Meatless Nachos - Partnership with Hexa

Updated: Dec 22, 2022

Lately, I have been seeing TikTok videos about Doritos chips served with ground meat, cheese and all kinds of toppings. I thought of recreating that with a meatless version. And this idea just popped into my head. Maybe perhaps, I have been cooking legumes these days and this just came naturally.

Anyway, I am using a mixture of lentils. You can also use chickpeas or even ground meat if desired. But keep in mind that if you are using ground meat, the cooking method will be different from this.

What better way to top this yummiliciousness than to use Hexa's Jalapeño Cheese Sauce Premix Powder? The spiciness is all balanced out with some sour cream. The combination works its magic wonderfully; the lentil stew, the crispy tortilla chips, the spicy cheese sauce and the tang from the sour cream. Perfect!
