Yield: 8

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups cashews organic, raw (soaked overnight in cold water)
  • 1 bell pepper - orange (seeds removed, chopped)
  • 1 tablespoon ancho chile powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice (1 lime)
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 2 cups red beets large (peeled and sliced in thin rounds)
  • 6 tablespoons macadamia nut oil
  • 2 cups sweet potato large (peeled and sliced in thin rounds)
  • 2 cups yams (peeled and sliced thin in rounds)
  • 1 bunch green onions (about 1 cup finely diced)
  • 1 bunch cilantro (about 1 cup chopped)

Directions:

To Make “Nacho Cheese” Sauce:

  • Soak the cashews at least 8 hours in cold water just to cover. Drain the water.
  • Put the cashews in a high-powered blender and add about 1 cup fresh cold water. Blend on high until creamy and smooth. If you feel it is too thick, simply add more water a little at a time to create a runny cream consistency.
  • Add the orange bell pepper, ancho chile, garlic powder, cumin, and lime juice to blend into a creamy “cheese” sauce.
  • Hold in refrigerator up to a week or freeze for later.

To Make Crisps:

  • Preheat oven to 375F (convection if possible).
  • Line 3 sheet pans with parchment paper.
  • Toss the red beets with 2 tbsp macadamia nut oil and spread around one sheet pan.
  • Toss the sweet potatoes and yams each with 2 tbsp macadamia nut oil and spread on the other two sheet pans.
  • Roast about 10 minutes and check. You may find that having a cool sheet pan handy to place browned crisps on is helpful as they tend to cook at different rates and some may need a few extra minutes. Watch every couple of minutes until all the crisps are crunchy or lightly browned.

To Make Nachos:

  • Warm the Nacho Cheese Sauce over low heat until bubbly. It will thicken quickly and you can easily thin it out a little with water.
  • Place Crisps on a platter, drizzle with Nacho Cheese Sauce and garnish with Green Onions and Cilantro. Enjoy!

Notes:

• Add Taco Seasoned Meat or chickpeas for protein.
• Add chipotle pepper or minced jalapenos for heat.
• Add avocado, diced tomatoes, and shredded greens for added health benefits.
