Instant Pot Vegan Nachos

About the author


My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is truly a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and enjoying adequate exercise. By experimenting in the kitchen and openly sharing my meals, I learned that healthy eating is hardly boring and that by making a few adjustments, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my personal fitness goals. Our bodies are built in the kitchen and sculpted in the gym.

Ingredients for 5 servings

  • 1 large (~340g) russet potato, peeled and chopped into large chunks
  • 1 large carrot (~75g)
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 cup low sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 5oz unsweetened almond milk (OR coconut milk, oat milk or hemp milk)
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot starch + 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 can (10oz/283g) Rotel tomatoes (OR diced tomatoes with green chiles)
  • Garnish IDEAS over chips (not included in macro count)
    • 1/3 cup black beans (drained)
    • 1/2 cup chopped green onion
    • 1/4 cup red onion, sliced
    • 2/3 cup guacamole
    • jalapeno (red or green)
  1. Set oven to 420F.
  2. Place a bell pepper on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  Roast for 12-15 minutes, or until the outside begins to blister.  Once finished, remove the skin and inside seeds, then chop into pieces and set aside.
  3. In a pressure cooker or Instant Pot, add the potato, carrot, garlic and veggie broth.  Cook for 7 minutes on HIGH, then release the pressure.
  4. Add in the remaining ingredients – EXCEPT the canned tomatoes – and the chopped bell pepper flesh.  Use an immersion blender, OR transfer everything to a high powered blender or food processor.  Blend until super smooth and silky like melted cheese.  Add tablespoons of plant milk if needed to thin it out.
  5. Once you reach your desired consistency, stir in the canned tomatoes and enjoy!

  6. You can eat the queso with corn chips or your favorite fresh, raw veggies like celery, bell peppers and broccoli.  Alternatively, you load up a baking tray with chips, then pour the cheez over the chips and add the toppings like beans, onion, jalapeno and guacamole!
