You can’t avoid it, the Super Bowl is happening this Sunday and this means it’s time to share (or not) great food while yelling at the TV! Party food is a favorite of mine and I love bringing stellar vegan appetizers, dips and more to gatherings, for people of all diets to enjoy. Enter this Supreme Nacho Burger!
This recipe is great for Super Bowl parties in that it would be really easy to set up a build-your-own-burger bar with all of the accoutrements necessary. A crock pot for the queso, bowls for lettuce, guacamole, sliced veggies and peppers, and plates for toasted buns and warm burger patties.
Now, about the particulars of this divine nacho burger hybrid. The burger patty is gluten-free, oil-free, soy-free and is crusted in chips (specifically Beanfields Pico de Gallo chips); then it’s topped with an amazing queso cheese sauce, that is a recipe from the awesome Joni Marie Newman (and you can find it on her blog), then guacamole and peppers, with crunchy romaine lettuce on the bottom. And you can’t forget to toast the buns!
There is so much flavor packed into every bite of this Supreme Nacho Burger, so you know that it’ll be a hit with all party-goers! Maybe leave off the fresh jalapeño slices for the weak-tongued. 😉 For more vegan Super Bowl recipes, find links and pictures at the end of this post!
