Cafe #20: Plant-Based Nachos

Ring ring! The Diary has another new recipe! Hello everyone, Junne here with a new recipe. The reason why I made this recipe is because it's been a minute...a whooole long minute...well actually weeks, months, years, you get me people? In other words, it's been awhile since I tasted this dish. I don't know why but I guess I didn't really bother to order any or as recently, it just crossed my mind to make it or something. Ironically, yesterday when I made it I heard it was National Taco Day...but by this dish being Nachos, I don't think it technically counts but it kinda does if you consider the ingredients used. But I don't know! Also, since I'm trying to cut down on meat, I was able to find some Plant-Based meat and it tasted just like real meat! Therefore, in today's recipe, we are going to make Plant-Based Nachos! Let's get started! 

Serving Size: I wanna say about 4-6 people but it really depends on how much Chips and Beef you use. As always, if you want to cook for more people, double the recipe and use more than one Pie Pan. 

Cooking Time: 20-25 minutes. 


Chopped Green Pepper

Chopped Red Pepper 

Chopped Yellow Pepper

Chopped Orange Pepper

Chopped Yellow Onions

Chopped Green Onions

Chopped Tomatoes

Chopped Lettuce (I used Romaine)

1 Bag of Shredded Mexican Four Cheese Blend 

1 Can of Black Beans (I used Bush's Best) 

2 Bags of Gardein Plant-Based Beefless Ground Crumbles

1 Pack of Original Taco Seasoning (I used Old El Paso)

1 Pack of Mild Taco Seasoning (I used Old El Paso) 

1 Bag of Dorritos (Party Size) 


Black Pepper

Meat Tenderizer 


Garlic Herb/Black Pepper & Sea Salt 

Garlic Onion/Black Pepper & Sea Salt

Himalayan Pink Salt/Black Pepper & Garlic 


Large Frying Pan 

Medium-size Sauce Pan 


Can Opener (For the Canned Black Beans)

Large Stirring Spoon 


1) Pour the Plant-Based crumbles into the frying pan and follow the instructions on the back of the bags. 

2) Follow the instructions on the Taco Seasoning packs and pour it along with the water into the frying pan. Also, sprinkle the seasonings in there except for the Garlic/Herb Black Pepper one. 

3) After a minute or two, pour some Chopped Onions into the pan and let it cook for 1 minute. 

4) Take the beef mixture off the stove and place it in a serving container. 

5) Pour the can of Black Beans into the Sauce Pan and let it simmer for 5-10 minutes or until it starts to boil. Stir occasionally and sprinkle the Garlic Herb/Black Pepper seasoning inside. 

6) Chop up the Peppers, Onions, Tomatoes, and Lettuce. 

7) Place the Dorritos into a serving dish like a plate, bowl, etc and you can pretty much layer the nachos however you want as long as you sprinkle the Mexican Four Cheese as the last topping. For example, I put the beef on the Dorritos first, then the Peppers, Onions, Lettuce, Tomatoes, Black beans, and the Cheese so you can do that or your own thing. 

8) Place your Nachos into the Microwave for 1 minute. 

9) Enjoy!
