Blue Sin-Carne Nachos

nachos1

As I’ve said before, it is rare that I have tacos, or some form of tacos, on Tuesday. None-the-less, Taco Tuesday inspired this entire recipe! No matter what day of the week, these Blue Sin-Carne Nachos are ready for you next taco night! The Jalapeno, Cashew Queso is creamy, spicy and tastes like traditional queso! And if you haven’t tried jackfruit, you are in for a treat! It is chewy just like meat. Although jackfruit is a fruit and is sweet when it’s ripe, it is not sweet when it is canned in a brine. In my recipe, the jackfruit is definitely savory! In case you are wondering, the name Blue Sin-Carne Nachos came from the Blue Tortilla Chips I used, “Sin-Carne” means “without meat” in Spanish and of course, this is a Nacho bowl! Buen provecho (meaning Bon appetite or Enjoy you meal)!!
