Nacho Momma’s Roasted Vegetables

This is Nacho Momma’s Roasted Vegetables! No really, that’s the name of this recipe. But remember back in the day when we’d roast (or boil) broccoli and then cover it in Velveeta cheese? Well, this is an updated, healthier take on that with many more flavors included thanks to the abundance of veggies used. And that’s the beauty of this dish. You can switch up the vegetables as you like.

The main things that will stay the same, regardless of what veggies you use, are the taco seasoning and the Loca Plant-Based Potato Queso. This “cheese” sauce is a delicious dairy-free, vegan sauce that is creamy and delicious.

This dish was a huge hit and was SO good. It can be served as a main dish (especially if you’re serving vegetarian/vegan guests) or as a side dish.
