These Vegetarian Nachos with Beyond Beef are made with plant based ground beef, corn, tomatoes, black beans, Monterrey Jack cheese and baked on a bed of tortilla chips.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound plant based ground beef
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/3 cup corn kernels from can, drained
  • 1 14 oz can diced tomato, drained
  • 1 14 oz canned black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 standard size bag of tortilla chips
  • 2 cups shredded Monterrey Jack or Colby Jack cheese
  • 1 jalapeno, sliced
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro
  • ½ cup sour cream to serve


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Add oil on medium heat and wait for it to shimmer. Stir in the plant based ground beef as well as the garlic. Season with salt, pepper, cumin, chili powder and garlic powder. Cook for 4-5 minutes, tossing frequently. Add the corn, tomato, black beans and keep cooking until the meat is fully cooked, about another 4-5 minutes.
  3. Add parchment paper on a baking sheet and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  4. Add the tortilla chips onto the prepared baking sheet. Place the “meat” on the bed of tortilla chips. Sprinkle the cheese and add the slices of jalapeno.
  5. Bake for 6-8 minutes, watching closely, until the cheese melts.
  6. Take the baking sheet out of the oven. Garnish with cilantro and serve with sour cream.


  • You can use Monterrey Jack or Colby Jack cheese for this recipe. Other cheeses that melt well are Mozzarella, cheddar, Pepper Jack, or American. If you are vegan, feel free to make this recipe vegan and use vegan cheese.
  • You can buy plant based ground beef almost in all US grocery stores. Some good brands are Pure Farmland, Crave House and Nature’s Fynd.
