Nachos with avocado-cashew cream!

Last night I was craving nachos.  I got the idea in my head to make some sort of avocado topping for the nachos.  And I had the idea to blend some avocados with cashews…because cashews seem to make most things better.  I did some research and found a few recipes similar to the idea I had in my head.  And I came up with my own avocado-cashew cream topping!

I caught sleepy Juniper yawning this afternoon. I like to image that she’s singing a song. Perhaps Erasure? Probably Oh L’amour.

Avocado-Cashew Cream

  • One avocado
  • 1/2 raw cashews soaked for a few hours
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne powder (if you don’t like spicy things, just leave this out)
  • 1 teaspoon nutritional yeast

Blend the soaked cashews with the water until super smooth!  Transfers to a food processor.  My blender didn’t want to blend the avocados.  If yours does…then no need to transfer.  Add the avocado and spices.  Blend and then serve!  I left mine chill in the fridge for about 30 minutes, but it’s ok to use it right away!

Avocado-cashew cream!

Usually we top our nachos with tvp, refried beans and some melty gooey vegan cheese.  I felt like being a little healthier so I chopped up some raw veggies.  I also had some corn and pinto beans to add to the fun!

Also…everything is better with Tapatio sauce! Happy Nacho-ing!

  1. Wow. This looks sooooo delicious. What kind of avocado did you use? Just curious, because even when I lived in FL I loved to use Haas, they’re just so tasty.

  2. Dang, that looks good! Now I’m craving nachos!
