Vegan Korean Bbq Nachos
Hello & Happy Tuesday!!
Whenever I explore new food concepts I always like to try a few different variations. Needless to say, after I developed a recipe for Mexican Street Corn nachos for Beafields Chips and my mind was blown..
I had to give it another go!!
While nachos are typically comprised of beans and cheese, life is just too short for plain jane eats, ..even when it comes to nachos!
I love this recipe as it packs heat, sweetness, multiple textures, flavors that blend seamlessly together, and uses fried wontons instead of chips!
If you love a fun concept that’s bright, colorful, and a definite crowd pleaser..

Remove from oven and transfer chips to a cooling rack in a single layer. Set aside
