Layered Nacho Bake- Vegetarian

Run don’t walk to the grocery store so you have time to put this together for the game..or anytime actually! This is a cheesy yummy nacho bake that you will need a fork for! Layers of nacho chips, refried beans, salsa and lots of cheese..nothing bad here!

Everything is from a jar or a package, unless you use beef..which you will have to cook before putting this together. This makes a big lasagna size pan full, so if you don’t have lots of people to eat it , you can halve it! Baked in the oven until the cheese is melted then top with cut up green onions and diced red pepper. The difference from this and regular nachos is baked this way everything kind of melds together to make one yummy dish!

Here is the recipe

Layered Nacho Bake

1  425g bag of nacho chips *** I use the unsalted ones ***there will be some left over

1 pkg of Mexican Veggie ground round  ***if you want to use beef, use 1 lb & a pkg of taco seasoning

1  398 ml can of refried beans

1  635 ml jar of salsa

1  320 g bag of shredded cheddar cheese ***you can use any cheese you prefer here that melts

1  125 ml can of sliced  jalapeño , drained

3  green onions, chopped

1/2 red pepper, diced

Method

  1. Spray a 9 x 13 lasagna pan
  2. Cover the bottom of the pan with the nacho chips, approx 1/3 of the bag…you don’t want them  1 deep, i and mine at least 2 deep…..cover the whole pan…..I didn’t measure since its hard to measure whole nacho chips!!
  3. Crumble  1/2 of the pkg of veggie ground round and put all over the nacho chips  ***if you want to use beef, season 1 lb of ground beef with a pkg of taco seasoning and cook according to the directions on the pkg. Make sure the beef is completely cooked and drain the fat off before putting this tougher.
  4. Next, dot 1/2 of the can of the refried beans all over the meat…it is not easy to spread so I just dotted it all over
  5. Now, spread 1/2 of the jar of salsa on, I used a spoon to spread this evenly over everything
  6. Now comes the cheese, sprinkle 1/2 the pkg all over
  7. REPEAT all the layers once more. the last layer is cheese
  8. Top with the sliced jalapeño
  9. Bake for 30 minutes in a 400F oven…the time may vary depending on your oven, you want the cheese to be melted
  10. Top with the chopped green onions and diced red pepper

Serve with sour cream, avocado & diced tomato

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
