Nachos get a makeover with my 6 Ingredient Sheet Pan Vegetarian nachos recipe!
If you’ve been around Running in a Skirt for any time you know I’m a football fan. I went to the University of Florida and Gator Nation is in my blood. Our house also follows the Steelers for pro-ball because the Hubs grew up in Pittsburgh. So it’s safe to assume that at some point on most weekends in the fall I’m watching some sort of football game. These days that often means recording them and watching them later in the evening. Life is a lot busier than it used to be.

We’re not crazy about it or anything, but the Hubs and I do enjoy a good football evening… which of course has to come with game day snacks. My favorite recipe to make during a game are my famous Easy Vegetarian Nachos recipe! They are a go-to because it only involved 6 ingredients! It’s like a foodie touchdown. 🙂
No… this isn’t a “healthy” recipe… but it sure is good! While there are still plenty of indulgences on this pan, I do make my nachos a bit better for you by trading meat for black beans, using lower fat cheese and plain greek yogurt instead of sour cream.
Beyond that though… I’m a firm believer in moderation in life and these nachos just make game day better. Don’t ya just want to take a bite!?
My trick to keeping these really tasty yet easy to prepare is buying a few already made ingredients. The biggest trick is buying store bought fresh pico de gallo in the produce department… the one with the tomatoes and onions already chopped up. It gives the nachos tons of flavor without alot of work.
Sometimes I’ll make my own guacamole but if I’m really busy, which is often the case this time of year, I don’t feel guilty about picking up store bought guac either. There is no shame in taking a shortcut sometimes.
All you do is layer the chips with the beans, pico de gallo, jalapenos and cheese!
You bake them on a foil lined sheet pan for easy clean up. Serve them like this or drag the foil onto a serving tray if you are worried about touching the hot pan.
Either way this sweet football treat is bound to become a favorite of yours as well!
I’ve been making these nachos for years and this was actually one of the first recipes I published on Running in a Skirt in early 2013. Sadly it was one of those that was in desperate need of a makeover, which it just recently got. I hope you’ll get a chance to make these on game day and enjoy them as much as we do.
An easy vegetarian nachos recipe using only 6 ingredients! Delicious and great for a party or game day.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Line a sheet pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.
Lay half the chips on the cookie sheet. Cover with half the black beans, half the pico, half the jalopenos and half of the cheese. Be careful to get the toppings actually on the chips and not the pan.
Repeat with a second layer.
