Plant-Based Tortilla & Jackfruit BBQ Casserole

This Plant-Based Tortilla & Jackfruit BBQ Casserole is essentially loaded nachos, but I like to call it a casserole because it just feels more like a meal than just nachos. It’s wholesome and filling, and I think that begs for the name “casserole” – don’t you? This is a great way to get kids (or adults) to eat more veggies and is an excellent Meatless Monday dish!

This recipe is not only vegetarian because of the use of jackfruit, it’s also vegan thanks to the use of Loca Plant-Based Potato Queso. This delicious queso sauce is made from potatoes and other veggies and it’s creamy and cheesy and oh-so-good! Unlike many other dairy-free cheeses, this one is not made with nuts. You can serve it as it is with tortilla chips or use it in recipes like this – it’s very versatile. And, it comes in regular or spicy. I used regular for this dish.
