Rita’s Famous Nachos Recipe

Rita’s Famous Nachos Recipe - So Good So You

Plant-based eater or not, if you’re a nacho-loving human you need to do yourself a favor and try this recipe.  Packed with shiitake mushrooms, black beans, and cashew queso, these nachos will give any other version a good run for their money. We know this because we shared Rita’s nacho recipe on Instagram a while back and received numerous compliments on how they turned out. One of our team members even remarked that she wouldn’t have noticed the difference in “queso” had we not shared the list of ingredients.
