best. That reminds me, I am hungry, I'll go whip up a batch. I don't mess with chips, just give me a spoon!
Just think, your nachos become a dip into healthy nut oils and B vitamins. Add beans, whole grain corn chips and tomato salsa to the cheez and you have something so disgustingly healthy, you'll have to eat it for dinner, not a snack!
