Veggie Loaded Nachos | Olives & Garlic

I am looking forward to this weekend. Super Bowl is here and we’re having a party. I planned a pretty extensive menu to feed the crowd of about 15. Tonight right after work I am heading straight to the grocery store. There is no way I am attempting to shop on Saturday. It always seems as if there are gazillions of people and only four registers open.

I get excited to throw these sorts of parties, but my sanity is somewhat on the line. In efforts to reduce the stress and make the process smooth, I am doing some prep cooking on Saturday.

I got a great loaded nachos recipe for you in case you’re still looking for ideas for Sunday. They turned out so good Kurt and I ate this entire dish all by ourselves. Thankfully these are much healthier, meat free and loaded with veggies.

    Sounds like your house is the place to be Sunday! 15 people? Sounds like you’ll be going through a lot of food my friend. Who will you be rooting for? These nachos look delicious. Look at all those pretty colors. The veggies cancel out the cheese, right? *Wink*
